  1. Hi all, so today I bring you a game series that's probably as unique as it gets: Hylics (no relation to the gnostic concept, kinda) The first game was launched in the year 2015, as an RPGMaker game, but with a twist... All the scenery, the npcs, even the moves, are animated using claymation and stopmotion, often compared to the Neverhood because of the claymation, Hylics is a little more esoteric and abstract than the Neverhood. In a world where dynamite detonates with the force of an atomic bomb, snapping your fingers can reduce your enemies to bones, and the scenery and characters are as malleable as the clay they're made out of, Hylics 1 is a truly amazing and surreal game. The soundtrack is also amazing, I cant really describe it except as a "very pleasant synthetic cacophony" The atmosphere, the gameplay, the music, everything feels otherworldly. A downside to the game is that the npc dialogue is randomly generated, it's quite polarizing, for some people it either adds to the charm or detracts from the game, it's more of a personal issue though. Recently (and by recently I mean like a few hours ago) the second game just released, after being 5 years in the making, Hylics 2 is finally here! Made in unity instead of RPGMaker, Hylics 2 seems like a direct upgrade from the first game, quadruple the lenght, gameplay and story, its basically the perfect game sequel here are the links to both games https://store.steampowered.com/app/1286710/Hylics_2/ https://store.steampowered.com/app/397740/Hylics/ they're also available on itch.io
  2. Talking about RPGmaker games, I would love if Ross covered Hylics, amazing game, and one of the few games made using claymation out there (alongside The Neverhood and Dujanah), the game has the right amount of nonsense, weirdness and fun, it would be quite the opportune time to cover it since the beta for the second game is out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XMC_69eJdw4 Although an episode of Game Dungeon covering various RPGMaker games like Space Funeral and Yume Nikki would be great too
  3. Doom 2016 for the first time Really good, the only thing i didn't like was that it was too short, I thought that after Argent D'Nur there would be a couple more levels but alas. Now let's see how Eternal compares to it
