Completely Machinima Interview: M dot Strange on Nightmare Puppeteer

Ricky Grove Interview, Machinima, Podcast October 26, 2021 Leave a reply



Ricky has been writing a series of articles on working with Nightmare Puppeteer, a game whose function is to allow you to create machinima movies. This is for renderositymagazine.com. As part of the series, he interviewed the developer and filmmaker, M dot Strange (a name he doesn’t like, so we came up with Animan Puncture). We spoke with him about the game and his new film, M doll, which was originally supposed to premiere in an interactive version on Steam on October 29, 2021. But just after this interview took place, Steam removed the game, and M dot is, well, steamed about it! I’m sure he’ll come up with a new distributor, but the date will probably be moved back.

Tracy, Ricky, and Damien are back (Phil is still out) with fun coverage of recent machinima and machinima-related news. From the Reallusion Lip-Sync contest to a bizarre indie game called “Heal Hitler”, the three of us share news that is inspired and often quite weird.

Let’s Play – Shooting a scene in Nightmare Puppeteer

Ricky Grove Machinima August 26, 2021 Leave a reply

All four of us at Completely Machinima decided to each to a short Let’s Play video. My choice was to shoot a scene in M dot Strange’s game Nightmare Puppeteer (on Steam at $4.99). After creating a puppet in Adobe Character Animator (another program I like very much), I use that character to narrate my Let’s Play inside of Nightmare Puppeteer. If you are interested in either of the programs just click the highlights and you can find out more.
