Abnormal Mapping 20: Scatter My Ashes on the Erstwhile Chair

minecraft chicken

This final Abnormal Mapping of 2014 begins with a bit of introspection, as the Mappers go over the year that is quickly fading behind them, and look forward to the year to come. Then, joined by oft-guesting Destiny, they explore the endless realms of Minecraft, doing their best to stave off the expected and inevitable slide into existential terror as they look to the horizon and ponder just how many blocks one has to dig up to be alive. Join us on this, the Eve of the Year of the PS3, as we head towards the future, hearts heavy but heads held high.

Let’s Play: Broken Age

Vella sleeps outside under a tree by the shore, Shay sleeps in a bed in his very own spaceship, and both have only one thing in common: neither wish to wake up.

Welcome, to this Let’s Play of Double Fine’s point and click adventure: Broken Age.
