SFP-NOW Featuring Andreas Juliusson & James Hunt From Fast Travel Games
Welcome to another exciting episode of SFP-NOW here on SciFiPulseRadio. For this episode Ian goes into the realms of Virtual Reality Games and chats with Andreas Juliusson and James Hunt from developer Fast Travel Games. In the interview we talk about the exciting new Puzzle Game 'The Curious Tale of The Stolen Pets' as well as the many projects that the developer has been working on. Speaking about the new game Andreas and James discuss how fans have responded to the game at the various gaming conventions that they have shown the game at. We also touch on the animation style, which put me in mind of a more slick and modern take on the work that 1970's animators Rankin/Bass who were famous for their Christmas animated films as well as The Wind in The Willows. We also discuss the potential of the game to evolve and branch out into other genres while retaining it puzzle elements. When it comes to other games that Fast Travel Games have in the works. We will see Budget Cuts 2, which is a collaboration between Fast Travel and Neat Games, which will be hitting VR Headsets in December. VR fans will be able to play 'The Curious Tale of The Stolen Pets' on 14th of November and we highly recommend it as a game that all ages can enjoy.

Welcome to another episode of SFP-NOW.For this episode Ian and Raissa discuss the latest DC Comics series to come to CW in the form of Batwoman. We also discuss some interesting ideas and theories with regards to Crisis on Infinite Earths. Also briefly discussed how Supergirl seems to be spinning its wheels with very little input into the Crisis storyline, which is leaving Flash and Arrow to most of the heavy lifting.When it comes to Batwoman we discuss how it just seems to be mostly set up for the moment, but not especially spectacular.We also talk about how both DC and Marvel can go about giving us movies and television shows without feeling the need to make it all about the origin stories, and bring up a few examples of old shows that were able to to entertain without the need to give viewers the origin beyond brief glimpses in the opening credits much like was done on 'The Incredible Hulk' TV series.We close out the episode with a discussion on recent BIG Finish Audio releases such as the final box set in the 8th Doctor series Ravenous as well as the new reboot for 'Space 1999'.So tune in and feel free to join the discussion via comments.
