Sanitarium - Psychological Point-and-Click Horror

October 12th, 2021

This week we sit down to talk about Sanitarium because it's October and everything is spooky we all decided. This psychological thriller is a favorite to those who have played and worth playing to those who haven't. Or least worth being told about it, by us, for maybe a little too much time. Anyway we hope you enjoy listening!

 

Also, apologies for some unpolished sound quality, we had a bit of trouble with our hosting provider that night.

References vs Easter Eggs - where is the line drawn?

May 25th, 2021

Episode 124: It started with what should have been a minor detail in a larger conversation but we fixated on tiny semantics and agreed to talk it out in an episode - so, what is the difference between a reference and an Easter egg, and where in the overlap does it stop being one and start being the other?

Les Manley in: Search For The King - the dollar store Leisure Suit Larry

December 1st, 2020

Episode 101: That hiatus was inadvertent, but it was nice to have a break! Ric's mic is currently out of commission so his sound quality takes a hit as he makes do with a cheap headset. Oh and by the way, we talk about Les Manley a bit. If this write-up makes Les Manley sound rather irrelevant, then you pretty much understand his role in gaming history.

The Blackstone Chronicles - you’d be crazy not to play it

October 27th, 2020

Episode 98: In the final entry of our October horror series, Anna and Paul played The Blackstone Chronicles, an undiscovered gem well worth the effort that is required to play it on a modern day system. Ric did not play the game, but somehow that doesn't stop him from talking.

Interview with Ken Williams and SURPRISE GUEST Roberta Williams (Sierra On-Line)

September 17th, 2020

Episode 92: The interview that Paul, Anna, and Ric never thought would happen! Our guest this week is none other than the legendary Ken Williams, co-founder of Sierra On-Line and author of the upcoming book "Not All Fairy Tales Have Happy Endings". Much to our shock we are surprised with a special appearance by the notoriously elusive Roberta Williams to talk about what she's been working on lately!

What were their favourite projects? What Quest series almost happened but didn't? What did Roberta think of the King's Quest reboot? Which big time gaming companies were almost bought by Sierra? We have your answers in this extra long and extra special episode!

Great Games That Forgot To Be Fun

September 8th, 2020

Episode 90: When you describe a game as great, that would generally imply that the game is also fun, right? If you ask us (which you didn't, but hey), these games didn't get the memo.
