Daft Souls S2E5: Sekiro, Hormones & Hypnospace (contains swears)

Matt, Keza, and Brattmaster5000 reform for another suitably relaxed chat about 1990's personal computers, iffy political shrugging in games, hormonal shifts and their impact on play, and a veritable buffet of other random bollocks. This episode is a lot swearier than usual, because we all forgot that we usually don't do it. Sorry! Thanks!

Daft Souls S2E4: The 2019 Januaramble

Matt sits down with Bratt and Keza for the first time in a couple of months, and they all treat themselves to a meandering chat. Featuring actual conversations about Donkey Kong 64 - weirdly - alongside recommendations for Twinfold and Pikuniku. Thank you for listening, we’ll be back soon.

Daft Souls: Season 2

Hello! After a short break, the podcast is back. A few changes: the podcast will be monthly, and is now co-hosted by Keza and Bratt - this means it isn't just a Cool Ghosts podcast anymore, it's a collaboration from all three of us, and you can expect the shape and format of the podcast to reflect that in the future.

For now though, there is no format or shape - it's basically just the three of us rambling for an hour. Until next time!

Daft Souls 92: The Signal From Tölva, Stories Untold, Jill of the Jungle

We briefly follow up about Stories Untold, jump into The Signal From Tölva, touch on The Sexy Brutale (which we'll revisit) and cap off this episode of the podcast with a chat about Jill of the Jungle and the delights of Shareware gaming. Thanks for listening!

COOL REMINDER: If you want to hang out and chat with lovely like-minded folk, do pop along and check out the Cool Ghosts Discord Channel.

Daft Souls 91: Nier Automata, It Came From The Desert

We have to tell you about ROBOTS, and also GIANT ANTS ARE COMING TO KILL US ALL YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE US PLEASE. Also: Thanks for listening! We should have 5 questions with a developer for next time - it turns out it's quite hard to wrangle human voices into the correct place at the correct time. Be sure to pop back later this week for our video of us playing It Came From The Desert.

And heck, while you're here - reviews on iTunes are ALWAYS awesome. You look lovely today as well, did we mention that? It's something about your hair. Sort of floofy? Or maybe sleek? Whichever of the two you were going for, your call.

Daft Souls Animated: "Regressive Ash"

Hello hello! A little treat this week - the talented James Wragg has animated a brief section of Daft Souls, and will hopefully be doing more sporadically in the future! Enjoy - and if you've any suggestions for favourite bits you'd like to see animated, do let us know.

Daft Souls 88: Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun, Gravity Rush 2, Nels Anderson


Daft Souls returns for 2017, with some shiny new features! We haven't re-invented the horse, but we've tried to mix things up: each episode will now feature one game developer answering five questions we've carefully chosen. First up is Nels Anderson, lead designer of Mark of the Ninja and designer on Firewatch. You may also remember him from our Subterfuge Diaries.

in addition to us having a quick chat about a game from our youth that we've revisited. This time it was Phantasy Star Online - you can catch a video of us playing that here. Finally, some questions from you. Nothing new there - except a dangerously smooth jingle? I might end up going to jail for that one, actually. If it's possible to be jailed for jingles, that might be the one that crosses the line.

A final update that's relevant at this point: Daft Souls will now be once every two weeks, and will mostly just be myself and Quinns. Having cycling guests on the podcast was awesome, but also increasingly tricky to maintain for a number of rather dull, logistical reasons. It may not be permanent, but for now - here we go!

Myself and Quinns would once again like to take this opportunity to thank you all again for your patience, and if you do love the podcast and what we do - a review on iTunes would be ace!

Daft Souls 87: Duelyst, Titanfall 2, Overcooked, Thumper

Hello! Cool Ghosts is slowly whirring back into life, and we'll be kicking things off again in 2017 - perhaps at a slower pace than usual, but we're excited to be getting back into things. For now though, we thought it would be nice to squeak out an episode of Daft Souls - I'm joined by Quinns to talk about Duelyst, Overcooked, Titanfall 2, and Thumper.

Finally, thanks again for the support and patience you've shown throughout what has been a very difficult time. Things are not yet back to normal, but I'm keen to get back to making fun stuff. You're all excellent - I hope have a lovely holiday break with friends or family.

Daft Souls 86: INSIDE, Pokemon GO

This time on Daft Souls we're joined by the excellent Keza Macdonald to talk about INSIDE and Pokemon Go. No spoilers about the former until the very end of the podcast, at which point a clear SPOILER-ZONE is flagged. Also this week we have a brand new podcast setup, which we now frustratingly won't be using again for a while. Sorry to be such a tease, we're awful!

Daft Souls 83: Pocket Card Jockey, Superhot Secrets, Steamworld Heist

Matt is joined by Joe Skrebels for a chat about racing tiny horses and dabbling in other card-based games. Joe then dives into some of Superhot's bizarrely detailed secrets (expect spoilers) and both boys wax lyrical once again about Steamworld Heist.
