The Adventure Pals

Hello, my beautiful poison and fairy types. This week on NEP, we have a special guest—three in fact! Jay, James and Julian from Massive Monster join us to talk about their upcoming challenging action-platformer for Nintendo Switch, “Never Give Up”. The devs reveal a lot about their upcoming game including a few secrets, how Egoraptor / Arin Hanson is involved, and their origins as developers that led up to this point.

The trio then sticks around to chat with us about new Pokemon details and lootboxes in gaming, with Nintendo making a statement recently about introducing new rules for transparency. We all get on and have a great chat, and we’re particularly grateful for Massive Monster’s insight on these topics as developers.

If you like what you’re hearing, you can support us by giving NEP a 5 star review on Apple Podcasts, aka new iTunes. We would greatly appreciate if you could help us out! We’re very grateful for your support, and we thank you for listening!
