BGB Podcast #137 – Past Its Prime

All good things must come to an end.

Some games are built to last, and no, we’re not just talking about the … R-word. For others, the high highs of early games must give way to the dawning realization that all is not well. We look at reasons we might end up moving past games we once held in high regard. Before we overstay our welcome, we talk about Sandstone, Ctrl, The Fox in the Forest Duet, and Unmatched.
