Just so everyone knows: Midst is a narrative audio series created by Third Person (an anonymous trio of creators) and originally began airing in audio formats in 2020, and CR are rereleasing it under their label. The CR site: "We’re thrilled to announce something very different and exciting… a new narrative audio series that we’ve brought into the fold - MIDST! Originally released in 2020, Midst is an immersive, semi-improvised sci-fantasy series in which three mysterious and unreliable narrators spin a tale about complicated antiheroes making bad decisions in a world on the edge of disaster. We’re truly such fans of this story and the talented creators behind it: an anonymous trio known collectively as Third Person. Through this partnership, Midst will be completely re-released! In addition to the audio format, which has been fully remastered with updated sound and music, we’ll also be presenting beautiful, lightly-animated video editions of EVERY episode, featuring all-new artwork from a variety of stupendously-talented artists including Ricardo Bessa, Lenka Simeckova, Sam Bosma, Artem Chebokha, Lap Pun Cheung, Will Kirkby, and more! Critical Role has always believed in the positive impact of storytelling and we’re excited to have the opportunity to amplify stories beyond the world of Exandria while empowering these innovative creatives! Join us April 11th on your favorite podcast app, our Critical Role JPvid Channel or the Midst website (coming soon). If we’ve piqued your interest, dear reader, please read on to uncover everything you need to know about Midst!"

To add more: They've already recorded two seasons and a third is in production. This is CR's first acquisition of an existing IP under the label of Metapigeon Productions.

Ok, love the critrole itself to death, but definitely glad to see critrole weaving in more experimental and complementary projects, one shots etc. Still waiting to see a spiritual successor to the Taliesin’s Shadow of Crystal Palace one shot though)

I love seeing Critical Role supporting other companies with their platform, bringing these interesting and creative people to light.
MccreesKnees ヶ月 前
They acquired them, so supporting them as well would be the financially viable thing to do
Thurrak ヶ月 前
@MccreesKnees It's awkward how you can make this sound like a bad thing... they are using their platform to give opportunities to smaller projects which is awesome.
Matt Collisson
Matt Collisson ヶ月 前
@Thurrak They're not really "using their platform to give opportunities" they saw something was popular and bought it to make cash lol. Not saying it's a bad thing, just not charity for smaller projects either.

Discovered this podcast about 2 weeks ago and panicked when the feed went down because it had quickly become one of my favorite audio dramas and I was so scared it was just gone. I'm SO excited they're coming back and I'm SO happy they are going to get the recognition they deserve. I'm just sad I have to wait for them to get back to where I was in season 2 😅
authenticpoppy ヶ月 前
I've been following Midst since the beginning, and panicked when the feed went down also. I'm glad that they aren't gone, but jeez, I wish they'd at least left a note on the kitchen table or something.

Ok that's really cool. CR is helping creators with super interesting ideas by sharing on their platform. I had no idea Midst existed before but now I actually can't wait!
"We believe you'll enjoy it, or maybe you won't." More art like that please. Not everyone has to like everything. Bring us weird art that makes you happy to create.

100%, thats my biggest problem with the AAA game scene rn, "everything is a looter shooter, action rpg, survival, story based, fps, gta-like..." type thing. Indie games are the best because most of them find one idea, explore it to its natural conclusion and then move onto the next weird idea.
wings ヶ月 前
I'm going to scream. Midst is my favourite podcast ever and I adore CR I cannot BELIEVE this !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Everyone who's going to start Midst holy crap you've got SUCH a treat coming your way. Best podcast I've ever listened to and probably my favourite piece of fiction of all time. I'm so happy for Third Person they deserve this so much

I've binged the whole thing and I can't wait for the next season. It's such a fun show with a unique narrative style and a lot of well-portrayed, badass, likable characters. It's an audio drama so of course there's more dialogue than anything but when the action does happen, it is narrated so well.

is CR studios straight up gonna introduce the world of audiodramas to a wider audience? eyo? well then, welcome to the absolutely weird and wonderful world of audiodramas, Midst is a pretty great one to rerelease, so sit back and enjoy that weird world and hopefully you find yourself diving into other weird worlds like Archive 81 and Silt Verses

Can't wait for a CritRole One-Shot in the Midst world, and Third Person is playing as well, but they're all wearing masks - or maybe, considering CritRole's new fancy set, they can just keep their faces in the shadows for the whole session.
