BGB Podcast #136 – H-h-h-hot Hot Hot

Drink plenty of water. Just some good advice.

Hot days call for hot questions! To counter the California heat wave, we get breezy with a round of hot questions. We take a long hard look at games we love, but don’t play, and give our takes on the theme to end all themes. Before we get heated, we talk about Ctrl, New York Zoo, and Renature.

Thanks to Guanye for sending us the Jixia Academy pronunciation clip.

Check out our live plays of New York Zoo and Renature for Camp Capstone!
