CoolGames Inc: Exploring a massively multiplayer online musical

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 on the show, we try to figure out how we can incorporate one of Blockbuster's Pokémon Snap photo printers into our next project before really sinking our teeth into the idea of a musical MMO — all leading up to a quick detour into the world of Treasures for Terry.

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

This week's inspiration comes from @JohnDudebro, who, despite the hundreds of submissions we receive each week, has already managed to win twice in just six episodes:
