CoolGames Inc: Building an Austin Powers MMO

Welcome to yet another installment of CoolGames Inc, the podcast where each week, myself and my colleague Griffin McElroy comb through your Twitter submissions for video game ideas, pluck out our favorites and flesh them out into full-fledged concepts.

This week, we entertain such concepts as Diaper Light Drifter, standalone DLC and Danny Dorito: The Revenge of Chester Cheeto 4, before settling into one of our favorite ideas in a while: an Austin Powers massively multiplayer online role-playing game. This time around we're joined by Merritt Kopas, known best for her work as an author and critic, and known best to Griffin as the creator of Vin Diesel DMing a Game of D&D Just For You — a game that actually makes her far more qualified to host this podcast than we are.

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.

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 "winning" submission comes to us from @LRComic, who offered up this no-brainer idea:

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.
