‘Kidnapped by Ninjas’ is a new video podcast about gamesâ€”mostly but not completely video gamesâ€”put together by a games designer, a games developer and a games modder. The modder is wunderkind Harry Hughes; the developer is Cat Burton of Mind Candy, and you wonâ€™t be surprised to hear who the games designer is.
Episode 1 has dropped (watch here; other download sites coming shortly) and weâ€™re talking mostly about Blur, the driving game from Bizarre Creations that comes on like Project Gotham Racing with Mario Kart power-ups, as well as Grand Theft Horsey… er, Red Dead Redemption. We also talk review systems, who exactly has been kidnapped by ninjas, and drop a minor exclusive about the revision of a 90s gaming classic.
Itâ€™s 16 minutes. Future episodes will likely be a bit longer and a bit smoother, and we will fix Cat’s lapel-mike, and I will have a haircut and stop looking at Harry as if Iâ€™m about to eat him.
