We’re back with another one of our special lockdown episodes. This time, we are venturing deeper into our screens in search of escapism, just stopping shy of going full Videodrome. Once again, we’re returning to the topic of films, discussing a few more movies that have provided merciful distraction of late.

These lockdown episodes are a way of thanking our Patreon backers for sticking with us through these difficult times. We’re releasing them on the off-weeks between our normal episodes.

If you would like to gain access to these special episodes, simply back us on Patreon at any level. We will continue to release our standard episodes every fortnight as usual.

If you are already a backer, you will find a post in your Patreon feed with a download link. The episode will appear in our special Patreon RSS feed.

We’re back with another one of our special lockdown episodes. As the quarantine continues, so does our need to seek distraction through media. This time, we’re talking about some of the television that has filled our hours recently, saving us from painful introspection. We hope that this podcast can do the same for you.

We’re back and we’re still under lockdown. Like the rest of you, we’re turning to books, films, podcasts and other media to take us beyond these four walls, if only mentally. We thought it might be fun to share some recommendations with you, hence this series of special episodes.

In this episode, we discuss a few horror or weird fiction books we’ve read recently. As ever, we also offer our thoughts about how they might inspire games.

Shoggoth in a jar.

We’re back and we’re keeping ourselves busy while quarantined. This largely involves catching up with books, films, television, and other inspirational media. It was either that or necromancy, and books smell nicer.

So we thought we’d help keep you entertained at the same time. This is the first of a limited run of special lockdown episodes for our Patreon backers. We’re releasing them on the off-weeks, between normal episodes, where they will lurk like the entities that live in the spaces between spaces. The specials are less likely to eat you, however. We hope.

In this episode, we discuss a few horror films we’ve seen recently. As ever, we also offer our thoughts about how they might inspire games.

The particular films we discuss are:

We also mention the Tear Them Apart podcast’s lively dissection of Color Out of Space. Highly recommended if you want to hear a much less positive take than ours.

This last week has been one of the weirdest any of us can remember. Almost everyone we know has quarantined themselves from the COVID-19 outbreak and is trying to adjust to social isolation. As a result, we’ve been working out what we can do to help keep you entertained while all this is happening.

The main thing is that we’re going to keep putting out episodes following our regular schedule. We will, however, have to record remotely for a while. You may notice something of a change in audio quality until things get back to normal. This is all very new to us.

We are also going to do a few extra things for our Patreon backers. For a start, we’re going to resurrect the backer chats. It’s been far too long since we last held one.

After some research, it seems Crowdcast best meets our requirements. It allows us to host video livestreams with audience participation and record them for those who can’t attend at the time.

Our plan is to hold the first of these new backer chats on Saturday the 28th of March, probably in the evening, UK time. We will send out specific details soon via Patreon.

The big news is that we will put out extra episodes for Patreon backers while this crisis continues. These will go out on the off-weeks, when there’s no standard release. They will be slightly different from normal episodes — more informal chats, with only some light editing. We plan to release the first one on the 7th of April. Watch your Patreon feeds for details.
