Hey look, this episode is posting on the day it's supposed to be posted! Wow. This episode is about Greg Troutman's games Dark Mage and This Planet Sucks, both early examples of homebrew games. Next week I'll be focusing on Donkey Kong Jr., Looping, Pepper II and Rocky Battles The Champ, all by Coleco. Or some of them are, the last two were never released. Please send any feedback on these or any games I've covered to 2600gamebygame@comcast.net. Thank you all very much!

P.S. - Snow is dumb.
