Elden Ring, Black Hole Rainbows, and Eyes : Nonogram - Ep147




00:00 - Happy. Birthday. To. You.




07:49 - Kris and Sam’s adventure in a broken car.




15:37 - Forget the discourse: FromSoftware’s Elden Ring is filled with Lovecraftian-ish creatures, rune gathering, wonderful exploration, and becoming increasingly okay with the idea of losing a lot of progress. Also it reminds us of the OSR. ALSO also: there’s a guy called Angry Pumpkin Head, apparently?




37:17 - What are our thoughts about black holes? What about rainbows? More importantly, after that tangent, what about Black Hole Rainbows from June Dune Games Production? It’s a 2-6 player, quick-playing and fairly light game that has absurdly high production values, and took us a bit by surprise by just how good it is.




48:18 - After a little faffing around time on Reddit, we’ve been checking out Eyes : Nonogram from Gamefox. If you’ve played Picross or Murder by Numbers, you’ll be in familiar territory, and it combines excellent presentation with easy interactions and loads of puzzles.




56:34 - The story of the old man.




All that, and the location of a book, with Kris (@DigitalStrider), Peter (@XeroXeroXero), and Sam (@MrSamTurner).




Our Spotify Playlist brings together lots of great thematic music inspired by the stuff we talk about. Go check it out. You might like it.
