Haven't listened to the episode yet but I'm looking forward to your takes on the whistle track. Love that game and that songReplyDelete
The whistle track is so damn catchy, and Animite is so damn likeable/funny. I have relistened to that stretch of the episode several times now. It just makes me inexplicably happy. There is so much plucky charm in the track and in Animite's adaptation to his rest stop environs.ReplyDelete
There is so much about this episode to love! MegaJay’s touching tale, Rob Nichol’s arcade witchcraft, Animite’s hilarious message from the rest stop, and Emily’s excitement about No Man’s Sky.ReplyDelete
Speaking of which, hey Emily! I had forgotten about your description of amnesia as being a way to gamify the player’s unfamiliarity with their surroundings, and consequently totally become their character. That is such a compelling description! I’ve been thinking a lot about what makes games enveloping, and this gives me more to ponder. How do you view No Man’s Sky now that you’ve had a year to process?
Chikako Kometani is not a guy.
