Episode Notes

Play;Write is a podcast about creating and sharing new ways to play. We workshop seedlings of ideas for video games in hopes of coming up with something timeless. It's not just about us, though! Join in the conversation! Pitch your own game ideas to be read and explored on air on our website at, tweet us @playwritecast, or email us at

In this episode of the podcast, Ryan Hamann (@InsrtCoins) and guest Jeff Prahl (@jeffprahl) play with Mercury, reinvestigate the atrocities of the past, and set up crime scenes. The community pitch was submitted by Neil Piper.

Our theme song is "Hello World." by PROTODOME from the album BLUENOISE.
