We just received the following communique from the “Civilized” podcast. This looks to be really interesting!
You’ve got interstellar mail.
Award-winning producers select AWeber and launch a choose-your-own-adventure-style audio fiction story using email.
HAMILTON, ON – The Hamilton-based power team of Eli McIlveen and Sean Howard announce the launch of an interactive experience that tells the back story to their acclaimed dark sci-fi comedy podcast, Civilized. For the first time, fans of the show can become a part of the story and learn about the crew’s first alien contact during their fateful voyage.
“The audience plays the role of an alien whose remote spore has initiated first contact with the crew,” explains Eli. “Every morning, our fans will receive an interstellar email with a new audio file and a new choice to make. Their choices will lead them to a unique two-part ending. There are eight dramatic endings to be explored.”
“Choosing to work with AWeber was a no-brainer,” says Sean. “Their platform allowed us to weave 23 fully-produced minisodes into an amazing interactive experience.”
Anyone can participate, starting on October 16, by visiting: civilizedpod.com/choose
