Welcome back to Postgame, Sidequest’s monthly Patreon-exclusive podcast, where the editors lay down hot takes on cold games. This is our [checks notes] October 2020 episode, releasing in January 2021. The missing episodes are in the pipeline, though, so they’ll be up in the coming month!
In this episode, we talk about queer teenhood in games and how much queer media has developed over the years—and how it’s shaped by the eras that shaped its creators. We also get in our feelings about community, walking simulators, and, in an unexpected turn of events, tennis anime?
*** Spoilers for Gone Home start when Zora says they’ll add a timestamp and continue until the end of the episode (sorry!). ***
