Random Encounter 284 – Merry Game Awards!

Random Encounter 284 Merry Game Awards - Little Goody Two Shoes and In Stars and Time with Geoff Keighley and Hideo Kojima's heads

On this episode of Random Encounter, we chat all of the news from the 2024 Game Awards, and delve into two recent indie RPGs.

First, The Game Awards came and went faster than the music playing off the winners! Baldur’s Gate 3 was the champion of the evening with Best Game, but Alan Wake 2 walked away with a good share of the awards, as well. Join the panel as we gossip about the absolute boatload of game announcements that we can expect in 2024 and 2025 (and, if we’re being really honest, probably 2026 and beyond)!

Then, Abe walks us through the dark, foreboding woods to chat about Little Goody Two Shoes, an indie horror RPG with life-sim, dating-sim, arcade, and roguelike elements. Is this fairytale-inspired game a “Grimm” experience, or does it deliver a happy ending? Then, Izzy dives into the timestream with the time-looping indie RPG, In Stars and Time. Do the game get tiresome, or do they want to replay it again and again?

Featuring: Jono Logan, Abraham Kobylanski, and Izzy Parsons; Edited by Jono Logan
