This week we sit down and talk with the heads of PM Studios, publisher of great music games like Cytus Alpha, Deemo, the DJMAX series, and other great titles like Mercenaries Saga Chronicles and the upcoming Horizon Chase Turbo! We talk about their love of games and music, how they got started in the industry, and who has the most platinum trophies on the PlayStation Network!
The theme this week is music and games focused around a single word! Well, since there are 2 hosts it’s really 2 words. But then they talk for way too long during the intro of the show and that’s many more words! Also, stay tuned in through the episode for a fun word-puzzle game that drives Pernell insane!
