What An Amazing Concept!

The way this group uses audio as a creative outlet to show their love for these games just floored me. I actually teared up early on during the Final Fantasy IV series (Season One) - hearing this game done as a radio serial, while I was reminiscing the days way back when I first played it, just hit me in the heart full on: I miss those days so much, and they really did such a great job bringing the game to life. The writing, to narrate so much of the gameplay, was spot on and does SquareSoft proud.

I was so completely touched by the way in which these people here went about showing their mad love for these video games 😢... Irresistible! (and everybody’s voice acting was way better than it really had any right to be - many Drama podcasts aren’t as good.) Everyone involved deserves a standing ovation and gratitude 🙏.

Heamuse ,

This is actually great, you guys.

The hosts are new but the quality of this podcast is fantastic. I just started season 2 but I loved the many voices the two hosts were able to do (Great job, Calvin!) and I really adored the original music and sound effects from the game. It brought out a lot of memories of playing Final Fantasy myself. A few episodes into season 2 (Fallout), I'm impressed how they've gone from doing all the voices themselves to bringing in so many guest voice actors. This is clearly a lot of work; I'm hopefully this podcast can continue regular updates. (No pressure, Calvin and RPG Rabbit!) I've recommended this to my siblings and cousins and would definitely recommend you give it a try too!
