The Long Dark Community Podcast

8 posts in this topic

I am a Mod on The Long Dark Community on Facebook, and a while back other mods and the group owner floated around the idea of doing a podcast for the community. I volunteered to put something relatively simple together, as host...the only voice you hear at the moment.

I use simple editing software, and Mixcraft7 to put together each episode.

I basically discuss the new Dev Diaries, Upcoming updates, User Challenges and anything else I manage to think of- there's nothing "Official" about it and is not affiliated to Hinterland Games in any way. But we did miss their podcast and wanted to do something simple to fill the gap.

In the future we hope to have special audio guests like popular TLD LP'ers, and who knows what else.

Below you will find the Pilot Episode- Episode 0- which I originally uploaded to Buzzsprout the day before the Vigilant Flame Update. But is now only available on Youtube for now.

And a link to Episode one, just posted yesterday on Buzzsprout.

I'm certainly not a professional podcaster or editor for that matter but I am a huge The Long Dark I hope these will be appreciated and welcomed with that caveat in mind. I hope you enjoy!

Keep on Surviving!

Watching the first one right now. Looks good, only comment is that your voice is soft, low volume, even with the video volume turned up all the way. 

I honestly like the slideshow of screenshots from the game, so game sounds and music are not drowning your voice out, or turning it into a Let's Play instead of a podcast.

Really well done for a test, looking forward to seeing what you  do with this, going forward. :)

Yes in Episode 0 my microphone was my gaming headset...and it came out poorly.

In Episode 1 I use my Samson Go Mic...the sound is far better as a result.

Also I'm currently feeling very crap (got blessed with a voice killing bug at a family thanksgiving get together) so I might start to edit the slideshow version for upload on youtube sometime tomorrow.

I will be recording a new Episode of the Long Dark Community Podcast at around 10:30 or so this morning Pacific Standard Time.

If anyone wants to have their thoughts on Wintermute Redux read "on the air" comment in here and I will add them into the script for the new episode.

You will be called out by message board name and then I will read your comments.

I will be recording the user review segment on Monday and mixing the episode then as well so if you'd like to thank Hinterland via the community podcast please drop a response here and I will read and record it for inclusion in the Redux Review Podcast!
