Absurd Ventures, a new entertainment company founded by Dan Houser, is set to release its first original audio fiction series, "A Better Paradise Volume One: An Aftermath," in partnership with QCODE. The series, which will premiere on June 10, 2024, on all major podcast platforms, is the first story in an expansive new universe created and written by Houser.

"A Better Paradise Volume One: An Aftermath" is a 12-episode audio drama series that tells the story of the ill-fated development of an ambitious but addictive digital game-world project led by inventor and psychologist Dr. Mark Tyburn. The series features a talented cast, including Andrew Lincoln, Shamier Anderson, Paterson Joseph, and Rain Spencer.

In addition to the audio series, Absurd Ventures and the team are developing multiple projects set in the "A Better Paradise" universe, including additional audio fiction seasons, television, and video game titles.

Dan Houser, Absurd Ventures Founder and CEO, expressed his excitement about the new medium, stating, "I have always loved the intimate experience of audiobooks, radio and podcast dramas. Audio fiction feels like a really compelling way to tell the story of the A BETTER PARADISE universe and the characters within it.”

QCODE CEO, Rob Herting, shared his enthusiasm for the partnership, saying, “We are incredibly excited to be a production partner to Dan and the Absurd Ventures team, who bring a completely unique voice to the audio fiction medium. Their record in storytelling is legendary, and they have created a universe and a series that lives up to that high standard.”

Absurd Ventures has released an official trailer on all major audio platforms and a visual trailer on their social media channels, offering a first listen and glimpse into this terrifying new world. Listeners can follow "A Better Paradise" now on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Amazon Music, and other podcast platforms to be notified when the series launches and to never miss an episode.
