It seems like I’ve nearly forgotten about this page by now, and, truthfully, I nearly have. With everything that’s going on over in the land of YouTube and Twitch, blogging seems like a past-time that borders on self-indulgence more than anything.
But I do want to keep a record of my past accomplishments, however small they may be in the grand scheme of things, and to that end, I am now (very belatedly) archiving these appearances I did on two other shows. I did these almost back-to-back on the same day, so by the time I was done, it felt like I had run a live-stream marathon. I hadn’t, of course, but I did get to bed very, very late in the morning.
First, I went on Human Interact’s live-stream to watch Alexander play Phantasmagoria. Having recently completed my own playthrough of the game (featuring Richard Cobbett and Natalie Juhasz as co-commentators), I relished the opportunity to share the pain of playing that awful, awful FMV travesty with yet another person.
Then, a few hours later, I went on Indie Game Riot’s live podcast to chat about Snail Trek, the game that made parser games fun to play again. The host and I — never met him before, incidentally — quickly hit it off and started going off on long tangents about adventure game design in general, so it was a very fun experience. I thought it was going to be me in a crowd of people, so I didn’t really expect to be on camera, nor did I expect to be practically the only other guy on the show beside the host and a couple of commenters in the Twitch chat.
I had a blast with both appearances, and a big ol’ thank you to both Alexander and the IGR guys for having me on their shows.
