The timeline is wonky. We’re not done with Phoenix Down, yet, but need to be. It’s strayed so very, very far from what Ramen Empire is supposed to be, and frankly, it’s the weakest of the three Ramen Empire books so far, by a long shot. We’ve been trying to do too much with one story.
This, though, I think is special, and it only takes place a month or so after Phoenix Down ends, so you’re don’t need much more context than that they do go home and do live, for the most part, happily ever after to get back to making films in their bizarre fantasy world.
I grew up reading Calvin & Hobbes, and I always wanted way more Spaceman Spiff than I got. Zach and I aim to fix that with Zounds. Let us know what you think.
So this project has been on the back-burner for a long time. We finally got everything we need to start it, and we’re jumping in with both feet. It’s a D&D Let’s Play podcast. The sound quality on the first few episodes is going to be a little wonky as we work out the tech — I’m editing episode one and it already sounds better, because I learned a LOT editing episode 0 — and it’s only going to get better.
It should be searchable on iTunes and a handful of the other big podcasting platforms in the next few days. I’ll be putting them up on both SoundCloud and Patreon, both of which have RSS feeds that should allow you to regularly download these with whatever your favorite podcast software is.
