This week Jack is back with another solo episode about the Obsidian Entertainment RPG Tyranny! We delve into what makes Tyranny such a risk in the RPG space and how it embraced allowing players to be evil by denying players an optimal  "good" path.

In 2014, a small band of misfit developers who had previously worked on the game Bulletstorm released an indie game like nothing anyone had seen before. The Vanishing of Ethan Carter takes players on a journey through mystery, murder, and death with a startling amount of nuance and imagination. Join Daniel (@indiejones84) and Jack as they delve into this treat of a game!

This messy and short episode is an adequate tribute to the messy and short experiment that was Lost Planet: Extreme Condition on the Xbox 360. The game follows Wayne, a man frozen solid for 30 years as he wakes up and becomes an ice pirate and fights giant robots and monsters. The gameplay is amazing and the story is terrible. A classic Capcom game for the ages!
