The Spoilers Club: Browse The Archives

We introduced the Spoiler’s Club with the launch of REPOD Season 1. In this podcast (special for Patreon backers), David and Peih-Gee discuss an escape room in great detail, spoilers and all. We’ve gone through a few iterations of the format and settled on one we really like: the creator joins the conversation.

About the Spoilers Club

There are more than 2,650 posts on REA. We have spent more than 8 years striving to perfect the art of discussing immersive games without spoiling them. Our unofficial slogan has been “no one says nothing in 500 words like we do.”

When Peih-Gee joined the team and we started working on the podcast together, she really wanted to find a place where we could have those spoiler conversations – the kind that we might have at a bar after playing a game.

Over the past couple of years, we have been iterating on the Spoilers Club format… trying out different models… seeing what feels right. At episode 6 we struck gold when we started inviting the creators on to join the conversation.

Since then, we’ve continued improving the format, and we’re really happy with where it is.

It’s crazy that after all of these years of struggling to find ways to keep the secrets, when we finally had a place where we could spill them, it was even harder to make.

Thank you!

The Spoilers Club is a lot of work to put together, and it’s the kind of thing that we can only justify because we’re doing it for our supporters.

It’s the kind of content that we truly cannot put out on the open internet for just any random player to find, so we love that we’re able to share it with an audience that truly appreciates it.

As always, thank you to our Patreon backers. We couldn’t do it without you.
