ETAO Podcast, Episode 103.


Chris King of Batterystaple Games shares a chunk of his time to discuss 30XX, the reimagined, souped-up sequel to the Mega Man X-esque roguelike-alike 20XX.

We get pretty far into the weeds as far as the differences between the two games, the double-edged beam-sword of encouraging player-created content from day one, the advantages and disadvantages of working with an engine built from scratch, and why roguelike design patterns are likely here to stay.
A still from the animated trailer to 30XX, with Ace brandishing a beam-sword in the foreground for defend Nina, who looks on from the background. The stones and gravel and grass of the Burning Temple surround them, with a single lantern glowing eerie blue.
You can get 30XX on Steam.
You can get the soundtrack on Steam and Bandcamp.
