GYGO Variety Hour: Why Are Brands Like This

GYGO Variety Hour: Why Are Brands Like This

Hello, and welcome to Get Your Game On! I’m Zora, and I’m here to report on… well, frankly, whatever moves me when my turn comes around.

While I generally feel that January 1 is a day like any other, I’ve been feeling particularly refreshed and ready to tackle new games and projects in 2022.
