Sam Harkin, of Vivid Geekcast and Super Hype Train, joins Trevor in this unprecedented second guest hosted episode in a row. He brings a real fun energy and they come up with a VR Croquet simulator with a horror edge, a Stardew Valley rip off and a VR Hibachi chef simulator.
Trevor welcomes Pete Curulli of Game On Australia fame back to play some more Click Pitch. They get a little silly with ideas such as a Hijacker with a heart of gold, a musical theatre game with quicktime mechanics, pooping zebras and a Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds inspired office scavenger game. All this and more.
While Ben is in Canada we have a number of smaller episodes entitled “Bit Drizzle” ready for your listening pleasure. In this episode Ben and Trevor discuss a game featuring Twinder, sentient candy and they return to the world of anthropomorphic root vegetables that still don’t like their leafy cousins.
While Ben’s away Trevor will play… Click Pitch… with guest hosts. Trevor welcomes Andrew Natoli (@Kalgar) and Paul Cunningham (@ThundermaceAus) from the Inconsolables podcast to riff on crazy ideas involving the celestial dance of the moon and the sun, hunting humans, wrestling in wine cellars and a
rip off of homage to Super Meat Boy called Super Corn Boy.
While Ben is in Canada we have a number of smaller episodes entitled “Bit Drizzle” ready for your listening pleasure. In this episode the boys talk about sentient baked goods, try to take down the fraternity system and tell a lovely story about a grandma and her grand-daughter.
In their last episode before Ben heads off to Canada leaving Trevor to fend for himself for 6 weeks, the boys come up with some interesting mechanics involving a second-person action/adventure game, losing time instead of health, picking procedurally generated people out of a police lineup and finding the best way to spend one million bucks. Plus some Doctor Who thing, I don’t know.

Multiplayer backstabbing while diverting asteroids, skeleton jigsaw puzzles, avoiding the flu and images burning into your brain like an old CRT – just a few of the game mechanics in this week’s episode. Join Ben and Trevor as they Click Pitch the night away!
The Atari 2600 game ET, ducks pulling off bank heists, Stephen King’s The Dark Tower series, kiwis (the bird, not the fruit), the Dewey Decimal System and far too many secret agents; these are just a few of the ideas tackled in this week’s crop of Click Pitch games by Trevor and Ben. If you’ve ever wanted a period piece about the great video game crash of the 80s, (and really, who hasn’t thought about that at least once in their lives?), this is the episode for you!
