EPIC is your new HQ for Realm’s exhilarating action and adventure stories, with new episodes dropping every Monday introduced by host Faith McQuinn.

Embark on your greatest adventures yet, whether it’s crash landing on a desolate planet with only a cerebrally-embedded AI to guide you, or realizing that your latest game design is the only thing staving off total global annihilation. So unsheath those earbuds, clench that steering wheel, and buckle up because EPIC is about to take off.

This month, we are featuring a story starring Firefly’s Summer Glau, where a virtual game has real world implications: CTRL-ALT-DESTROY

A video game designer discovers that the game she created has been stolen as part of a top secret project—and might be the only thing keeping the world from plunging into war. 

While battling monsters and exploring dungeons in the world of Alternis, nations compete for real-world resources, and losing has catastrophic consequences. Desperate for help, Team USA hopes that bringing in the game’s actual designer—in secret—will give them the upper hand they need. 

But in a futuristic world where losing has catastrophic consequences, is the game itself playing fair?

Ctrl-Alt-Destroy is a Realm production, written by Andrea Phillips, Maurice Broaddus, Jacqueline Koyanagi, and E.C. Myers. Listen Away.

Great show all around!

As the title says, this is a great show all around. It’s right to the point filled with action, drama suspense, and more. Storyline and voice actors or just an incredible sync. Very excited for more to come from this story.

Marigold Breach - A Sci-Fi Masterpiece

Marigold Breach is a wonderful and engaging sci-fi podcast. Not since Dust: Season 3 or Vast Horizon have I been so captured by such a unique and interesting story. The premise is creative and the voice acting is spot on. There where many moments I actually felt right there, fighting along side with Lucan (Manny Jacinto) and his AI Ven (Jameela Jamil.) I can’t wait for season 2 and the seasons beyond.
