00:47:07 Thread of the Week

More discussion of narrative. I have played games where I shoot early and often. They quickly lose my attention. The games I come back to always have a good story.

Yet more chatter about Dome Keeper. I too am enjoying it and am happy at how it teaches the player by having them doing and learning from outcomes.
