ASMRRequests, a popular YouTube channel for ASMR (hit the link if you’re unaware of what ASMR is) videos, has finally released the highly anticipated second episode of Departure. The latest episode, named Frontiers, is now available, and you can watch it down below. The creator of the series, Ally, also had some exciting announcements.
The video below picks up right after the first video, which was released 10 months ago. A ton of work has been put into the video, and has a runtime of about 30 minutes.
Given the ‘world’ the Departure series is set it, there are a lot of sci-fi elements, many of which sound like Ingress terminology. Exotic matter, controlling consciousness, and all of that jazz can be found in the video, which is very enjoyable. But I won’t ruin it for you. Check it out yourself below!
At the end of the video, Ally announced that she has started a new Patreon page for those who would like to give her voluntary monthly donations. For those who do not know what Patreon is, it’s provides a way for content creators like Ally to accept monthly donations in small increments, unlike Kickstarter, which is used for crowdfunding a large amount of money by a specific date. Given the time and effort put forth in creating the videos, especially with the quality of effects used in like the Departure series, we’re glad to see such a great response. So far, monthly contributions have reached nearly $2,000 a month, which is exciting enough, but what Ally plans to do with said money is even more exciting.
With the donated money, Ally is looking to produce higher-quality content, as you’d expect, but she’s also has an ambitious goal of eventually creating a ASMR video series specifically for the Oculus Rift! Such a series with the Oculus Rift would be a great combination, offering up a great immersive experience. That’s pretty damn cool if you ask us.
