Hey hey! On today’s (very short) episode of SOCMOM & Friends I talk about a couple of the demo programs with which I am involved, specifically the AEG Vanguard and Double Exposure Envoy demo programs. We’re a little under the weather here at Trager House, so Nic did not join me on this episode and I kept it pretty short. On an unrelated note – we’re announcing a schedule change! On Wednesdays I have several weekly reports due at work and its become my busiest weekday, so we’re going to alter our release schedule a bit and we’ll now release new episodes of SOCMOM & Friends on Thursdays. I had initially wanted to give listeners something to look forward to mid-week, but this works out a little better for me and I hope it will for you as well. I hope you enjoy today’s episode!
Happy Wednesday! The topic of today’s episode of SOCMOM & Friends is our (current) top 10 favorite games ever! Take a listen and tell us what games you love.
Hey hey. Sarah with Blue Ox Games here. I’m so excited to announce that I will be running demos at Games Meet Art, a special event co-hosted by Blue Ox Games and the Greenville Museum of Art! Check out my Schedule of Appearances for more info. Hope to see you there!
