Are you a game designer or publisher with a new game launching soon? Reach a wider audience and show what your game is all about with a Let’s Play with The Critshow!
When you work with us to promote your game, we’ll do a small on-air interview with whomever is running the game (usually one of the creators) and then create characters, play through a session, and do end of session, all bookended by original music written by our in-house musician Jake Pierle. We edit the audio down into (usually 3-4) episodes of 45-60 minutes each, send you the finished audio files to post, and then release them on our RSS feed on an agreed-upon date.
Prices are flexible based on the means of the creator/designer/publisher. If you’re interested in discussing your game, send us a message through our contact form!

A space-themed survival horror PbtA by S.M.

The Legion is in retreat following a failed battle against the armies of the undead. You are a member of the Legion, your bonds to one another forged in the dark by bone and blood.

Band of Blades, by Stras Acimovic and John LeBoeuf-Little, is available from Evil Hat Games.

Thousand Arrows, by Brennan Taylor and James Mendez Hodes and published by Galileo Games, is a tabletop role-playing game about the Japanese Warring States Period. Ruthless warlords’ unchecked ambition has transformed the Land of the Rising Sun into a hell of gunfire and betrayal.
