Lazlow on Kinda Funny Gamescast with Greg Miller

Check out Lazlow’s conversation with Greg Miller about A Better Paradise, Absurd Ventures and lots more on Kinda Funny Gamescast.

“There's been so many shows and movies about evil AI and we thought… well, these things are making us completely neurotic right?
And so, if an AI was inside a video game, building a world and then escaped and was reading the internet every fraction of a second, it would be as neurotic as we are.”

Listen to the first episodes of A Better Paradise Volume One: An Aftermath

Enter the new world from Absurd Ventures. The premiere of the 12-episode audio fiction series A BETTER PARADISE Volume One: An Aftermath is here. Listen to the first two episodes (“Something Is Playing a Game with Me” and “Everyone Tries to Escape from Paradise”) now, with future episodes coming weekly throughout the summer. Make sure to follow A BETTER PARADISE on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Amazon Music or wherever you get your podcasts to never miss an episode.

Set in the near future, A BETTER PARADISE Volume One: An Aftermath tells the story of the ill-fated development of an ambitious but addictive digital game-world project led by inventor and psychologist Dr. Mark Tyburn. As the advanced software they developed began delivering unexpected and disturbing results, the team fell apart under strange circumstances and the project was abandoned. The game world and the super-intelligence within were discarded, left dormant and undiscovered. Until now.

Created and written by Dan Houser. Directed by Lazlow. Starring Andrew Lincoln, Shamier Anderson, Paterson Joseph and Rain Spencer. Produced in partnership with QCODE.
