When I first came across one of these videos, I couldn't believe it was for real. But yes. Apparently it is, indeed, a "thing." There's thousands of them. There are even several Let's Plays of my own games out there (and a special shout out must go to Resulka, who I think has Let's Played my entire catalog), which pleases me to no end.
Eventually it got into my head to try doing a Let's Play of my own, but instead of playing any random game I decided to play a game that I developed myself.
I chose Emerald City Confidential because, of all my games, I probably have the most to say about it. It has an interesting genesis. PlayFirst (a casual game developer) approached me (a old school point-and-click developer) to make a game for them. Their goal? To make a point-and-click style game for the casual audience. We came from two totally different mindsets, and the road to finishing this game was an interesting one to say the least.
Anyway, here's the first episode. In this first episode, we learn how to pick up and use a crowbar, why dialog options can be intimidating, and the story behind the quest gems.

Please let me know in the comments if you find these interesting! I'll probably do more.
