Though it’s been around since 2008, the runaway success of Double Fine Adventure pushed crowd-funding site into the line of sight of game enthusiasts everywhere. Not only did the project exceed it’s funding goals exponentially, but the video games section of the site saw a ton of new activity from first-time backers of the point and click adventure game, with Wasteland 2, Shadowrun Returns, and even a new Leisure Suit Larry.  Finally, here was a way to speak with our wallets regarding the games we want to purchase and play before a big publisher had the opportunity to deny or distort the vision of the game creators!

It’s been a while since our last ‘cast, but we’re back and here to stay! Expect slightly shorter installments, with more focus on a single topic. Also, we’ll be airing some bonus episodes during E3 2012!
