CoolGames Inc: Twitch Plays RPG Maker

It's Friday, which means we're burdening you with yet another episode of CoolGames Inc! Here's the premise: Each week Griffin McElroy and I take Twitter-suggested video game ideas, sort through them and pick a favorite to turn into a full-blown design document.

This time around, we explore the idea of Nintendo characters who know how to party, take a submission from Griffin's brother Travis, trudge into uncomfortable territory with Dad or Alive Extreme, and I gets a visit from a very special plumber (Note: NOT MARIO).

Links to subscribe to CoolGames Inc in iTunes, via RSS, or using a direct MP3 download are all a click away, tucked inside the buttons below today's episode.

Theme song: "Social Science" by Maxo

Want your game idea to be featured on a future episode of CoolGames Inc? The best bet is to follow us on Twitter: I'm on there as @babylonian and Griffin is @griffinmcelroy. Once a week — usually on Wednesday afternoon — we'll put out a request for your pitches, so stay vigilant!

This week's inspiration comes @DaniBarstad, who gave us this humdinger of a submission:

The next level of puzzles.

Take a break from your day by playing a puzzle or two! We’ve got SpellTower, Typeshift, crosswords, and more.
