I decided to do a bit of livestreaming of the Alpha 2 release of Sauropod Games' Castle Story, mainly to be able to say "I dood it," but also because it occurred to me that it made far more sense if Castle Story were happening in an alternate Appalachia instead of the implicit alternate Euro-fantasy, and I had exactly the right background music for that!
- The Pine Box Boys
Because murder ballads and sexually ambiguous creatures-formed-from-crystal-and-clay are ideas that belong together in front of us! Murder ballads!
- Bourbon Crow
From murder ballads to what Joe Poole does when he's not tearing shit up with Wednesday 13. Imagine country music made by someone who thinks Marilyn Manson is kind of a poncy poseur. Yeah. Perfect for building castles in pine forests to!
I seriously dig Castle Story. I can't wait for it to move forward enough to be the multiplayer RTS Minecraft it promises. I'm such a god-complex geek.
