Tom F returns from the forests of Sweden and joins Pip, Alex and John to discuss: what Tom was doing in the forests of Sweden, Obduction, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Tricky Towers, Fallout 4: Nuka World, and what features we’d want our augmented limbs to have. Show notes:

Tom’s been at Stugan! A game developers’ retreat where you work on your game in some cabins in the woods of Sweden with a bunch of other devs.

If his rambling descriptions of the other devs games are somehow insufficient, you can see a quick video showing a bit of all of them here.

Obduction is the new game from the Myst people, and it’s a bit smug about you being stuck.

Jack de Quidt provides evidence that Deus Ex: Mankind Divided has been art directed.

Tricky Towers is Tetris with physics – no, proper physics.

Fallout 4’s Nuka World DLC is one of the two Good Ones.

The best videogame cat is you, in HK, a game about being a cat in Kowloon.

John liked Vangers, which is a weird-looking racing role-playing adventure game, apparently.

Red Amazon is a quiet, short, creepy game set in a cabin in the woods.

The Corvette game Alex is referring to is Vette, you can see a bit of it here.

Quarantine is a grimy, nasty, violent taxi game from the nineties that Tom liked at the time.

Pip had the shareware version of Raptor: Call of the Shadows, a cool top-down shooter from the nineties.
