Day Three - Jenna Sharpe is Naija

Jenna and Friends

The Seven Days of Aquaria continue! Yesterday I put up a music sample mix and the day before Derek showed off some luscious concept art. This two-way interview was recorded yesterday, but was slated to be released today - which is good timing.

This is a conversation I had with Jenna over Skype about working on the game, going to the IGF - and all manor of strange and amusingly inane topics. The IGF finalists for this year were just announced, so its pretty good timing!

I love behind the scenes style commentary and ramblings and the like - if you do too, then hopefully you’ll get something out of this. :) Its about 58 minutes long having being edited a bit for flow. (and to protect the innocent… somewhat)

Alec & Jenna Two-Way Interview: Check it out!

Also mentioned in the above chat is Jenna’s Studio Diary. (btw her old website design was much nicer!)

( I think somehow at one point it sounds like I’m saying that Introversion was trying to suggest a dress code. That’s totally not what I meant! I was referring to the IGF ceremony organizers. But I did poke fun at IV for being better dressed than everyone else in IGF history. :) )

    Cool! Will listen to it right now!


  2. Xiagan Says:

    56 minutes. That’s long, but it’s worth it. You learn about Derek’s qualities at female voice acting, about crYstals, beavers and fighting pidgeons and about the next game (again, fighting pidgeons) and a lot of other stuff I won’t mention now because you should listen to it yourself. :)

  4. D3stiny_Sm4sher Says:

    Nice! I was hoping we’d get something like this.

    I’ll give it a listen tonight while I’m doing homework.

  5. Luciferin Says:

    Wow, I love it when I hear about another random person who thought FF8 was fantastic. Anyone know anything about this fan dub which Jenna mentioned in the first 2 minutes?

    Okay, I’m back to listening. The 7 days of Aquaria is the best season ever!

  6. BMcC Says:

    Owls?! OWLS!!

    *runs off*

  7. crukid Says:

    Wow, even Brits make fun of the way Canadian’s say, “about”! Priceless! Fantastic chat, thank you! :)

  8. crukid Says:

    er, “Canadians”

  9. Redemption Says:

    “Alec, I’d just like to say you’re a…..”

    A WHAT? Tell Us!!!!!!!!!!!!

    P.S. In case anyone was wondering, I live in England and so I can confirm that people here really are obssessed with beavers and crystals. Also, my old Japanese pen pal was right when he said all English people drink tea and have long noses.

  10. Data Says:

    Ha, I took that photo!

  11. MedO Says:

    And I thought Xiagan was only joking…

    Nice interview! Not really all that informative, but a lot of fun to listen to anyway.

    Next week on TIGSource: Beaver-Game Competition?

  12. Affliction Says:

    Haha, this interview is a hysterical trainwreck, in a good way. Maybe shoulda been cut off at around 30 minutes. Still, I listened to it all and had a good laugh. Thanks, Jenna and Alec!

    PS. Beavers vs. Computer

  13. Alec Says:

    Dan: Sorry, I forgot to ask you if I could use that picture! I added a credit and link though. ^_^

  14. alspal Says:

    Nice interview.. despite being so incredibly long.

  15. Bartimaeus Says:

    Typical. A great interview, and we miss the very last word. :)

    Oh well… I hope the game goes great! :D

  16. illithid235 Says:

    Really interesting, that bit Jenna said about potentially running out of ideas. There could be a LONG debate about that.
    My two cents: No, we’ll never run out of ideas. But there’s very VERY little that is totally new.. human culture just builds on the old, adding little patches of new here and there. Art is very evolutionary, I think. So no, we’ll never run out of ideas, as long as humanity keeps changing like it has for our entire history.

  17. Alec Says:

    17: i agree with that outlook! it seems like everything evolves and ideas bounce off each other to create what we consider to be “new” ideas.

  18. Kevin Says:

    Hey, if it only sells two copies, I’m definitely going to be one of the buyers. :-p

  19. Hiro Says:

    Downloading….1 hour 30 minutes to go. -_-
    From what I’m reading here….:D

  20. MedO Says:

    There’s a story about Johannes Brahms being asked by a friend if all the great songs had maybe already been written. They were standing at the shore, and Brahms pointed to the water and said “Look, here comes the last wave.”

    I think there will always be original new games, because the cultural context always changes, and new games will come that you wouldn’t even consider now. In a few decades, there might be stuff as weird to us now as Radiohead would have been to Mozart.

  21. Tr00jg Says:

    Hey, there’s Grumpy McGee. lol. Was that how incredibly close their stand was to yours?

  22. Derek Says:

    Grumpy McGee…

    Skin like shoe leather, teeth like rotted corn, voice like a rasp on a pumpkin.

    The legend is REAL. His hate burns for all eternity. :O

  23. Zeno, Internetographer Says:

    The ??? man looks so sad, like he’s about to cry. How can anyone be sad at IGF?

  24. Al King Says:

    24, I think a beaver is gnawing his foot. Also, awesome interview!

  25. Tr00jg Says:

    The ??? is probably thinking: “Gosh… why did I buy game X when in a year’s time I will get this awesome game for $30″.

    Yeah, the interview is awesome. I like the giggling.

  26. Tosheros Says:

    Intersting, eventhough I didn’t understood everything. ^^

  27. Alec Says:

    Cool. :)

  28. illithid235 Says:

    Sooo… what’s the story on Grumpy McGee? I was kinda curious about it before, but now I’m intrigued.
