We’ve talked about playing games in the bathroom, but what about controlling a game with a part of one’s anatomy? Yes, these are brave and wild times in which this will soon be possible for those who backed a certain IndieGoGo campaign.
Besides vaginas, this episode sees us dive into the 2017 gaming season with some featured games we didn’t hate! In fact, we liked pretty much everything we played this week, even though we just used our hands to do it (how boring!).
We also talk about some wacky news, like Iran freaking out about Clash of Clans (and not because it has $100 IAPs!), predictably underwhelming mobile category award nominees, and more.
Finally, what does 2017 have in store for mobile games? We ponder one recent take and talk about things we’d like to see change in on the platform in the coming year, especially given some recent data.
