Episode 82 - Front Gatekeepers - Baba Is You


Podcast Is You And Podcast Has Bad Jokes

Welcome back! I hope you’ve been enjoying the scorching summer months as we pack into a single air-conditioning-less room to record a new episode on Baba Is You. This is an indie puzzle game with an incredibly unique concept, namely, being able to push around words that define the rules of the puzzle. The primary mechanic set of each level is then to manipulate these rules to provide a clear passage for whatever object you happen to be inhabiting at the time to reach whatever object represents the goal. Sound abstract? We think that’s kind of the point. We’re going to be talking about puzzle game accessibility, face-value readability in a game with a lot of moving parts, and how maybe, deep down, there’s a creepypasta in here somewhere.

Thanks for joining us again this week! We’re encouraging some viewer participation on our next episode as we’re discussing Mario Maker 2! Have a level you’re proud of?
