Retweeted by Jane McGonigal @kennyroy @IndieMEGABOOTH that's awesome!! what's the game? (I'm not at GDC this year but would love to know more about the game)I am so excited about this movie I can't even say :D https://t.co/QK4kAZ9KcD @amdietrich what does that mean?!??interested in booking me for a talk or day of consulting in Europe? ping me if dates April 8-11 would work, my airfare is already covered! @megging the second episode is good, just watch that one and ignore the finale. @megging you will find more than one review that compares it to the torture porn horror franchise Saw. I am so freaking mad at them! @megging no it's legitimately terrible. google reviews of the finale. It's so bad I feel abused by the creators. I'm not kidding.
