One More Go Game Club - Tomba! (PSX)
While we at the One More Go podcast obviously love being able to tell you guys about the multitude of great past games you may have missed, nothing compares to hearing from listeners who were then inspired to experience the game for themselves, and then share their perspective on all that vidya joy. We wanted to find a way to extend that joy, and to share it as widely as possible. With that aim, we came up with Game Club.
Every second month, we’ll announce a game we want everyone to play, as well as a Twitter hashtag so you can share your thoughts on the game whilst playing it. The point is that we want Game Club to be a conversation, not just another story that we tell after the play is finished. For every game, you’ll be able to click the hashtag, see what everyone else is saying about the game and throw in your tuppence worth. Then in the net episode of the podcast, we’ll collate everyone’s observations and find out how the hivemind reacted to the fun.
Sound good? If you want to join in, this month we’re playing Tomba!, a 1997 platform/adventure game for the PlayStation. You can buy the game for £6.49 on PSN and play on your PS3 or Vita, or emulate it if that’s what you’re into.
As you play, if anything strikes as funny or cool, or sparks a memory from playing the game before or reminds you of a great joke about mangos or whatever, write a tweet and add #OMGClub1 at the end. Click that link to see what others are saying and lets explore this crazy world of fruit, evil pigs and loose-fitting shorts together.
