I've got on my 'to do' list for 2016 'bring back Nightlight Productions'. I've got Lost Cause III completely recorded and need to sit down and produce it...
... and now I've lost the domain name.
Hi guys. Any chance of the hosted sites coming back. Or at least... my hosted site? I've actually finished the final episode of the Monkey Island radio play I was working on.
So yeah... Nightlight Productions seems to be gone. Not sure when or why that happened. Hmmm...
You know what's annoying about that? I finally finished the last part of The Power of Monkey Island. It's all ready to go.
The next Nightlight Productions radio series, Pharaoh: Walking in Memphis, is currently getting underway. The scripts have been written and cast, and recording is in three days time.
Unlike the others this one won't be free on the website, so if you've ever enjoyed a Nightlight Production, appreciate good comedy, or wouldn't mind hearing a comedy radio series, please consider supporting the crowd-funding.
And don't forget, there's still plenty of free radio plays tucked away in a quiet corner of Mojo's hosting on Nightlight Productions.
Check, check one two...
Not sure when Mojo went down... any chance it'll be back before Christmas? I'm hoping to post, believe it or not, new content.
Here's a novel idea, why don't I post on the forum...
Hi everyone who might stumble in here and read this.
Ah, 2012. Quite a year, eh? Well... not for Nightlight Productions, but still. Those Mayans gave us a run for our money!
Despite what it looks like on Nightlight, I've been a busy guy this year. I turned 32, I travelled to Europe, I met Gabez, I worked full time, I did a lot of journalism work on the side... plus all the stuff that goes along with married life. You guys get it, right?
And then... I'll be honest with you... it's really hard to edit together a radio play these days. In the old days (pre 2005) making a radio play involved wandering into the university radio station, bothering the people who work there, and going into a recording studio. That's where I got my actors from, and editing was a matter of clipping out what works and mixing in sound effects.
These days, living on the other side of the country and using voice talent from all over the world, I get to work with some great talent but editing involves mixing every individual line. It's a painstaking, slow process that I have little time to devote to.
As much as this sounds like I'm giving up though, I'm not. I love making radio plays too much to throw it away. I'm six parts through a story that I'm determined to finish, in the least. So what does that mean?
Next year I'm trying something new. It's too soon to let out too many details, but let's just say that there will be new radio plays, the way they should be.
The Power of Monkey Island will eventually be finished - in fact, part 7 is complete, and will be up before the end of the year if the server reappears. Not only that, but the script for part 8 is done. But it won't be the only thing coming.
In the meantime, following me on Twitter is a good way to know what I'm up to: I'm @nightlightguy
And my other website, where I repost my journalism efforts is Matt Smith's End of the Spectrum. When you see how busy I am there, cut me a bit of slack.
Great to see some life stirring in a hosted site! Wasn't thrillville something to do with roller coasters?
Currently I'm getting nothing...
Nightlight was down for a while there as well. And now it seems to be denying that there was ever a 'Power of Monkey Island, Part 6'. Strange.
Heck, the file isn't even there any more. I didn't imagine the entire thing, did I?
Hmmm... how does that work? You get a download code for the platform of your choice? If you buy the 'physical copy' option, do you get a physical mac version?
This is the flaw of kickstarter - it's a 'throw everything at the wall and see what sells' option.
Of course, I'm just jealous because I'm in Australia and they won't let me post my campaign.
As much as I love the Leisure Suit Larry franchise, I'm bound to the mac. Since, at the moment, they're only developing PC, that counts me out of the kickstart pledge.
It worries me a bit as well that what, eight months since the announcement, they finally decide to put it on kickstarter... and they've still only got the one room to show for it.
What happened to the Sam and Max series?
Yep, thanks for the great feedback.
Part 4 of the swashbuckling radio play 'The Power of Monkey Island' is now online!
Listen in wonder as the trial of LeChuck continues, and Guybrush calls his second witness. Meanwhile, Carl the Swordmaster of Jambalaya Island visits the Voodoo Lady after a mysterious summons.
I liked it, but I'll have to watch it again before I see part 2. As much as I love those throwaway lines, it's a shame that we don't get to see those potential storylines at some point!
The Power of Monkey Island, Part 03 is now online! And so begins the trial of the Zombie Pirate LeChuck...
Wow ... I was prepared to write this off as just another well-intentioned but ultimately lame act of fan-fiction. Whoops! To my delight, it actually sounds more or less like Sam & Max -- not just the voices, but the tone and humor! If Purcell gave his blessing here, I can see why! Great job. I'll be paying attention to see how it turns out.
Write off a Nightlight production? Clearly you've never heard of the website.
Thanks, Gabez. I think my 'Max' is straying close to 'Tomas' (from Tierra) but that's a bit unavoidable!
Nightlight Productions proudly presents (and with the blessing of Steve Purcell) a Sam & Max radio play!
Please head on over to Nightlight Productions and have a listen. Hope you like it.
(and yes, The Power of Monkey Island will also continue...)
New Nightlight radio play: The Power of Monkey Island continues over at Nightlight Productions with part 2!
Happy to provide LeChuck;s voice, if you need it. I've played the role in 'Beneath Monkey Island' and now 'The Power of Monkey Island' on Nightlight.
I shall get the ouija board (ie DM him...)
Almost scared to ask, but do you know how I would do that?

Hmmm, is Nightlight Productions there? I'm not sure what the subdomain would be (sorry, it's been a while. :S)
