Welcome to another exciting installment of CoolGames Inc, where each week, myself and my dear friend Griffin McElroy take your one-line video game pitches and gently massage them until we find one worthy of our creative powers.
In this week's episode, we delve into the dark truths behind Pokéball metaphysics, reminisce about the time Jonathan Blow DDoSed GameFAQs and explore the untapped concept of 'social permadeath.' Justin McElroy guest stars.
Links to subscribe to CoolGames, Inc. in iTunes, your podcast player of choice or to download an MP3 are all a click away, tucked inside the buttons below today's episode.
Theme song: "Social Science" by Maxo
