So there we have it, Pilot Season is over, the polls are closed, the votes tallied and out from the shadows comes the brand new, reigning, defending, undisputed Let’s Play Champion, Hollow Knight! This is the game I’ll be playing for the foreseeable future, doing my best not to record episodes while I’m sleep deprived…starting from episode 3. Continue reading Let’s Play Hollow Knight – Episode 2
It’s certainly been a few good weeks for my Let’s Plays. I’ve had the chance to get back into it, not only recording these episodes for YouTube and editing them–though mostly it was sound I edited, there wasn’t much to edit on the video side for these–but also on the broadcasting front. I’ve found a nice schedule that works for me and let’s me be live on Twitch for three days a week, playing games and building plastic models. Continue reading Pilot Season – All Candidates
For the past few weeks I’ve gone over my little Pilot Season, inspired by what Amazon does with its proposed series. Each week I’ve shown you the first episode of a proposed Let’s Play series on The Mental Attic’s YouTube channel.
The first one was Ori and the Blind Forest, followed by Hollow Knight and last week Dead Cells. Well, I’ve left the weirdest for last. Continue reading Pilot Season – Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom
This is week three of the pilot season, where I show the first episode of a few Let’s Play series, you vote which one you like the most and I keep playing that game to the end. The second most voted for comes afterwards and the rest fade into oblivion.
So far we’ve had Ori and the Blind Forest and Hollow Knight, two wonderful Metroidvania games, the genre I’ve been obsessed with for the past few months. Now it’s time for a rogue-like on Early Access on steam, Dead Cells. Continue reading Pilot Season – Week 3 – Dead Cells
It’s week 2 of the Pilot Season, where I show the first episode of potential new Let’s Play series and you help me decide which one will go past the first episode into a full series on The Mental Attic’s YouTube Channel. Last week it was Ori and the Blind Forest, a lovely little metroidvania, so this week let’s finish getting the platformers out of the way, with the first episode for the game I’ve written and spoken about the most in the past few weeks, the Metroidvania Souls-like H0llow Knight. Hope you enjoy this fun little episode, where I use some pogo skills to get early access to a lovely little item that makes me more powerful when I’m close to biting the dust!
Next week it’s the Rogue-like Dead Cells, where I’ll try to put on a good show before I inevitably get my butt kicked in horrible ways! See you then and don’t forget to vote!
On Friday I mentioned my intent to return to the wonderful world of Let’s Play series on YouTube, but that to make things interesting and leave it to the audience to decide which series they’d like to go with, I would imitate Amazon on its Pilot Season, where they show the first episode of potential TV series, picking the most popular to go forward at the end of the preliminary season. Continue reading Pilot Season – Week 1 – Ori and the Blind Forest
No, there isn’t a game called Pilot Season, at least I don’t think there is. But you know how Amazon has that yearly Pilot Season, where they stream TV pilots so people pick the ones that will become full fledged series? I’ve decided to do the same thing with Let’s Plays. Continue reading Let’s Play – Pilot Season!
I know there haven’t been any new Bad Blood chapters in a little while, nor have there been any new pieces or character concepts for Summersalt. Hell, there haven’t been any new Writing Guide entries. I haven’t abandoned them, trust me I haven’t. But Extra Life was my first priority for a while.
They will be back soon but to make sure the quality is there while I’m working on several things at once, I’m going to do things differently now. Let’s go over each: Continue reading Writing in the Attic
