It's been a while since I had a musician on, so it's time to fix that. Joining me today is Carmine from the YouTube channel Game & Sound. Game & Sound is a YouTube channel that features covers of video game music using guitar in various styles. I have been enjoying Carmine's work for years so I figured it was about time I would have him on! We talk about his influences are, what types of genres of music he likes, what are some of his favorite games and much more! He also shouts out of some Italian prog rock artists and songs which are linked below along with his channel and a link to his upcoming video! Go check it all out!

Celeste is a platformer that I think is a prime example of how games can, and should, be considered art. I'm joined by friend of the show Ryan Kern to discuss the iconic indie platformer Celeste developed by Maddy Makes Games. We talk a lot about the game's themes and how those theme's were reflected in the game's creator's personal journey. Celeste is worth trying, even if you don't like 2D platformers. Check out the episode to find out why.

About a year ago I was joined by Rockman Cosmo and Naoya Shinota to discuss their efforts in preserving Japanese feature phone games. Since so much time had passed I wanted to bring them back on the show to talk about how their efforts are going, the progress they made in a year and what their goals going forward are.

I had a wonderful time catching up with them and I can't thank them enough for setting aside more of their time to share what's been going on in their corner of the preservation community.
