What happens in this episode?
This episode was recorded live on 30th July 2020.
This episode’s guests include Adam Campbell, co-founder of POC in Play and Director of Product for Azoomee kids, podcaster Hugh K. David and fellow Bunkazilla contributor Lizzie Barnes. As always, each guest brings a pop or geek culture themed topic to dissect and discuss.
Lizzie begins the discussions for the episode pondering if the recent trend of video game remakes and remasters are really essential? Are they killing off new franchises before they can get started? What are gamers getting for their money with these nostalgia trips?
Adam’s topic focuses on art and graphic fidelity in video games and how they actually help each other – especially in light of recent game demonstrations like Halo: Infinite and next-gen games with simplistic graphics.
Finally, Hugh asks if crowdfunding and direct sales completely replace advertising for geek products? With indie and corporate creators showing they can run a very lean business with platforms like Kickstarter, how much reliance on advertising is there?
