We welcome MidBoss founder and game designer Matt Conn to chat about his game 2064: Read Only Memories, LGBTQ representation in games, and more!
The world can be a scary place either in real life or Neo-San Francisco. Luckily MidBoss head honcho Matt Conn is here to help quell our fears. Matt joins us to discuss his Snatcher-influenced adventure title 2064: Read Only Memories, his gay-friendly event GaymerX, and how the LGBTQ community has united through their love of gaming. We all may know a thing or two about that!
