    Marc's son, Lucas, joins the podcast to review the Steam video game, Voltron: Cubes of Olkarion. And, Lucas sticks around to talk about what's on everyone's Christmas Gift List for Voltron Fans.Voltron: Cubes of Olkarion, developed by Switzerland-based independent game studio, Gbanga, was the winning game coming out of the 2018 Universal GameDev Challenge. The game demonstrated the most potential for expansion into a commercial product and beat hundreds of other submissions to win the competition.In case you’re not already aware, the Universal GameDev Challenge was a collaboration between Universal Games and Unity Technologies and sponsored by Intel and Microsoft, that invited developers to submit a design for a PC game that leveraged one of five iconic Universal brands: Back to the Future, Jaws, Battlestar Galactica, DreamWorks Voltron Legendary Defender and Turok Son of Stone. Nearly 550 entries were submitted worldwide. As the grand prize winner, Gbanga received $150,000 and a year-long consulting contract with Universal Games and Digital Platforms for Voltron: Cubes of Olkarion.Voltron: Cubes of Olkarion is a one-on-one, real-time-strategy game boiled down to a single sideview screen, with fighting and puzzler game elements. The action-packed title is based on an episode in the Netflix original series DreamWorks Voltron Legendary Defender, where the Olkari people were forced to build a single gigantic cube superweapon that tried to destroy Voltron. In the game, both sides build single weapon cubes – the so-called Cubes of Olkarion – and stack them to towers in the middle. Each cube has different attack and defense abilities. Some of these cubes can launch projectiles, others are placed for defense, others can spawn units that attack the opponent.Voltron: Cubes of Olkarion is available on Steam for PC for $19.99 and the Founder's Pack DLC is $9.99. Check out the game page here:https://store.steampowered.com/app/1078550/Voltron_Cubes_of_Olkarion/Lucas reviews this game on this podcast, with Marc and Greg, AND Lucas put together a video review for our YouTube Channel, and you can see that here:https://youtu.be/qxdqpy9RkEgThank you, Lucas, for these great reviews!For our Voltron Fan Christmas list, we reviewed some of the items we think Voltron Fans would want this year.

With the other three frozen, Keith and Allura have to face the monster by themselves.
