The Short Game is experimenting with our format this week, and you’re the guinea pig! We’re calling these shortisodes; half-length (or less) episodes in which we break from our regular format of talking in depth about one game per episode and talk instead about… whatever we want! This will allow us to still get something in your feed each week (cough late cough) while we move to our bi-weekly-ish format.
In this, our first shortisode, we discuss some of the points raised in Ben Kuchera’s recent Polygon article, “To hell with longer games, tell me how SHORT your game is.” We couldn’t agree more.
