Guest Appearance on The Unturned Podcast
Nelson recently made a three-hour-long guest appearance on The Unturned Podcast, discussing a variety of Unturned topics from its roots to its future.
Aptly named, The Unturned Podcast is a community podcast all about Unturned. It is hosted by cucuycharles, staswalle, Trident Games, and Diddlyono. They've uploaded an episode each week this year, often featuring community members as guests. Many content creators, map makers, animators, server networks, and others (including myself) have made an appearance on this podcast.

Zip Zinger! wrote that they "created this with the Unturned editor, and added on animation and particles from Wallpaper Engine." They go on to provide a link to the Steam Workshop upload for using it with Wallpaper Engine.
