EPISODE INFO
Monster(s): The Glyphids
Featuring: David, Adam, Libby
Rating: Mature (for some offensive language and adult themes)

SUMMARY
ROCK AND STONE! Every now and then, the Cinematica Team veers off from movies and plunges straight into an alien planet as a team of space mining dwarves. Join Adam, Dave, and Libby on this special episode with a video game near and dear to our beer drinking, Doretta loving hearts: Deep Rock Galactic (2020). We look at how blind cave dwelling glyphids might smell a pungent dwarf from afar, how crazy yellow ants spew “acid” at cows, and why video games are an interactive book. Oh, and of course, for Karl!
