VACA MINIPOD: What's In A Bad Game?

To tide everyone over until our next full episode on Aug. 30, we have two special mini episodes lined up this week and next. The topic this time: Bad games that we won't subject each other to for the sake of podcasting.

Dana and Cody sail the drained seas with Okomotive's delightful first game, FAR: Lone Sails.
