  • I am not worthy to witness King Hubers goodness. This looks so good!

  • Loved the playtest session already as it is! That's a great foundation to build upon. Trivia questions with RPG elements, what a cool combination and execution. I'm imagining this in a studio environment with all the props, that'd be so awesome. :)

  • This was a great watch and an excellent proof of concept. Also, shout out to I think Ian for being in the comments of the post on Patreon last night to answer comments and questions about the show.

    To repeat part of what I said on Patreon: I truly believe this is something special and I really hope the world gets to see this.

  • I feel like I would slay at this game

  • This was pretty cool. I've got complaints but they're basically just audio/visual things that I assume would be sorted out whenever this escapes the test-run phase and goes into full production. If I had to make one suggestion it'd be to have a video game related monster in every game, but it changes to a specific subgenre each time(for example questions focused on the Mega Man series or the Sega Dreamcast, something like that.)

  • Very cool concept, it should be a very fun show to watch once all the production values are injected into it!

    I would also suggest having more video game-related questions in there, I believe they only have 2 categories at the moment (retro and modern games), and they were both in the second phase.

    Are the Allies actually taking feedback somewhere (Patreon?) or is the game pretty much set in stone already?

  • @axel Some questions did get answered shortly after posting and Jason popped in with a comment giving an update of sorts. They are reading and taking in comments, but there's a lot I'm sure they are already aware of.

  • We have a shadow drop! No more waiting for Patreon numbers, this thing's monthly now. :)
    What a fun show, honestly. The intro made me chuckle like crazy, the vibes are just perfect. Awesome work from everyone involved. Ian, Huber, Jason. A really cool addition to the EZA world.

  • I absolutely LOVED everything about this.

  • I was initially skeptical about a game show... but this was amazing. I adored it.

    This was a 10 for SURE! This was so much better than I even dared to hope for!

  • The Mysterious Monsters theme music is so catchy and awesome! I hope its released on Soundcloud or something soon!

  • I've been watching it for like three times already, it's so damn good. I'm not a fan of game shows but this really got me hooked. Huber is absolutely amazing as the host, and I imagine he only gets better. It's already my favorite piece of EZA content.

  • I loved this official Ep 1. Its a joy. I'm sooooo happy they just went ahead and did it. This show is a prime opportunity to get guests from the industry onto the Easy Allies platform and generate new fans. For example, Corey Barlog could have done this if the studio was around when he visited. He did a million spoiler talks about God of War (EZA, IGN, Kotaku, just to name a few all had spoiler talks with him) BUT I bet EZA would be the only one to have him on a game show.

    I posted some criticism on Patreon but I never know with that comment section. Maybe it'll be heard and seen here event though I'm not sure if the Allies use this forum more than once a year.

    Two suggestions - 1) A LOT Less US history, maybe more games or related stuff 2) what if the contestants were sometimes a character? A Vampire, Werewolf, Cold Blooded, Ultima Brad?

  • This is easily my favorite feature on Easy Allies currently. I cannot wait for the next episode! Thank you to everyone involved getting Mysterious Monsters rolling.

    Ian kills me as the wizard. Way to embrace the role!

    I think this was my favourite episode yet, the competition was really even between all three. Friendly vibes as well, and just generally good thinking.

  • Same here, it's also my favorite so far. The contestants got a really good chemistry, and it just so happens that they kept a pretty equal footing from the middle to end which makes it way more entertaining.

    Also, I'm excited for next episode's patch notes.

  • Loved the most recent ep. I think the biggest and easiest change they should make is to add lower thirds during the contestants' introductions that includes full name, twitter handle, and their position/what they're known for. Will be especially helpful for guests. Eg:
