    Starwhal Odyssey: Preview

    Starwhal Odyssey: Preview

    Deep in space, the cosmic metropolis of Caldera is home to many strange folk from far reaches of the universe. The residents of the tenement above the Lucky Fin restaurant: Ty- a chill Keeper of the Vibe, Petronilla- a young, exhausted, and aimless pottimus mercenary, Harker- a talented and underappreciated master chef running from his past and future, and Saach- an impulsive pact-bound dragonling with dreams of being a mega-streamer, are about to start a deeply unexpected journey. 

    CONTENT NOTE
    Mild body horror, reference to pornography, people oppressed by a soulless capitalist gig economy, lot living up to expectations.

I’m not sure anymore...

This used to my favorite podcast.
Politics aside, he always featured lots of neat indies games and designers and the group had good chemistry.
I love discovering games and types of gameplay from unknown and unheard of designers.

I just reached the start of 2019, and now we are excluding designers based on their sexuality.
And he really thinks that’s a good thing.

Bigotry is bigotry is bigotry.
I appreciate his spirit, and I am just disappointed in the execution.
