"No problem, fun!" - Griffin McElroy's regularly used sign-off for CoolGames Inc

CoolGames Inc was a weekly comedy podcast produced by Polygon, presented by Griffin McElroy and Nick Robinson. Each episode, Griffin and Nick would discuss various game ideas submitted by listeners, before settling upon one particular idea (or "dank nug") to flesh out further. Guests occasionally appeared on the show, to whom the chosen game idea was pitched for additional feedback. The podcast started on 27th January, 2016 and new episodes were uploaded on Fridays (occasionally Saturdays). Most episodes typically lasted between 55 to 65 minutes, aside from the occasional CoolGames Inc Junior minisodes, which lasted between 20 to 30 minutes.

Submissions were initially taken via their Twitter but due to a rapidly increasing number of submissions, they eventually switched to utilizing the official CGI Subreddit, where there would be a weekly thread for listeners to post suggestions.

As a consequence of Nick Robinson's departure from Polygon on August 10, 2017 following allegations of sexual harassment over social media, the future of CoolGames Inc remains uncertain.

The theme song which plays at the start and end of nearly every episode was 'Social Science' by Maxo.
