E49 Citizen Sleeper

E49 Citizen Sleeper

Hope you like mushrooms.

Wake up, Citizen! Ben and Tao are in festive spirits as they dish out a Christmas feast of sci-fi turkey with roast story spoilers on the side and cranberry DLC toppings in dice rolling space adventure, Citizen Sleeper - to be clear, absolutely not a turkey, by any definition! Your boys riding the mic get lyrical, discussing the overlap between board games and video games, gaming achievements, romance and gender in RPGs, playing good and evil, characters you can root for, and, naturally, Pixel Vision’s Christmas tradition… There’s a multitude of story spoilers after our initial reactions and the Taomun-ologue.

Content Warning: PEGI 12. Pretty PG this one. ‘Tis the season, innit.


  • Citizen Sleeper’s excellent soundtrack is by Amos Roddy. It’s available on Spotify:

  • Gareth Damian Martin talks to PCGamer about his personal experience relating to gender and its influence on the game’s development.

  • The other game by Gareth Damian Martin and ‘Jump Over The Edge’ studios is In Other Waters, which also looks really cool…
