July: The Aching
Hugo’s House of Horrors
Oh no! First Penelope is kidnapped by the evil Dr. Hammerstein, then your uncle Horace is murdered and finally, you crash your airplane in the South American jungle where Penelope gets bitten by a venomous spider!
Join us as we explore the world of the Hugo series, made for the most part by one man in the late 80s and early 90s, consisting of 3+1 games that are both heart-warmingly charming and mind-boggingly (and involuntarily) psychedelic.
We played the First Person Shooter sequel "Nightmare-3D" in episode 10, back in our club's first year!
Joining hosts Martijn ("Tijn") and Florian ("rnlf") are Michael, host of the DOS Games Jam (which we covered earlier in episode 41) and Dr. DOS, who is the current world record speed runner of the first game in the series.
Björn ("TigeQuoll") and Bernd have sent in voice messages, for which we're very grateful. If you'd also like to share a voice message, please send them firstname.lastname@example.org
We're doing shout outs now! This time we'd like to guide your attention to Lady Decade (Twitter and YouTube) who makes brilliant videos mostly about 3rd to 5th generation consoles and games for those. Go subscribe to her and say hi from us!
That's all for now. Enjoy!
