Episode 27 - Kollosal Cash

Jamie, Iain and..... well Sam is away doing things beyond Space and Time. In the meantime it's time to call in our band of roving reporters in from the wild and get them a seat at the table. First up is Ross Connell from More Games Please. The team cover the recent cancellation of Kollosal Games kickstarters, why they didn't win any Golden Geeks, loads of financial news from across the hobby and discuss the importance of art in games.
