Indie Game Review: Newgrounds’ The Room Tribute (2010) – Collateral Gaming x Collateral Cinema Holiday Special
Designer: Tom Fulp (programmer)
Release date: September 3, 2010
SHOWNOTES: Oh hai, Collateral Gaming (and Collateral Cinema) listeners, and Happy Holidays! This Christmas Day, we collaborate with our co-hosts from Collateral Cinema Movie Podcast to bring you the gift of Tommy Wiseau's The Room—or at least Newgrounds' retro-style flash game adaptation of it! We discuss how this game exists as a love letter to the film and the fandom, the interesting point-and-click adventure gameplay, the use of protagonist Johnny's perspective exclusively, and the various sidequests and Easter eggs that expand the universe of The Room! Have a happy season, whatever you celebrate, and stay tuned for Collateral Gaming's and Collateral Cinema's content in the New Year!
Collateral Gaming and Collateral Cinema are on Apple Podcasts, Chill Lover Radio, and wherever else you get your podcasts. Also, find us on Patreon, where you'll be able to find exclusive commentaries on our favorite games and movies!
