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
