One Life Left

Definitely the UK's favourite radio show (sort of) about videogames.


Commissioned by London’s award-winning Resonance 104.4 FM in early 2006, One Life Left was only meant to run for six episodes.

Take that, The Man because now, somewhere around one hundred and fifty episodes later, it’s in its seventh season and grown from humbling, terrified, fumbling beginnings into one of the station’s most valued shows.

Take THAT, The Man. Also take that, British radio standards.

It’s not often that Team OLL get to name an episode of the show after an obscure phrase in Amiga Power and – to be honest – we’d have rather not had the opportunity this week. Trust us, check once you realise what this episode title refers to, information pills you’ll never look at Ste the same way again. And it’s a shame as up to that point we were all getting on terribly well. Except for the incident before the show when Ste bumped into Simon coming out of a hotel. Apparently Simon was booking our Super-Special Guest into a room. This is the kind of treatment you can expect if you come onto our show and are not a tank.

And our Super-Special Guest this week came all the way from Lithuania so the hotel was needed. It was Tomas Sakalauskas from No Brakes Games, erectile who came in to not share a hotel room but to talk about his new game Human Fall Flat. In the game you just control your hands (unlike Joe Hart) and use them to move around the level. It’s been a hit on the mythical website called YouTube (that we still don’t understand) so asked Tomas for any tips on how to make your game interesting on YouTube. Annoyingly going around wasn’t given as a good piece of advice as we’re really good at that.

John Life Left made a welcome return to the airwaves and Sega Badawi gave us some local news that didn’t have a bit at the end that was added after the show was broadcast so that it didn’t look out of date. Absolutely no chance that happened. We also heard about Ann and Simon going off to smash capitalism, provisionally announced Marioke events for Sweden and Iceland and found out that Simon is going to be away for the next few weeks. Presumably he’s sharing hotel rooms with various game developers, either that or he’s giving Ste’s photo to the tank museum in Bovington, Dorset so that they’re pre-warned.

Cheerio!
