The Gaming Outsider Podcast – Episode 069: Unmechanical Discussion

It’s Friday and we have a special community edition of The Gaming Outsider podcast available right now. In this episode we welcome Joseph Grim to the show to discuss a little title that he inspired all of us at The Gaming Outsider to play called Unmechanical from Teotl Studios. The game has been around awhile on PC and iOS but has recently received an extended edition that can be found on Playstation 3, Playstation 4, Xbox One and soon to the PS Vita. Scott and Joseph discuss the game’s mechanics, the great soundtrack and the interesting bundle the game can be found in on the Xbox One platform.  Listen to the show to find out if Scott and Joseph recommend this small puzzle game. Grab the episode now on the podcast platform of your choice (iTunes, Stitcher and TuneIn) or use the media player below to start the show right now. We hope you enjoy it!
