Learning about Love from ‘Cibele’


Just in time to miss Valentine’s Day we look at the confessional, autobiographical love story by Nina Freeman, Cibele.

Cibele is an important game in the video game landscape right now. You wont find too many games as personal and as open as it. It’s short, yet dense in its drive to reach for that singular emotion of that event. I am positive towards it on the podcast, but that was recorded weeks ago after playing it. Now, I’m having trouble remembering that emotional resonance.  Don’t really have much more to say than that. I think we had a good discussion regarding the game in any case.

The podcast is available on PopMatters, SoundCloud and through the RSS feed.

“At the ripe age of fifteen, I picked up the game that would, strange as it sounds, change my life forever. I hate to think of a video game being life changing, but that’s the truth of it.”
