This week, the whole cast minus Drew joins to discuss the Green Knight RPG. Important questions like where it came from, Why Drew is Eldor in real life, and more will be answered. Wayne regales us with how the show came to be, how big PRGs are becoming and we go on a tangent about the upcoming Avatar TTRPG.

    Pagan mentioned the Game Grumps when it comes to “two dudes playing games on a couch” which draws an interesting parallel.

    Many years ago, animators on YouTube were resplendent; the front page was covered in short, silly cartoons to watch. When the algorithm changed, though, that form of content died out. The time, energy, and money it took to make an animation that *might* find an audience was an almost impossible endeavor. The only way these artists could find an outlet—and payment—for their work were larger content creators like Markiplier, Jacksepticeye, and the Game Grumps.

    In time, Game Grumps grew beyond just “two dudes sitting on a couch playing games” to a platform for creatives to express themselves. We’ve seen un with Dream Daddy, Starbomb, and the Game Grumps Animated series. They bridged the gap between their audience and the talented folks that just needed a chance to prove themselves.

    It seems like CouchSoup is offering that same opportunity, but on steroids. Forget a 20-90 sec. animated short; if you have what it takes, you can kickstart an entire show with 250,000 sets of eyes watching. Not to mention the industry expertise, critique, and connections that cone with the crew behind CouchSoup; good luck finding *that* combination elsewhere.

    Kay, done rambling. Gonna black out now.
