A neat example of a completed Audio Drama with limited scope. The story justifies the format (log entries) and mostly single voice acting (character is in a solo training period) as consistent parts of the world building without getting caught in its own trap. Plenty of mystery and suspense to justify the tension of the slow pace. The tone is mostly trippy poetry with some resistance and frustrations. AR Olivieri has real skill with micro fiction and is exploring the AD medium with thoughtful and interesting work. A Supercut of this project would make for a smoother and more enjoyable audience experience.
Please post a super cut
It’s frustrating to have to skip through so much self promotions for the amount of time the story is. The choppiness makes it very hard to follow. Also the amount of repetition in the intro and outro is literally painful, as someone with auditory sensory issues. Please make a super cut, it would improve the experience of the story immensely.
Negative points aside, your pace is slow but not drudgingly so, your narration inflections make it enjoyable.
The story is interesting as hell and the twist at the end was brilliant. I’m so glad you (very smoothly) managed to avoid the “evil machine” trope, despite the story atmosphere hinting at it.
This show just gets me
2298 takes place in a not-so-distant future. A single narrator show that maintains the mystery of a dystopian world but also vividly critique aspects of the present. It's a deeply captivating sci-fi. The music is also brilliant. Listen and get lost in this world.
