GYGO: Some Good, Some Bad, Some Ugly

Hello and welcome to Get Your Game On! My name is Maddi and I cannot believe we are almost at the end of September. It feels like we were just in the middle of the summer heatwave but here we are, with the shorter days of fall (at least in the northeastern U.S.) encroaching. Are you playing any games that emulate those fall vibes? If so, let me know what you’re playing in the comments! Or, if you support our Patreon at the Sega Genesis tier or higher, tell us about it in our Discord. Now, let’s get to the news. (more…)

GYGO: 6th Edition (Or Not)

Hello and welcome to Get Your Game On! My name is Maddi and you’ll never believe what I’ve been playing lately. (If you’re following along from last month, yes, I am still talking about Dicey Dungeons. It’s very good.) You know what else is pretty good, or at least… not as terrible as it has been? The bar is low, but the answer is: this week’s gaming news. Here it is. (more…)

GYGO: Meta is Still Betting Big

Hello and welcome to Get Your Game On! Did you miss me? I, Maddi, am back again for another dose of news this week. I am still just as into Dicey Dungeons as I was last week, so not much has changed on that front. But if YOU have played anything you think we should know about, let us know in the comments, or, if you’re a member of our Patreon at the Sega Genesis tier or higher, drop us a recommendation in our Discord! If you feel so moved as to pitch us, our editors’ inboxes are cursed with a terrible, unsettling hunger, and we would love for you to feed them. Anyway, here’s the news.  (more…)

July Roundtable: Journaling Games

July Roundtable: Journaling Games

July, being the peak of summer here in the US, is maybe not the time when we’re at our most introspective. But maybe it should be! This month, we’re taking a look at journaling games, a genre of… well, we’ll call them physical games, because that’s what itch.io does. In these games, players use notebooks or their preferred writing format to respond to game prompts, sometimes ending up with an art object (a la keepsake games), sometimes with a great story, and sometimes just (just!) with a wonderful experience under your belt.

GYGO: The Grift That Keeps on Giving

Hello and welcome to Get Your Game On. My name is Maddi and I hope that wherever you are, you’re staying cool during this intense July heatwave. I’ve been playing even more games than usual since going outside has started to feel like walking into an oven. I recently enjoyed both Universal Paperclips and Dicey Dungeons, which had me glued to my phone over the weekend. If you’ve been playing games to beat the heat, tell us about it on Twitter, or, if you’re a member of our Patreon at the Sega Genesis tier or higher, in our Discord! Without further ado, the news.
