We've decided to accept voice messages from listeners for all future episodes. Our show is all about discussions and we try to invite people who seemed to be interested in our month's game to the show, but we figured, maybe some people don't want to be present for the whole recording, but still have something to contribute.
So, if you want to share your opinion, experience or trivia about the game we're going to cover in an upcoming episode, we're now accepting voice messages.
Simply record your message and e-mail it to us. Our address is: .
We spent our July playing Jill of the Jungle, one of the big milestones in PC gaming history for making Epic Megagames actually "mega" and allowing them to build all those future games we all so dearly love.
But is Jill itself a noteworthy game? Or do we need the rose-tinted glasses of nostalgia to enjoy it? Opinions seem to differ and this episode surely doesn't lack controversy.
Joining hosts Martijn ("Tijn") and Florian ("rnlf") in this episode is our old and new record holder in episode appearances, David ("DavidXNewton"), who is a real connoisseur when it comes to Epic MegaGames, as he's made a video series in which he's played every single one of their earliest games, all the way up to Unreal. Also on the show is brand new member Felix ("KewlioMZX"), who also hosts a weekly radio show about video games and chiptune music over at Squarewave Symphony. Florian & Martijn were recently invited onto that show to talk about DOS Game Club, so it seems only fair to invite Felix on our show as well.
Also a shoutout to our other member David ("EvilCommieDictator"), who was so kind to send us a voice message. Thanks! If you also want to contribute a voice message, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org

Last June we spent playing our first text adventure with the club. Incredible that we never did one before, so good thing we got that sorted. It's a genre that can be difficult to get into, so we decided to pick a very accessible game: Frederik Pohl's Gateway, by Legend Entertainment, released in June 1992.
Another first is that every single club member in the podcast actually managed to beat the whole game! Many of us finished the sequel as well. Amazing! Joining hosts Martijn ("Tijn") and Florian ("rnlf") in this episode are returning members Esko ("Firefyte") and Richard ("Pix"), accompanied by brand new member John ("Shattered").

Greetings DOS fans,
Last May we featured not one, but many games. All of the same genre: PINBALL!
Helping Florian ("rnlf") and Martijn ("Tijn") out are two very knowledgeable experts. First of all DGC regular Tim ("Spacefarer"), who has made an elaborate video series covering the history of pinball videogames, from the very basic beginnings all the way up to the most sophisticated games. And last but not least Kris ("Gemini" / "Pixelmusement"), who you might know as the host of the Ancient DOS Games YouTube show, among other things. Apart from covering various pinball games on his show over the years, Kris is also an avid real-life pinball player and even competes in ranked tournaments.
Also thanks to DGC member Esko ("Firefyte") for sending in a voice message!
In the episode we cover all sorts of pinball-related subjects, but the main games we're diving into are:
- * Pinball Construction Set (1983, Bill Budge)
- * Macadam Bumper / Pinball Wizard (1985, ERE Informatique)
- * Pinball Dreams (1992, Digital Illusions)
- * Epic Pinball (1993, Epic Megagames)
- * Psycho Pinball (1994, Codemasters)
- * Pro Pinball series (1995-1999, Cunning Developments)
- * Pinball Builder (1996, 21st Century Entertainment)
- * Star Trek Pinball (1998, SCi Games)

Welcome to my death machine, interloper!
My plans have come to fruition
prematurely, quite to my satisfaction. You have my thanks, hacker. Let me show you the destruction podcast episode you I have brought upon the planet Earth.
Martijn and Florian are joined by David ("evilcommiedictator") and Jozef ("yozy") in their fight against SHODAN in Looking Glass' 1994 hit game System Shock.
Look at you, hacker. A pathetic creature of meat and bone. Panting and sweating as you
run through my corridors listen to our podcast. How can you challenge a perfect immortal machine?

We still haven't quite caught up with our schedule, but we're getting there. One step along the way is this episode in which we discuss Parallax Software's 1995 hit game Descent - the game we played back in March.
Martijn and Florian are joined by Elias ("pumpuli"), Rami ("JikissGamer") and Jonathan ("microwerx") in an attempt to save earth from an alien computer virus by blowing up asteroids. Sounds crazy? Sure, but it's also a lot of fun.
