If the world needs more of something: it’s videogame podcasts. I’ve been posting a lot about a specific genre of games, roguelikes, for a while now and have been doing some interesting deep dives of the data using steam’s API.
What kind of games will be covered? If you’re a fan of the following games, you’d probably be interested in this coming podcast:
- Vampire Survivors
- Slay the Spire
- Darkest Dungeon
- Caves of Qud
- The Binding of Isaac
- FTL: Faster Than Light
There’s upwards of 4000 games that are “rogue”-ish in some nature on Steam. So in an effort to keep this podcast from running itself into the ground Simpsons-style, I’m planning on only covering a select portion of that universe. I’ll save the details on what games and why for the inaugural episode sometime in the coming months.
The podcast will essentially have two goals:
- Serve as an excuse for the host (me) and co-hosts to hang out and play games we enjoy, then talk about them.
- Signal boost some lesser-known games of the genre.
