This episode looks at three very different building games – the under-structured endless creative mode of Townscaper, the overly points-based Islanders, and a game that hits the Goldilocks zone: Cloud Gardens. It's a mellow but melancholic light free-form puzzler in which you drop endless human trash into abandoned post-industrial dioramas, until wild plants completely overgrow them. Also mentioned this episode: Death Trash, Psychonauts 2, Lake. If you enjoy the show, please do come say hi on Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and Twitch - find the links at http://gaminginthewild.com.
