Indestructible Art 119: Street Angels and Candy Law

Ryan’s out again this week so the remaining three IA members burn the podcast down. Omar played OlliOlli and tells the crew all about it, which leads to a fantastic conversation about skateboard flavored comics. Some crazy rumors hit about a new Nintendo console called the Nintendo Fusion and the crew determines if the mysterious specs are myth or fact. Lastly, the makers of Candy Crush Saga seek to keep other game devlopers from using the word Candy and the word Saga. Unfortunately the copyright claims do not bode well for Stoic Studio the makers of Banner Saga.
