    201 // Interviewing the Team Behind Aliens Expanded

    Patrick and Jaime were delighted to sit down with writer/director Ian Nathan, and executive producer Robin Block as they discussed their new documentary Aliens Expanded. If Alien fandom has a bedrock, it would be none-other than James Cameron's Aliens. Aliens is the film everyone gathers around, the main course at a cinematic feast. Ian, and Robin discuss why they believe that's the case, and how they want to capture the love and celebration in a documentary that's certain to ignite our love for the film even more. We hope you enjoy.

    198 // Interviewing Chris Bissette, Creator of The Wretched

    198 // Interviewing Chris Bissette, Creator of The Wretched

    Have you ever wondered what would've happened if Ripley's showdown with the creature onboard The Narcissus had ended differently? Chris Bissette is a game designer, writer, and musician who created an innovative RPG experience to explore that question—not only creating a theoretical fifth act to Alien, but putting players in Ripley's shoes as well. The Wretched is an original IP, but functions beautifully as an Alien analogue.

    In this minisode, Patrick and Christian chat with Chris about game design, the enduring power of Alien, and why single-player RPG experiences are having such a moment. 

    For more on Chris and their work (and to grab a copy of The Wretched for yourself!), visit https://loottheroom.itch.io/wretched.

    And be sure to give Chris a follow on Twitter @pangalactic while you're at it!

    An actual play of The Wretched will be coming to our Patreon feed in the near future if you'd like to hear the full audio experience. Happy gaming!

    196 // Interviewing Andy Kelly, Author of Perfect Organism: An Alien: Isolation Companion

    196 // Interviewing Andy Kelly, Author of Perfect Organism: An Alien: Isolation Companion

    Alien: Isolation is the sort of game that attracts a certain type of Alien obsessive: packed with lore, overflowing with aesthetic detail, and completely unrelenting in its difficulty and terror, Isolation is an extraordinary achievement in game design that continues to enthrall Alien fans eight years after its release.

    Andy Kelly is a video game journalist who has written extensively about Alien: Isolation from the very beginning. Along the way, he's amassed a wealth of interviews, behind-the-scenes insights, and level design knowledge that has culminated, finally, in his writing the definitive Alien: Isolation companion.

    In this episode, Andy takes Patrick and Christian behind the curtains for a deeper look at this incredible game, and lets us know what we can look forward to when the book is eventually published.

    To support the book's creation on Unbound, visit https://unbound.com/books/perfect-organism/. And be sure to follow Andy on Twitter @ultrabrilliant so you never miss an update along the way!

A must listen for Aliens fans

An excellent show for lovers of the Alien universe. These guys really know film and have a gift for sharing that information in an entertaining fashion. I’m a fan.

Film Nerd Theater ,

Beware! Fantastic, deep-dives every episode!

Perfect Organism is the first podcast to hook he into regular listening. The hosts discuss details of the Alien saga to a level and depth I had not encountered. From behind-the-scenes to cast and creator interviews, they do a great job of separating episodes into focused series within their expansive back catalog for new listeners.

High production values set it apart from a lot of similar sci-if genre podcasts. They delve into a granular level of minutiae without alienating the uninitiated. Their format and pacing is so solid, I don’t know how they do it. But I’m glad they do. Every episode goes to the top of the queue.

Do yourself a favor and listen to these knowledgeable hosts and characters. Beware! They will pull you back into this franchise deeper than you ever have been!

Love this podcast

I love this franchise, and these people do an amazing job diving in to each episode (regardless of the topic) to explore something new about a particular character or movie (or soundtrack!). It’s hard to find podcasts these days that are so entertaining AND stay away from current politics/political views (because if I wanted that I’d listen to some other show).
Thank you so much for all the work you put in to each episode and I look forward to many, many more to come!
