We begin another episodic adventure game to alternate between episodes of the podcast. We begin with episode 1 of Knee Deep.
The episode is a bit more chaotic than usual, mostly because I don’t think any of us knew quite what to make of Knee Deep. It’s not a bad game, but it’s also not really a good one either. It’s doing quite a few interesting things, but also it’s positioned itself as more generic work in the gaming landscape. It’s hard to read into it when everything it’s doing is rather boilerplate. And then there’s that pesky question we kept coming back to which we had no answer: why was it done in the form of a stage play?
We didn’t know if we were going to continue doing the other episodes, spoilers, but it intrigued us enough to see where it was going.
