Video Game Deep Cuts: The Animal Crossing Minutes

Work chat and sea horses.

[My Gamasutra colleagues had an editorial meeting in Animal Crossing - here’s evidence!]

We’re back again with Video Game Deep Cuts on Substack, folks. I got some good feedback on the revamped newsletter, so there’s going to be a couple of tweaks, hurrah.

(Specifically: tactical bolding of words/phrases, plus the use of emoji to show whether the linked piece is a video📽, article📰, podcast🎧, etc.)

Since I’m on sabbatical from the dayjob, I could actually make multiple of these ‘core’ free VGDC newsletters per week. But it’s a slippery slope timewise. So I’ll be keeping it to two newsletters per week (one for free, one for paid subscribers!) for now - enjoy!
