Bonus Episode – IGDN AP Synthicide

Hey Folks. Something a little different this week. I’m a member of the IGDN and I want to help the members get their games out in the world. This is an effort to help do that. Dustin DePenning, the creator of Synthicide, has put together an AP which I think is well done. Within is a brief description of the game and then the AP. Hope you enjoy this bonus content.
