This month’s episode is the result of a poll gone horribly wrong. Ed asked the VGMbassy Patreon subscribers what theme they’d like to submit songs for, and they overwhelmingly chose to torture our poor host with the worst game music ever heard. Not one to suffer by himself, Ed drags his Embassy Exclusive buddies Joe and Todd into the mix so they can all suffer and laugh at the awful music too. What’s more, the three hosts also get in on the action and choose some of their own stinky tunes!
A huge thank you to Indira J (The Misadventures of Buddy and Friend, Sacrimony) for the amazing VGMbassy artwork and design, and to Trevin Hughes (aka chiptune composer Jredd) for the podcast theme song!
