Episode 34 – Golden Gnomes

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-pgut7-bbf9d7

Iain has been trying to bring the Brainwaves garden under control but much to his annoyance has found the place overrun by wrestling Gnomes. Laying the blame squarely at the feet of Robbie Munn, Robbie joins Iain and Jamie on the cast as penance for his out of control Sumo Gnomes. We cover more awards, Golden Bell/ Unbroken Kickstarter, hirings, mergers and lawsuits. In Brainstorm we tackle the weighty issue of problematic themes in games.
