Michael Chu of Sydney’s Shadowplay Studios joined us to discuss his upcoming game Projection, being selected for the PAX Australia Indie Showcase, and rebuilding from scratch. Diving into a world of shadow play and adventure, Projection is game in which you control light to enable new platforms of discover, exploration and puzzle solving all whilst experiencing and controlling historically rooted shadow puppetry.

 

We also covered a much talked about topic this week and took a look at our own gaming skills as journalists. The l33t skill of journalists was called into question this month when a video was released of GamesBeat’s lead writer Dean Takahashi fumbling his way through the yet to be released Cuphead. We ask, should game journalists be good at video games? Should anyone be good at video games? What is good? What are games?
