In this episode we are joined by fellow 80’s militaria collectors from Oldschool Reenactment. We talk about their Instagram page and why they collect 80’s era militaria as well as US kit and the new 80’s re-enacting community.
My special guest is Mixtape who runs the War Aesthetics community on Youtube and Discord.
He told me about his success on YouTube and his time in the Canadian military, including that time he passed out in NBC gear.
Our special guest today is Patron Jordan aka SPITFIRE on Discord.
He asked us a bunch of questions about production of the game and when we will release a playable demo - as well as discussing NBC gear, NVA snot - and putting a strong vote on team waffles.
We conclude that we are all insane.
More questions from Patreon and banter about collecting militaria and consoles from the 1980s.
Escalation 1985 is a World War 3 shooter for PC developed by an indie team from across the world.
We start this episode with a soundscape that introduces our awesome voice actors for the US Army. Pete Peterson is a voice actor from Rochester, New York and Will Newton was an RTO in the war in Afghanistan.
We answer question from Patreon on scopes, destructible environments and the healing system. Lukas explains about antidotes to chemical weapons that might actually kill you.

We take questions from our Patreons about what inspires us, damage modeling,the recent photo shoot we had and the smell of old uniforms. More importantly, we try to settle the debate about pancakes vs waffles.
The developers and historical advisor talk about the game and some of its features. We also talk about what it's like to wear a rubber NBC suit, the game's morale system, nuclear weapons and other things related to what it would have been like had the Cold War gone Hot and World War 3 broken out in 1985.
