GDV Book Club – Dark Souls (Part 1)

The Book Club is back and in effect! Happyman, Mike, Moogle and Specs discuss Dark Souls’ first half area by area, from breaking out of the Undead Asylum to claiming the Lordvessel at Anor Londo. Listen carefully, skeleton.

It goes without saying that this episode contains spoilers for the whole game, but we try to keep quiet about the sequels (Specs hasn’t played them).

Lawyer Guy Demo 3 (Tetrahedron Alley) released

Hi all,

I would like to thank all of Lawyer Guy’s tireless and very patient playtesters. You can now download Lawyer Guy Demo 3 from the Lawyer Guy website. The game is also now available on itch.io and GameJolt.

If you playtested this version or the last version, you should be able to find your name on the new credits screen. Also, the level has changed quite substantially since the version that playtesters were given, so give it another shot if you want to see the changes made in response to your feedback.

My plan is to have another level out in less than 2 years.

Love,

Catsman

Podcast on friday, starting sometime between 7PM and 8PT BST

Remember that this is british summertime now and the time gap might be weird for you, as always you can find that out on this handy website.

Please bring something that you think is interesting for show and tell, or I will insist on talking about a bunch of garbage that I made up!

Love, Cats

PS: To all playtesters of Lawyer Guy who may be looking forward to seeing their name in the credits because the game has actual credits: apologies for the delay. Busy as always. Good news is, I will soon be outsourcing my entire internet persona to catsmanbot, whom I have recently taught to use the word ‘whom’ incorrectly.

Episode 62 – Yahaha!

Podcast on the 22nd

Hi all! Based on the people I’ve surveyed, it seems as though the 22nd is the preferred date. Likely around our usual time (3PM). We’re now in British Summertime, just to make things confusing. If you’re reading this, you’re welcome to come along, you can find our mumble info in the sidebar to your right. Remember that I am still trying to make SHOW&TELL a thing, so bring any interesting bits of news, gossip or idle speculation you like. In other words, do my job for me because I am oh so lazy. Also because if you don’t, I have prepared another segment, which will be awful.

I don’t have too much else to report – but I hope to be streaming some more Lawyer Gyy development in the coming week. If you haven’t sent me feedback yet, you have until whenever I decide to start streaming!

Love, Cats
