Spam Spam Spam Humbug 31 - The Dark Unknown
The Dark Unknown, from The Dark Unknown soundtrack
We have a new follower on Podbean this week: ZTrigger (a podcast about gaming...and books).
And we are also happy to welcome several new members to the Ultima Dragons Facebook group, including: Loren, Shane, Terry, Myke, Norrin, Mike, Chris, and Rudolph. Welcome and SPLUT! to all.
We're publishing this episode early, because on very short notice we were able to get together with Adam Burr, also known as Goldenflame Dragon, who has been working on a browser-based, old-school, tiled RPG called The Dark Unknown for a number of years now. Just under a month ago, he launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds tor some manual art to be composed by the lovely and talented Indi Martin, and he has since raised more than double his base goal.
Here, roughly, are the questions we posted to Adam:
Always remember: If you like Spam Spam Spam Humbug, please leave us a review on iTunes, Stitcher, Podbean, or anywhere else you listen to us. More important than that, however, is to make sure you subscribe to the podcast. This is especially true for iTunes; the more subscriptions a podcast has, the more visible it will be in iTunes. So, even if you subscribe to us using some other, better technology (Pocket Casts, for example), consider subscribing in iTunes (or in the Podcasts app) as well.
There's also the Ultima Codex Patreon. A $1 pledge will get you access to Spam Spam Spam Humbug episodes the day before they go live here on the Ultima Codex, and you'll be helping me both maintain and — with sufficient funding — expand the server infrastructure of the Codex to better deliver all the things you come looking for thereat. You can also support the site by buying computer games through GOG; the Codex is a GOG affiliate. This one is really easy; all you have to do is visit the Codex and click on the GOG banner in the sidebar before you go and buy a game at GOG. You won't pay any more for the game, but we'll get a bit of a commission on the sale.
Also, if you haven't already, you should totally sign on with the Ultima Dragons group on Facebook, or with the Ultima Dragons community on Google+ . The Facebook group is easily the larger and more lively, but that just means that the Google+ one needs a few more members posting content there on a more regular basis. Also, don't forget to contribute to the #udic hashtag if you're on Twitter.
As well, please consider Liking the Facebook page for The Ultima Series, following the Ultima Codex on Twitter, or encircling the Ultima Codex on Google+. And whatever social network you favour, please also consider sharing any content posted to those social media profiles with your own followers and friends; spread the word, spread the Ultima.
Finally, if you'd like to recommend anyone for a shout-out, send us an email...which you can also use to suggest podcast topics, offer commentary or criticism about podcast episodes, and/or to volunteer your time as either an occasional or regular contributor to podcast sessions.
