Episode 26: Fall of the Language Barrier

It all goes very, very south in my relationship with CyberCedric. I’m really starting to worry here.

But before it all goes straight to hell, let’s get warm and cozy with Jess “DecafJedi” Morrissette and talk about The Big Three — the three fan games (Vohaul Strikes Back, Incinerations, and Space Quest II VGA) that were all released around the start of 2012.

We’ll also hear more crowdfunding tips from Serena Nelson. And tonight’s special guest is a man with a smooth-ass French accent, Monsieur Fabrice Breton, creator of Demetrios: The BIG Cynical Adventure, in his first-ever podcast appearance!

Also, there’s the 3rd excerpt from Pete Toleman‘s memoirs. And here’s a little juicy behind-the-scenes info: I had completely forgotten I was supposed to cut in a clip of a German person talking and a translator talking over it. So on the day of mixing, I had to scramble hard. Luckily, Fred Olsen pointed me towards an absolutely hilarious series of commercials featuring Blixa Bargeld reading aloud from a DIY catalogue, which became the “German voice” underneath the translation. For the translation itself, Fred also recorded the voice of the translator, but I felt it would be a bit distracting as he might be too recognizable as CyberCedric, even though he wasn’t speaking in an aggravated falsetto. So, at the very last minute, Francisco Gonzalez a.k.a. Grundislav, stepped in and voiced the translator. My undying thanks to both gentlemen for saving my ass big-time here.

You can, of course, check out the uncensored and very NSFW voicemail from Pete on its own here.

Right, enough of that! Listen to the damn thing!

And, of course, the episode is also on YouTube for those of you who enjoy that sort of thing:

Oh, and don’t forget to support the show on Patreon! I mean, you don’t have to. But, apparently, it’s becoming the thing cool kids do!
