The VGMbassy rings in the new year of 2020 with some music from games that require logic, intellect, and a very dry sense of humor. That’s right, we’re talking about point and click adventure titles! Ed is joined by Chris Steenerson and Matt Sargent from the VGJam podcast, and the trio dig up some wonderful music from all types of adventure games. Plus, learn a bit more about Chris and Matt’s new podcast!
