Surviving Isolation: Critical Role Introduces Critter Hug

by Transmute Jun

The social isolation and economic shutdown as a result of the novel coronavirus have created both a demand for new sources of entertainment, as well as the need to recognize indie creators (whose livelihoods are currently threatened). Enter Critter Hug, a new show premiering May 4 on the Critical Role Youtube channel. The show will air a new episode the first Monday of every month, at 10 am Pacific time.

Hosted by Matthew Mercer (Critical Role) and Mica Burton (Rooster Teeth), Critter Hug highlights independent creators of games and gaming-related entertainment, as well as locally-owned gaming stores. The first episode highlights a family-friendly ‘laser kitten’ roleplaying game, the Queens of Adventure gaming podcast, and more. For a sneak peek, you can check out the series trailer, or watch the first episode here.
