Silver Spook talks with Jonas Waever, the Chief Creative Officer of The Nameless Mod, the most epic and well-known Deus Ex total conversion mod of all time. Two veteran Deus Ex modders discuss why Deus Ex 1 still shows up in lists of "top 10 games ever", the historical context of the title, and what an indie cyberpunk FPS-RPG hybrid on par with Deus Ex 1 might look like. (Full disclosure: Silver Spook is currently working on an un-announced Deus Ex 1-like game.)

Other topics include a retrospective on The Nameless Mod by it's director, Terminus Machina (Silver Spook's Deus Ex total conversion), the nature of conspiracy in Deus Ex and how things have changed, takes on Blade Runner/BR 2049, Neuromancer versus Snow Crash, why single player narrative games aren't dead, and games industry shop-talk from two commercial indie game developers.

Same. I almost exclusively listen to podcasts when I’m walking about or traveling to work, and YouTube on iPhone is a terrible combination for that. I’d be listening religiously if the audio was on iTunes or Spotify, but currently I’m behind by almost s many episodes as there have been recorded :-)

In this episode, Christian "Silver Spook" Miller talks to Sophia Park, leader and co-founder of Aether Interactive. Localhost is their most well-known title to date; a great cyberpunk gem and 4th-best selling game on Itch.io in 2017. In Localhost, you play a network administrator whose job it is to erase some corrupted hard drives containing artificial intelligences. To accomplish this, you need to talk to the AIs and convince them to unlock the drives and allow themselves to be deleted.

Topics include:
-Localhost and Aether Interactive's upcoming project, "Subserial Network"
-Techno-mysticism
-Whether an iPhone, the Philip K. Dick robot, or Alexa is conscious.
-Is the technological Singularity and subsequent superintelligent machines out salvation, doom, or something weirder?
-A psychoanalysis of why Elon Musk is launching Teslas into space as a form of mid-life crisis, and what that could mean for all sentient beings.
-What is love, what would the love of synthetic consciousnesses be like.
-What is to be done about billionaires, AI created by billionaires, and possibly billionaire AI?
-What is to be done about the impending electron revolt and socialist Valentine's Day.

In this episode, Christian "Silver Spook" Miller talks to The Space Quest Historian, a well-known promoter and friend of the original Space Quest creators in the adventure game world.  He does regular and very entertaining Youtube Let's Plays, Twitch Streams, seasonal podcasts and is a co-host of The Back Seat Designers (who interviewed John Romero and I am very jealous).

SPOILER ALERT: Skip from 30:00 to 45:00 to avoid spoilers if you haven't played Neofeud!
 
Topics include:

-A "history" of the Space Quest Historian.
-How the point-and-click and adventure game scene has evolved over the course of the past several decades.
-Space Quest Historian's take on Neofeud.
-Silver Spook elaborates on the meaning(s) of the ending of Neofeud, and how that plays into Neofeud 2, currently in production.
-Whether Let's Players and Twitch streamers hurt or help game sales.
-Amayirot Akago's amazing voice acting (also a friend of SQH)
-Whether to call this the "Space Spook Podcast", or perhaps the "Silver Quest Podcast: a Cyberquestorian Adventure-Punk Idle Game."
-Whether Proto-J will be making a guest appearance on the Back Seat Designers at some point in the season to whack them dwanky mu'flakkas. :)

@Hobo: Sorry about that! I told some folks I was gonna get it up Wednesday but I ran into some tough video editing issues (I had 3 cameras and usually just do audio so there were lot of kinks to work out.)

But here it is!
