Gimmick Awards 2020 – Best New Character Podcast

Writing is essential to our enjoyment of games around here. Hell, there are games we think are BAD GAMES that we still have lots of affection for because of their cast of characters. That’s why every year, we take time to celebrate the Best New Character. Join Jen, Kyrie, and Six to hash out our winner. Don’t forget to check out the Write-Up for the winner and runners-up on the site!

Our intro music for the Gimmick Awards 2020 is 8bit22 from Demon’s Souls, a Japanese royalty-free music site. A big thank you to Zwimmy (@zwimmy on Twitter) for our Game of the Year art!
