The Witcher is now a well-known RPG series in the west, with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt being lauded as the newest and highest bar for all other RPGs to compete with. But Geralt of Rivia began, as many legends do, with something much simpler. Join Devon (@invisifool) and Sam (@SamuelHowitt) as they work their way through the series, from the short stories to the Wild Hunt, on Myth & Kin.

This episode has a CONTENT WARNING for sexual assault.

The first episode of a new Dead Genre Chronicles series covering independent and underground RPGs, hereto known as World Revolution! World Revolution is LeeRoy Lewin (as always at @wasnotwhynot) and, in their debut, John Thyer (@farawaythyer).

This month we're talking about Middens, something of a cult-infamous surreal rpgmaker game. It's easy to think of it as like Yume Nikki with combat; we discuss those implications and some of the game's shortcomings. Content warnings for a candid discussion on violence and a brief mention of suicide! It's not an uplifting game.

Music used, in order:
Takamo - A Series of Hiccups
Takamo - Fade to Black

This month, we played a pair of games from the early GameBoy Advance library, Golden Sun and its sequel, Golden Sun: The Lost Age! They were fundamental to my (Devon's) development as a player of JRPGs, and they led to an interesting discussion!

The music tracks used have been commissioned from Fuzzy Proxy.
