Escape Pod 833: The Heroine Kokofe

Author : Ife J. Ibitayo
Narrator : Mofiyinfoluwa Okupe
Host : Tina Connolly
Audio Producer : Adam Pracht 

Escape Pod 833: The Heroine Kokofe is an Escape Pod original.

What a surprise to see this story here! I critiqued it at critters.org by the end of 2020. So nice to see that the author managed to sell it, and to no less than Escape Pod! And I saw that he even made some of the changes that I pointed out (some of my suggestions he just downright ignored, but I guess that's part of the game :P). I critiqued many stories at critters, but that’s the first time I’ve seen one of them actually getting published. I like to think that I helped. I’m proud.

Back when I wrote the critique, I told the author that his story reminded me of the game Horizon: Zero Dawn. The tall grass, the crouch-run, and especially the setting, with tribal people hunting monsters. I’ve beaten Horizon: Forbidden West just a couple weeks ago so it’s all still fresh in my mind. The people adoring holograms of dead people is something that is done a lot in this latest installment.
