Episode 28 - Flashbang a Unicorn - Pokémon Snap

How's the Podcast? 590pts? Hmm, It's Not Very Good...,

Today on NOCLIP we're going to be talking about Pokémon Snap, the oddball N64 game where you ride around and take photos of Pokémon. The game has quite the following and is remembered fondly by most people who played it, ourselves included, despite having very little actually going on. However, the nostalgia surrounding Snap and the design sensibilities it represents are exactly what make it such an interesting game to discuss. We talk about what could be done to bring the game into the modern age, why making a game that scores players on an artistic pursuit is inherently difficult to do, and the ethical lengths Todd Snap is willing to go to capture a mythical Pokémon on film.

Thanks for joining us again this week, and check us out next time when we talk about Assassin's Creed 2!
