Bokida and What Makes Us Play Games: The InRetroSpect Show

BOKIDA_Screenshots4

On the show this month we explore the peculiar environment of Bokida and are joined by one of it’s creators, Vincent Levy (@VincentLevyGD). We also discuss what it is that makes us play games, Dan treats us to another musical flourish and the disappointment continues with the Glitch of the Month.

Also this edition of the show couldn’t have happened without the help of ‘ThePodquisition’ and ‘Boing Boing’ who, unbeknownst to them, provided the games for Dan’s Challenge.

This month’s show includes a catch up on our game Just In Time For Christmas?, we run through a mixed bag of games we received last month for the secret Santa, and we check out the gloriously punk platformer Bubsy 3d: Bubsy visits the James Turrell Retrospective by Arcane Kids.

If you’re interested in the story on how Mario has become sentient, here’s a video explaining everything…

Plus the Glitch of the Month, where the cast of Grand Theft Auto V turn into signs.
