Stay tuned here for updates throughout the day!
As we come to close of Alien Day 2018, we'd like to present this re-release of Alien: Proximity with a new audio featurette we've produced just for this occasion. To hear the long, crazy story behind this project, please visit bit.ly/proximityfeaturette.
Perfect Organism is proud to present a groundbreaking new audio drama set in the Alien universe. The culmination of nearly a year of work, Alien: Proximity is a character-driven glimpse into the nightmare that erupted in the Hadley's Hope colony on Acheron in June of 2179.
Written and directed by JM Prater, Alien: Proximity is the story of Anne (Micah Greene) and Aaron (Patrick Greene) Andrews, two young colonists trying to hold it together while the world around them falls apart. With immersive sound design, an orchestral score, and a talented cast of voice actors from around the world, Alien: Proximity is a love letter to the Alien Saga created by people who love it madly and truly.
This is for you. We hope you enjoy it.

The process of creating Alien: Proximity was a journey Perfect Organism will never forget. Now, for the first time, JM, Patrick, and Micah sit down and tell the story behind the story.
JM and Patrick sit down and share their first formal viewing of Ridley Scott's seminal film, ALIEN. This was a really wonderful couple of hours to spend together. We hope that this commentary is as special for all of you, as it was recording it. Pay no attention to the Covenant argument slash discussion that broke out. We couldn't help ourselves. You guys n' gals are amazing people. Without you, there would be no Perfect Organism Podcast.
Gabriel Hardman has had quite the career. From storyboarding films like Inception and Interstellar to drawing Hulk for Marvel, Hardman has established himself as a uniquely gifted voice in visual storytelling. His newest release is a stunning miniseries just released by Dark Horse: Aliens: Dust to Dust. In this extended interview, Patrick and Gabriel go in-depth on the creative process, the nature of working with established intellectual properties, the evolution of the xenomorph's design, and lots more.
We hope you enjoy it, and we hope you're having wonderful Alien Days!

Alien Day 2018 starts with a bang! And a feverish run down a corridor towards a door with a combination I can't figure out while being pursued by hissing creatures in the darkness ...
Fox granted us early access to this wonderful new RPG-style Alexa game. In this minisode, Patrick runs through the basics and shares some of his thoughts.
