Hang on to yer helmet while we drive over a couple pedestrians and cows and try to wreck the other drivers in Stainless Software's 1997 cult classic "Carmageddon".

Join us as we try to figure out what the whole hype was about, exactly how far over the top this game really is and whether this is a racing game, an action game, both or neither!

Joining hosts Martijn ("Tijn") and Florian ("rnlf") is returning DGC member Björn ("TigerQuoll"), who hadn't actually played the game before and new member Thanael ("Trumad") who has been a big fan ever since it came out.

Starting this episode we want to highlight retro content creators who are not white men in their late 30s (those are cool, too, but let's find out what other, less prominent voices are out there in our community!)

For our first time we'd like to give a big shout out to Tech Ambrosia, who creates fantastic videos, mostly about late Pentium era hardware. You can find her on YouTube and Twitter. Go subscribe to her and say hi from us!
