October's game: Alone in the Dark
As we're getting ready to switch the site over from playing Duke Nukem 3D (which was our March game) to Starflight (which we'll play in April), we've got something special for you: an extra DOS Game Club podcast, celebrating our 1 year anniversary!
PODCAST EPISODE #15: 1 YEAR OF DOS GAME CLUB
We invited all of the regulars that were on the show during the past year. All in all it was pretty crowded, with no less than 7 people total on the show! Besides hosts Martijn & Florian, the following people were present: Marwane, Mike, David, Philipp & Raphael.
Now during the show, we decided to rank all the games that we've played in the past year. This got pretty crazy, as we were all editing the same document at the same time and people started to replace the real names with joke names, as if ranking all these games wasn't confusing enough to begin with 😀 If you're interested in a screenshot of the final list, you can find it here.
At the end of the episode, we played a fun quiz Philipp which had prepared. He also runs the DOS Quiz Twitter account, so if you want more DOS trivia, you can follow him there.

GAME FOR APRIL: STARFLIGHT
In March, we've played Duke Nukem 3D. A podcast discussing that particular game will follow shortly, but if you have something to contribute, please don't hesitate and share your thoughts on our forums.
In April, we will be playing Starflight, as suggested by DGC member Corgibuttz. Although the game is quite old (1986!), it's supposedly a very interesting RPG-like game about exploring outer space. If you want to get in the mood, here's a cool video introducing the game by a few enthusiasts:
