Don’t Cross the Stream: Diner Scenes

We’re trying something a bit different for this episode. Instead of focusing on one movie or show, we are talking about a type of scene in many movies and shows: the diner scene. I got the idea from watching Midnight Diner: Tokyo Stories on Netflix. Bridget, Fae, Thad, Kat, and I discuss how we can take this scene and create an interesting storytelling game about it.

Check out Cry by Bridget and Fae!

Don’t Cross the Stream: Infini

Sci-fi films can be about big ideas, but sometimes that isn’t enough. Infini tries to be about some big ideas but the execution leaves much to be desired. Bridget, Caleb, Fae, Thad, and I discuss the movie and our ideas for mining gaming fodder out of it. Things like random tables for doing stupid things in space, to mini games about pretending to be human even when you’re secretly a goo alien!

Don’t Cross the Stream: Chronicles of the Ghostly Tribe

Chronicles of the Ghostly Tribe is a weird movie. It is ostensibly a Chinese summer blockbuster sci-fi action movie, but it’s more like 3 or 4 movies in one. There’s aliens, kaiju, the Chinese Red Army’s secret archeological unit, an Elvis impersonator who sings about Genghis Khan, dramatic shifts in tone, and undead werewolves (I think).

Bridget, Caleb, Fae, Thad, and I all watched the movie and analyzed it for the show. We also figure out how to turn this mess into a playable game. Up next is a playable mini-game by Bridget!
