Really liked the inclusion of the original derelict transmission audio. Wasn't a fan of Mother's sassy attitude. The Captain needs a bit more emotion in her voice as at the moment she comes across fairly flat and monotonous. So does John, but the reason why is obvious enough there.
I really dug that transmission! I'm not a massive fan of the redone version for the Director's Cut (accidentally wrote Derelict's Cut first the time) so I did love hearing that! I think your sound design is really great too - having things like this, Lance's recordings from 2010 and all the actual Alien sound effects worked really well for keeping it grounded in Alien. Really really liked that.
Same for the re-use of the Alien music. Normally I'm a little hesitant about the re-use of soundtracks in fan-made productions but I think it worked really well in here.
I actually liked Mother's attitude. I was gutted they deleted the sass from Alien: Covenant. There's something about giving AI attitudes that I enjoy but I can understand why others may not like it so much. I thought the same of John until I eventually realized why.
I'm really looking forward to Part 2! I will be front-paging this shortly and sharing to our socials. How many episodes do you envision you'll be releasing and what sort of release schedule are you aiming for?
I can't play alien isolation, my computer would be top of the line in north Korea, but I have all the ripped sound effects. And all the sounds from Aliens CM. Not a single one of the audio files is labelled. They're all numbered. It is an absolute nightmare to find what I need. It took hours to find the PUPS sound effect they used in colonial marines for part 2. How hard would it have been to name them?
Anyway, yes MUTHUR is designed to be a little more Human, but still obviously just be an obsolete computer. It's explained why she is the way she is later.
John is NOT David or Walter, he's a unique design and is more sophisticated than David was. So no, he does not look like Michael Fassbender as some people have asked.
Reusing music is simply a given. I can't compose my own and using anything else would not work at all.
The captain will practically not shut up in part 2. She wasn't in this much so there wasn't much to emote anyway.
A teaser for part 2: flute.
