A deserted island... a lost man... memories of a fatal crash... a book written by a dying explorer. Dear Esther is a ghost story told using first-person gaming technologies. Rather than traditional gameplay, the focus here is on exploration, uncovering the mystery of the island, of who you are and why you are here. Fragments of story are randomly triggered by moving around the environments, making every telling unique. Features a stunning, specially commissioned soundtrack. Forget the normal rules of play; if nothing seems real here, it's because it may just be all a delusion. What is the significance of the aerial - What happened on the motorway - is the island real or imagined - who is Esther and why has she chosen to summon you here? The answers are out there, on the lost beach and the tunnels under the island. Or then again, they may just not be, after all...
Wills and DogMeat from Jailbreak Source join us this week and we try out a new recording technique.

A slight delay this week, but still with in the “sometime late Sunday or during Monday” guidelines we try to stick to. The reason for the delay is a new recording technique we are trying, utilising Skype and CallBurner for recording and then editing with Adobe Audition instead of our usual method of recording with Ventrilo and editing with Audacity.
