Highbrow, Middle Brow, and Lowbrow in Free-to-Play Gaming

by G. Christopher Williams

26 September 2016

From the charmingly trashy to the more artistically inclined, there is a wide variety of gaming options in the free-to-play market.
The Lion's Song (Mi'pu'mi Games, 2016) 

As is our habit on the podcast, we occasionally like to sample what is going on in the free-to-play gaming.

This week we discuss three games available on Steam, A Date in the Park, Mandagon, and The Lion’s Songs as examples of lowbrow, middle brow, and high brow offerings within the free-to-play market.
