KKND: Krush Kill ‘n Destroy

FMV cutscenes with very quirky humour? Check! Ridiculously over the top scenario? Check! Giant acid-squirting scorpions vs. six-wheeled flame thrower ATVs? Check!

In 1997, Beam Software released the first game in the KKnD series. Is it just an unimaginative Command & Conquer reskin clone? Or did it bring something unique to the then still young real-time strategy genre?

Joining hosts Martijn ("Tijn") and Florian ("rnlf") is club member Björn ("TigerQuoll").

This month our shoutout is slightly different, pointing you to a brilliant interview series that Caroline Delbert did with game developers who entered their games into the 2022 Queer Games Bundle over on itch.io. Nothing retro gaming related this time, but definitely worth checking out.

That's all for now. Enjoy!

Nice episode! Short and sweet. And Bjorn’s one of my favorite repeat guests. Even though I didn’t get a chance to try this, I watched some missions on Youtube and the episode was still entertaining.

Sorry about the lack of voice messages. Have you recorded LBA yet? I was planning on recording something but a family situation came up this month so I neglected to. But if you’re still running behind on recordings, I’d be happy to send one your way!
