The Action Points Podcast! Episode 58: A Rush of Rabbits to the Head with Kevin Chen

In this episode:

Go play Rabbit Rush. Just go. Once you’re done, come back and listen to us chat with the designer, Kevin Chen. We talk about the game, the definition of games, games as art, anime, visual novels, urban fantasy and I manage to cram in references to Brothers (DRINK) while Evan talks about Mother 3 once again (DRINK EVERYTHING). Also, sorry about my sound quality at the early part of the episode, totally my fault.
