Currently, the game is still in Alpha stage of production so much of it is still in incomplete, missing, or otherwise unfinished. Even so, what I saw left me highly impressed.

New Indie Outlook, Tech-Gaming Podcast 14-1: Ring Rust - Indie banter and game impressions of Terrorhedron, Mega Coin Squad and Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake. Don’t miss out on the podcast giveaway until September 22nd.

TG Score: 82% - Good.

In this podcast, Eric joins the boys of Summer, Robert becomes one of Destiny’s Children, Jeremy lets loose with a pent-up pile of game impressions, and Sage transforms Transistor impressions into an onslaught of innuendo. Beyond discussions of Terrorhedron, Mega Coin Squad, and Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake on IndieOutlook, we also take time out for gaming trivia as well as answer listener mail.
To celebrate The Tech-Gaming Podcast’s return from Summer hiatus, we’re also giving away some games!

And in the interest of helping Jeremy overcome his aversion to all things wonderful, don’t forget to name a few of your favorite anime titles, so we can begin to battle his stubbornness before it’s too late.
