We’re a podcast that remakes the movies that let you down.
We use a variety of roleplaying and storytelling games to make each movie into a mini-series. Each series has a new guest star, a new featured indie musical artist on the soundtrack, and a new game to play. We also crack many wises.
You can start with any movie you want; no need to go all the way back to the beginning (in fact, we recommend it)!
Each series starts with “Rookie Camp,” where we go over the basics of the game we’re playing and talk about why we’re remaking that particular movie. Each series ends with “Rehash,” a retrospective episode where we stack our remake up against the original movie.
Our remakes are all different sizes; some are a single episode, while our longest remake clocks in at a dozen, not counting Rookie Camp and Rehash.
Roleplay Retcon was created by three friends: Jensie, Alex, and Ben. They team up with their friends, family, and some other special guests to make the magic happen. Since most roleplaying games require a Game Master (GM) to run things, the core cast rotates this duty, becoming that movie’s “Director.”
Ben’s a professional writer, Jensie’s a theatre director and drama teacher, and Alex has experience with over a dozen game systems, not even counting the ones we use on the show.
Frequently Asked Questions
I made a game. Will you play it?
We can’t promise we’ll play it on the show, but we want to hear from you! If you send us a game, we’ll thank you in a mid-roll break no matter what.
