New York City has been ravaged by a deadly strain of influenza spread via cold hard cash. Now it’s up to Paul and Kris to restore order in a city laid low by the Dollar Flu, in the excellent Tom Clancy’s The Division. We discuss what we love about the game — and veer into a related discussion of being fortunate enough to enjoy something that feels too real, too possible, and politically charged.
Plus, a joke about skateboarding on someone’s dick. All the dizzying intellectual highs and lows you’ve come to expect from 28 Plays Later!
Creator Ron Gilbert (Maniac Mansion, The Secret of Monkey Island) joins Paul and Kris for an extended talk about his forthcoming game Thimbleweed Park, while Paul asks a series of questions based on his lust for skeletal pirates and salesmen in loud sport coats. Also discussed: the difficulty of making a podcast, small talk woes, and a pitch for a new game Loot Accountant!

Have mercy! Kris and Paul dive into Netflix’s Fuller House by mistake, then hesitantly back away for a discussion of the unique FPS puzzler SUPERHOT, now available on Steam. Plus, Kris looks at a listener-recommended horror game, Anatomy from developer Kitty Horrorshow. And Paul brags about our World of Warcraft guild on Blackrock!
