I have been really enjoying the actual play podcasts I've been listening to with developing stories as well as the emergent story aspects of podcasts like All My Fantasy Children or Atlas of the Unknown World. I've also been wanting to try out more games than I can conceivably form a group for, plus I also enjoy playing solo rpgs.
I had an idea for a podcast that combines all of this into a solo actual play of various systems, including many small indie games and micro-games available here on itch, using GM Emulators or other random brainstorming things to help me play games that weren't intended to be done solo as needed, which also would form interconnected stories as I played more.
An example might be on a quarantined world in a Stars Without Number setting, magic is real and functions for unknown reasons so on that world I can play things like Monsterhearts or Urban Shadows, while in orbit around it or one star system over I can try out most of the #sadmechjam games. Then I can play something weird like one of the quiet journaling games about one of the characters just having dinner. Then I might play Microscope or A Quiet Year set in a related setting and gradually this would build up an ongoing storyline and recurring characters as well as allowing me to sample these games in a more direct way than simply reading the pdf would. Also my Monsterhearts vampire in one game might become the big bad in a Monster of the Week game then show up in a parody episode as I try out playing Toon.
I wonder if there would be any interest in such a thing. I also welcome any feedback, suggestions, games people might want to hear played, etc.
Games I'm currently looking at include Toon, Dying Earth, A Quiet Year, Spindlewheel, all of the Sad Mech Jam games, Left Coast, Monsterhearts, Space Wurm vs Moonicorn, Sprawl, The Veil, Interstial, You Have to Get Dressed, 3x3 Wizard Basketball, and honestly whatever else catches my fancy that I either haven't tried or have an idea for that I also haven't tried.
