Listeners - we say this with all sincerity. Times are hard right now and we are all in this together. We’re bringing you this episode on Isolation in the hopes that it brings you some amount of levity and humor in the face of something that, we feel, none of us know how to address or even fully comprehend. We know this little gaming podcast can’t do much but we’re going to do all that we can. Please stay safe and know that you are not alone.

Games discussed include No Man’s Sky, Alto’s Odyssey, Cosmochoria, and Minecraft
