Dan, Kim, Traci, and Kurt discuss the games that defined this genre, from Dominion to Clank, and many great games in between! This genre is a favorite of ours, and talking about all of them was a blast!

Breaking the 4th Wall in the 5th Dimension

Taylor LaBresh from Riverhouse Games joined Kurt live to make up a RPG together from scratch and play it! What they came up with is a game that works best as a single player game but also could be great with 2-5 players! While circling around a black hole threatening to kill the solo passenger, the passenger has to resolve issues that have plagued their lives. It was a fun experience that we hope you enjoy as well! To buy this RPG, you can go to http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/194027/Breaking-the-4th-Wall-in-the-5th-Dimension?sorttest=true and pay what you want to buy it. All proceeds from the sales go to the MFGCast Extra Life campaign!
