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".

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!

The Most Ridiculous Games Ever Made

February 11th, 2020

Episode 62: This week Paul takes us through some of the most absurd and bizarre games that were ever published. We invite you to sit back, relax and marvel at that fact that hard work and actual money went into making games that let you the player- be a slave to a boy band, fight crime with dance as a pop-star, fall down a toilet and dodge fecal matter to stay alive, play a clown that beats up baby penguins and so much more.

Ep. 56 - Ultima 7: how awesome is/was it?

December 24th, 2019

Ultima 7 is regarded by many as one of if not actually the best RPGs of all time. But is this just nostalgia speaking? What would it be like to play it today? Paul played a bit of it recently in preparation for the Richard Garriott interview, which he unfortunately missed, but it would be a shame to let that research go to waste. Find out what an Ultima 7 noob has to say to a veteran.

Our cyberpunk series was not a hit, so we decided to double-down on a game nobody's invested in. This is a game. And this is an episode about that game.

Ep. 50 - Blade Runner (the adventure game)

November 12th, 2019

It is November 2019, which means that Blade Runner is now a present-day documentary! Back in the late 90s, people regarded the PC game adaptation as the last great point and click adventure game. Today, we know that's not true, but why did people think that? We discuss that!
