Episode 437: Your Chartreuse Leotard

March 19th, 2021 | Robin

Pick up that flashlight and head down into the basement as the Gaming Hut looks at building moments that take advantage of a single protagonist for one-player games like GUMSHOE One-2-One.

The History Hut returns to the wild streets of Ken’s signature city as beloved Patreon backer Neal Dalton seeks the story of Count Dante and the Chicago Dojo Wars.

Our Cinema Hut Horror Essentials series hits the 90s. Will we get far enough into them for Japan to save horror? (Note: this episode was recorded prior to the public revelation of director Richard Stanley’s history of domestic abuse.)

Finally, regal Patreon backer Daniel Gill enlists Ken’s Time Machine to find out how to extend the English Angevin King’s control over Normandy.

    I realize this is something of a nitpick, but the real life case where a murderer came “out of the mirror” (from the adjoining apartment through a gap in the wall covered by the medicine cabinet), which might have been an inspiration for “Candyman”, occurred in the Grace Abbot Homes section of the “ABLA” housing projects, not the more notorious Cabrini-Green project, as Ken claimed. Which is somewhat ironic, given that the Chicago Reader piece that first brought the case to prominence makes the point that the Cabrini-Green projects were more notorious and got more media coverage, but the ABLA Homes projects were actually more dangerous.

    What game could one play to have something like the adventures of Benvento Cellini, goldsmith, sculptor, draftsman, soldier, musician?
