“MAGE CAST” episode #009 – See You, Space Cowgirl


Co-founders Red and Timely sit down to chat about Cosmic Star Heroine, buzzwords in the gaming industry, true substance to retro throwback games, doing more than pandering, consciousness toward length and lean game design, old versus modern JRPGs, the shift away from strategy to button mashing, sincerity and genuineness in indie games evoking the classics, the place for traditional good vs evil storytelling and pure virtue characters and archetypes, the non-necessity of cynicism, the GOTY picks for 2018, and where we were in the golden age of the 90’s.

And… announcing a launch date for MAGE CAST: Side Quests!

Want more MAGE CAST more often? Help us reach our next goal on Patreon and we’ll start releasing episodes on a weekly basis rather than every other week! If you’re a fan, considering supporting with even just a monthly pledge of $1. Build the future! Every bit of monthly support takes us closer to $150 a month for weekly episodes.
