Awesome! Love this game. Cc: @Jmstar


Great episode! Grey Ranks retains one of the top spots among my “games I haven’t played but really want to play” :sweat_smile:


This is on my bucket list.


I’d love to chat about Grey Ranks if the episode prompts questions for you.

In terms of inspirational media I highly recommend Andrzej Wajda’s films Pokolenie and Kanał. Pokolenie has a more early chapter Grey Ranks feel to it, and Kanał is just an astonishing film set during the Rising.
