004 – Is That Even a Game?
Is it a game? Is it a mod? Is it a taco? The 1 More Podcastle trio cut up this question for the ages into bite size, sushi-style chunks of wisdom for your auditory consumption. We don’t guarantee that the question actually gets answered, but to distract you from that there is a good bit of discussion earlier about how important music is in retro gaming. Have an opinion on retro game music or what constitutes a “game”? Let us know in the comments!
Our Intro and Outro music is by Ben Landis off his album Adventures in Pixels – “Credits Music for an 8 Bit RPG” (Twitter @thebenlandis)
The musical Interlude was “A Flower Blooming in the Slums” by The World is Square
