Torment Thursdays 2-5 – Matkina, have ya seen her?

YouTube Link

With the clock repaired we have pretty much caught up to my first run in terms of main story progress. In fact we are a little further through since I don’t think I had any idea last time where to start looking for her where as now we have a location and a name. We need to find out where Fulsome is and if they have seen Matkina. It does look like she has spent a fair amount of time interacting with people in the Underbelly though so I am sure we can get some more information from the other inhabitants. Time to go talk to the overseers again, mostly because I like them.

On a more technical note I would really prize feedback regarding the voicework I have been doing, this episode marks the first time I have tried to add an effect directly on the vocal track so I would love to know what people think of it and any kind of tweaking they would like done. Specifically I am talking about the effect I added for the Overseer voices, I hope it helps to make them more distinct and helps to remind the viewer of the artificial nature of the speaker, it takes a bit more work but the same approach could potentially be used to help further separate some of the characters I have been interacting with. It is surprisingly difficult to create new voices for each character and then to remember them week to week, I do not know how voice actors manage.

Let’s Play? I Hardly *Knew* Her!

Howdy, fine readers! Jarenth here: I’m back from the United States of America with a head full of stories, a stomach full of junk food, and no gifts. Well, I mean, I have some of those decorative flattened pennies if you want them.

In lieu of an actual new Indie Wonderland — the regular delivery of which will resume next week — I have for you, in this post, two Let’s Play-related snippets. First, I’ve updated the Let’s Play-section of our menu to contain a complete overview of Jarenth Plays XCOM. So if you’ve ever wanted to re-read your favourite ‘I fight aliens, fail, win sometimes’ episodes, it’s now more easy than ever.

And second, I’ve decided that now would be an excellent time to try my hand at another one of these Let’s Plays. This is actually something I want to talk about in more length, which is why it’s hidden after this section break. If you’re not interested in helping me decide which game to Jarenth-Plays next, you’re free to stop reading right now.

Are you sure you can handle the *sheer responsibility*? You are? Fine then. Continue on.
