The final episode is upon us and we’ve saved the best till last. Joel Goodwin of Electron Dance and I loved Witchball, ‘a post-reality racing game played by children in the year 2601’. Yeah. It’s very much doing its own thing which is exactly why it surprised us both so much.
It’s been a busy and stressful week so I’m a bit late with this episode of Side by Side. If only I could have got another version of myself to post this on Wednesday!
Well that’s sort of the idea behind Chronobot, a free 1v1 competitive local multiplayer game where each player co-operates (hah!) with previous timelines of themselves to jockey with the other for different objectives. Joel Goodwin of Electron Dance and I were pleasantly surprised, and confused, by this one.
There’s been a lot of balls this season. First, the not-so regular Regular Human Basketball, followed a little later by the zany Anyball, and now we’re on to our third (but not final): Waynetron’s Birdsketball, which is undoubtedly the most straight forward of the lot. Joel Goodwin of Electron Dance and I adored this which translated to one of our favourite episodes of the season.
My momma always said “itch.io is like a box of chocolates: you never know what you’re gonna get”. She wasn’t wrong, but thanks to some handy search tools it’s easy to get some real treats. This week’s treat is Totemori, a local multiplayer… uh, tot’em up? Tot’em up. Yeah, that sort of works.
Joel Goodwin of Electron Dance and I see whether it all stacks up.
We’re back and this time we’re actually on a couch side by side. It’s only taken four seasons. I even got some pictures hung up on my back wall.
