Episode 11 – Cuphead, Twitch, Ron Perlman

cuphead podcastWith the release of Cuphead, a discussion has started about the the difficulties of games. Should developers design their game with ways to skip bosses or reduce the difficulty? Is it wrong to create a video game that is too hard for many people to complete? The HYVG jumps into the discussion, and unanimously agree that there should be games of all difficulty. Why should developers change their game to please the masses?

We had a lot of fun creating this episode, and hope you’ll enjoy it!
