It’s always a good feeling when the indie creators featured on The Fantasy Network have success. So, we’re thrilled to be able to share the latest good news…

Fiction podcast Ignore City has been nominated for six New Jersey Web Fest 2022 awards, including Outstanding Science Fiction, Best Writing/Script, Best Original Score, Best Original Song, Best Leading Performance, and Best Chemistry.

Ignore Cty tells the tale of a post-apocalyptic future, in which technology has been outlawed and the remaining humans live under a dome to escape the devastated world climate. Deban Rimpa, a scrappy bike messenger, discovers and befriends the head of the sentient robot, Saner 0805. Deban embarks on a grand adventure through Ignore City to save civilization with Saner’s help. That is, unless thugs, bike gangs, black market overlords, government agents, and a precocious 10 year-old girl destroy Saner first!
