Greetings once again loyal listeners and welcome once again to your weekly vertical slice of gaming goodness and geek culture. On this installment of the program it is out great pleasure to tackle another grand legacy. Maybe not one of the highest viability but still a franchise that has been in existence for nearly 20 years now. Indeed this week we are welcoming Graham Markay, Director Of Operations at Natsume, publishers and now creators of the venerable Harvest Moon franchise. While the Harvest Moon franchise is probably where you know the name Natsume, they do have a very long and storied history dating back to the NES days and the publishing of such games as Shadow of the Ninja and S.C.A.T: Special Cybernetic Attack Team and down through the ages handling a number of games and franchises. More examples would be Tatio games like Lufia, Pocky and Rocky and Bust-A-Move or other niche products like Carnage Heart EXA, Rune Factory, Legend of the River King and Reel Fishing. A legacy that continues to this day with titles like Alphadia Genesis, Yumi’s Odd Odyssey and the upcoming A-Train: City Simulator for the 3DS.   A special note of the show, this is going to be one of our episode long interviews given the size and scope of the legacy.  As always be sure to tune into the program live on Talkshoe this Wednesday at 9:00 PM EST/6:00 PM PST or if you miss the show be sure to download from Talkshoe, iTunes or the PodcastAddict App for Android.
