Hey, Jeppy! We’re talking about Smart Ball, the 1992 SNES Action-Adventure game by Game Freak. (They called it Jerry Boy in Japan, you probably know it by that name). Not only do we talk about slime boys, we open a Christmas card in March from The Piggs! We also take a moment to cast TV dads as the Seven Deadly Sins.
Tyler’s back, baby! …and we’re talking about Caveman Games, the 1990 port of Caveman Ughlympics for the NES. We bring on leading TADPOG Nation anthropologist, Edgelord Kyle to talk about this historically authentic “sports video game”. We wrap things up by listening to some voicemails.
It’s a bug hunt. Jacob York (of wolf fighting fame), joins Dave on this episode to discuss Into the Breach, the turn-based strategy game by Subset Games. Outside of game discussion, there are many references to the Funky Kong religion which was founded on last week’s episode. We also talk about Toad’s anatomy a little bit, and of course we make plans to purchase GamePro.
Get your holes ready! One-half of TADPOG Sweethearts, Josh Nance, joins the podcast to talk about Donut County, the 2018 indie game by Ben Esposito. Tyler is out this week, so this is a JADPIG episode (Josh and Dave Play Indie Games, duh). While unsupervised, Dave and Josh found a Funky Kong religion and talk about cat murder on a local scale!
