This Week On…

Mysterious, Mystery Zone, Mystery Kevin

Matt: Hello! I’m crawling my way out of the Covid mines and am Technically Ready™ to do stuff again! This week on the website we’ve got another collection tour video. Ooh, very exciting! I’d offer further details, but I’m enjoying the mystery of it all too much. Will it be a collection of board games, or hedges, or eggs? Who will be the owner of the collection? Will it be Mystery Kevin, from Mystransylvania?

The mysteries continue: We’ve also got, potentially, another Tunic stream with Tom this week – You can watch the last bits as VODs on Twitch: give the channel a follow if you want to be notified if and when he’s logging on for more chill times.

Finally, Friday’s podcast features Memoir 44: New Flight Plan, Illumination and possibly more?! Who can truly know what lies within the heart of pod?

I must depart the mystery zone now, as there are too many mysteries and I am getting scared. What are you getting up to this week, and how scared are you about that on a scale of 1 to 10?

Have a great weekend, everybody!

The Quadruple Game Special!

Trembling Trees, Gross Gators, Mouldy Machines, Pints 'n Pals

In this week’s video, Tom is firing you through several different games at high speed like a dolphin-shaped bullet with a penchant for perusin’.

It’s a roundup! Science said it wasn’t possible, and yet here it is – four (technically six) games stuffed into one short video. We’re getting to grips with gears in Corrosion and understanding udders in Great Western Trail: 2nd Edition! We’re rooting around in the bushes for berries and beasts in Rustling Leaves! And we’re Moving Pictures, Roving… Rove… and… Death(ing) Valley(ing) with some… wacky… wallet…(w)experiences? I lost all my energy by the end there, I’m sorry. Enjoy!

This Week On Shut Up & Sit Down…

i'm here now, paella punishment, it's time for some freakin art in here

Tom: Hello! It’s really me this time, not just a disembodied announcement of my own name. I’m really trying my best, I promise!

We’ve got a nice little week lined up for you! On Wednesday, you can enjoy a video review where I’m going to talk about a little collection of different games that are not at all related. It’s a review roundup! Recorded in slightly slapdash style, I’m hoping it’ll provide a looser alternative to our more robustly structured videos. I finally get to talk about a game that I’ve wanted to sing the praises of for ages! Wahoo! That’ll be Wednesday; or Thursday if the paella I just ate starts to really disagree with me.

Then, on Friday, Ava and I are chatting about Museum: Pictura and Art Decko in our artists special! Enjoy some general nattering about two games we think are just fine, alongside a quick dollop of general art-in-games conjecture! It was a fun one to record and hopefully you’ll treat your ears to our nonsense.

I might also squeak in a little stream this week, if the video is done on time. A casual ramble through some Tunic – because I played a little and found it simply delightful. That’ll happen as and when I work out how to do streams again. That’s all from us this week! What have you been up to, everybody?

Podcast #174 – The Lazy Sundaycast

Big Bribes are the Best, Get Jade All The Time, Luckily No Lizard Voice, A Twist Ending

In this sluggish episode of the Shut Up & Sit Down Podcast, Tom and Quinns are fresh off the back of two games – one a box of unison and joy; the other a lump of conflict and discontent. We’re talking about Gugong and it’s expansion – Panjun – as well as Lizard Wizard! But which is the belle of the ball, and which is the slob of the swamp? Find out… right here!

Have a lovely weekend, folks!

Review: Long Shot: The Dice Game

Quickly, grease your horses! Laminate your betting slips! Remove the jockeys from the steam cupboard!Look, if we’re totally honest, team Shut Up & Sit Down doesn’t know the first thing about horse racing.

Fortunately, you don’t have to know the first thing about it to enjoy Long Shot: The Dice Game, which is now up there with our favourite ever roll’n’writes. This game is pretty, it’s silly, and it’s embarrassingly exciting.

This Week On Shut Up & Sit Down…

Mystery Week, TruckTech, Gugoku or Bigong?

Tom: Hello humans! It’s another week on Shut Up & Sit Down dot com, the internet’s website! Join us for… whatever it is we do this week…

….What are we doing this week? We’re not entirely sure. Matt’s busy moving large amounts of technology in a big truck, Ava is stranded in a no-internet wasteland, and Quinns and I are figuring out what to do with ourselves.

Review: Songbirds

Ava has been a key part of the Shut Up & Sit Down podcast for quite a while now, but today is the first time you’ll have seen her in HER VERY OWN VIDEO about Songbirds!

Very exciting stuff, and a lovely continuation of the story arc for those of you who remember the days in which Ava was simply someone popping up in the website comments below. Give her a hearty round of applause, and stay away from any suspicious-looking birds.
