Wonder Festival Winter 2017

Otherwise known as WonFes, was held on Sunday 19th in Japan. The event saw a number of new models and figurines being unveiled for the first time - many of them linked to popular gaming franchises. I’ve included a few of our favourites below.

If you managed to make it all the way to the end of this week’s podcast, you’ll have heard our poorly remembered game quote. But who said it, and in which game?

If you think you know the answer, drop us a message (using the contact form, Facebook, Twitter etc.) to be in with a chance to win a digital copy of World of Goo by 2D Boy!

One correct listener will be drawn randomly and announced on the next show.
