Episode 513: Tiptoe Away from His Flailing Proboscis

September 9th, 2022 | Robin

The Gaming Hut exists in all dimensions as beloved Patreon backer Jacob Boersma asks how to giving Evelyn Wang’s multiversal powers from Everything Everywhere All at Once to player characters.

In Ken and/or Robin Talk to Someone Else, Ken talks to Cody Swendrowski, developer for the Foundry virtual tabletop platform, who tells how its community focus distinguishes it from its competitors, and of his forays into streaming and podcasting.

Discerning backer Eric (Speaker in Digressions) buys a ticket to the Horror Hut to ask how to apply the cool conceit of Prey to other horror franchises.

Finally, classical backer Fridrik Bjarnason wants to know why Ken’s Time Machine was used to erase historical records of a Roman city recently unearthed in Zaragoza, Spain.

    Tremors in the Old West was in fact so obvious an idea that they actually made that movie almost 20 years ago: Tremors 4: The Legend Begins (2004) was a prequel set in 1889. No connection to the Gunfight at the OK corral, though.

    Predatory could be the origin of the flintlock that the Predators give Danny Glover’s character at the end of Predator 2.
