Unlocked – Episode 7: Proud Parent
Episode seven opens two years after episode six and Anton Eadas awakes in a strange makeshift body to find the world has been unmade.

Unlocked – Episode 8: Cat’s In The Cradle
In an effort to be more than just a screen with a face, Anton works with John and Zoey to create a suit he can upload himself into.

For our group.. this is how the world ends.

Analysing her options, Zoey has a crisis of faith. Meanwhile John’s rebels are ambushed en route to Jak’s lair by zealots driven insane by the wasteland. Unlike disputes in the past, respawns are no longer available, meaning characters will die. Brace yourselves.
Unlocked – Episode 11: The Part Where He Kills You
Alex, Pip, Zoey and a digital Anton reach Jak’s lair with the hope of somehow taking out his modding screens and ending the madness.. that is, if they can get through the front door.
One of the great things about Unlocked is the wealth of references, quotes and products that we intersperse throughout the series. It’s a little reward for those with keen eyes and nods to those who.. basically.. like the things we like. But we’re an inclusive group and want to make sure everyone is in on the fun, so we created the Homage-O-Meter: a comprehensive guide to so much of the subtext and layering that goes into each and every episode of Unlocked. Enjoy.
