In this episode Gino and Pete are joined by special guest, 2Mello to discuss Umuragni Generation. We discuss the game's successful evocation of Jet Set Radio's aesthetics to comment on protest, joy, and despair in the face of oppression and climate disaster. We then talk about the game's photography systems and how it guides the player to explore every nook and cranny of its world. We wrap up by discussing how the game's core themes fit right in with the current protests, pandemic, and climate crises that are rocking the world.
