We’re now accepting voice messages!

Hey hello!

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: DGC mail address.

Ečstatica

Northern Europe, 928 AD. A thirsty traveler, a wolf howling in the distance, and a seemingly deserted village. Or is it?

Ečstatica is a 3D survival horror game with a very unique look: Instead of polygons, everything is made out of ellipsoids. Join us in our adventure to restore the village and defeat evil demons.

Martijn (Tijn) and Florian (rnlf) are accompanied on this journey through Psygnosis' 1994 game by returning guests Tyler (corgibuttz) and Nick (f2bnp).

Wing Commander

Thirty years ago, on 26 September 1990, Origin Systems released Wing Commander for MS-DOS, the first game in what would be a very long-running and expansive series of prominent videogames. Last September we played it with the club to see what it's all about and whether it holds up today.

Two DGC veterans join hosts Florian ("rnlf") and Martijn ("Tijn") for this one. First of all Richard ("Pix"), who is a long-time Wing Commander superfan and has even seen the Wing Commander feature film. And last but not least Esko ("Firefyte") for whom this was actually the first time playing a main series Wing Commander game, although he has spent plenty of time playing some of the many spin-offs, such as Academy and Privateer.

Also we received no less than three voice messages for this episode, one of them even being a small quiz! Thanks to John ("Shattered"), David ("EvilCommieDictator") and Rob ("Spoonboy") for sending them in. If you'd also like to contribute a voice message, you can email them to us at: club@dosgameclub.com

The episode not only covers a discussion of the game itself, we also dive into the rich history of the wider franchise and talk about Chris Roberts' origins, his many endeavours with both games and films, and what he's up to now with Star Citizen.

Z

In August we played Z, one of the hardest-to-google games on the planet. Unless you know it's from the Bitmap Brothers, which you now do!

But is the game also noteworthy for it's quality gameplay and fancy FMV cutscenes telling an exciting story? Well, find out!

Joining hosts Martijn ("Tijn") and Florian ("rnlf") in this mission are David ("EvilCommieDictator") and Nick ("f2bnp").

Enjoy!

Jill of the Jungle

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 club@dosgameclub.com

Enjoy!

Frederik Pohl’s Gateway

Hello everyone!

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").

Enjoy!
