Podcasts Take A Holiday!

Posted by on June 1st, 2021

We did something different this week! Andrew, Justin, and Brian got together in Demeo, a co-op VR tabletop RPG. Spells and tempers flare in this group videogame. See the entire stream here in video:

In Demeo, each player picks a class and they work together to overcome procedurally-generated dungeons, challenging enemies, and the siren song of gold. This is best experienced in video as the guys had played together before and don’t spend much time narrating the action. Enjoy your Memorial Day and we’ll see you with a new episode of Weird Things next week. (Video may contain a couple moments of spicy language).
