Hatoful crew, assemble! We need to figure this out, guys.
As xaq has informed us, HolidayStar is coming. Obviously we are going to cover this. The question is ... how?
I know that I had said in the end of my Hatoful Livestream that I would retire after that and let someone else do HolidayStar, just because I don't want to hog all the spotlight or anything. davidn seemed to have a lot of fun with his mirror playthrough of the exact section of BBL he missed when I did it, so one possibility is to turn everything over to him. Of course, I understand other people wanting to get in on the action, too--it really is fun to do, to the point where I kind of want to jump back in, now, too.
My proposal: make it a show with however many cohosts. One person will be the one "driving" in that they're the one sharing their screen and clicking the buttons, but which decisions we actually pick would be a collaborative agreement. Voices would be divvied up so everyone gets a few characters, based on maximizing their strengths and letting someone else cover their weaknesses. (For example, I felt I had a fairly distinctive "voice" for Sakuya and Nageki, and maybe Okosan, but absolutely nothing for anyone else. If anyone does a better, say, Yuuya than me, please tag in and take over there.)
Is this technologically feasible? Is there a service that would let however many people participate in a conference call type arrangement, with one person sharing the screen, and the service recording the whole thing? If so, then I propose THE HATOFUL CREW HOLIDAYSTAR SHOW ... or something.
Also, would such a service be able to handle international stuff? I think of four people as being the main core Hatoful group, and of those four, we have three Americans (though one is in Alaska, which sometimes does or does not count depending on which exact service we're talking about) and a Canadian. If you expand it to people who I know would totally be up for something like this, except time zone differences/scheduling conflicts/etc. might make guaranteed weekly appearances tricky, then there are people from UK and such, I think.
Obviously there would be some figuring things out, since we're going in blind and have no way of knowing who any of the potential new characters are, let alone which of us should voice them and how. We can probably figure out the main eight Hatoful birds in advance and be ready for them if they reappear in HolidayStar, but other than that, I anticipate a lot of waiting for/being surprised by the sudden appearance of random new characters, and ... winging it (sorry) from there. Of course, it's easy enough to just announce a bunch of "attention people from the future watching these: the first couple episodes might be a bit weird in retrospect depending on what we figure out later" disclaimers. Hell, Sakuya's first and second appearances in episode one of my Hatoful stream didn't even have the Pidgeworth accent! So, you know, these things happen.
Anyway, my point is that this could be the best show ever if we can figure out a way to do it.
