Space Quest

What have you gotten yourself into this time, Roger Wilco?

You wanted to have an easy, laid back job as a janitor on a space ship, but somehow it all went straight to crazy land the moment a bunch of space pirates came to take away a mysterious device you wouldn't understand anyway.

Will you be able to save the world many times over? Survive crash landing on a jungle planet and a big robot boxing match? Will you stop the invasion of the life insurance salesmen clone army? Do all those things - and many more - in Sierra's classic adventure series that ran in six episodes from 1986 to 1995 and represents a cross cut through almost the entirety of DOS gaming hardware.

Joining hosts Martijn ("Tijn") and Florian ("rnlf") are returning Club members Richard and Michael, as well as Jess, who has been running the very first Space Quest fansite on the web since the 90s.

Also a big thanks to DGC members "watchful" and "Shattered" for sending in a voice message! It's much appreciated. If you want to send in a voice message yourself, you can email them to club@dosgameclub.com

And last but not least: we're doing shout outs now! This time we'd like to guide your attention to the Talking Simulator Podcast, which is a great little videogame podcast by Jordan Erica Webber, featuring many interesting guests.

That's all for now. Enjoy!

Transport Tycoon

Did you really, really want a model train set as a kid, with a landscape modeled after your preferences, stations where you want them and amazing trains that you control? Was it absolutely out of reach for you as well?

Well, thanks to Chris Sawyer's Transport Tycoon, we got what we wanted in the end, even if it was just virtual in our computers - maybe even better in many aspects. We also look at how projects like TTDPatch and OpenTTD kept the game alive through the decades and how the game is still being actively improved to this day.

Joining hosts Martijn ("Tijn") and Florian ("rnlf") are returning Club member David and new member Niels, who is actually an active developer of OpenTTD and thus very knowledgeable about the game and especially OpenTTD's history. Sadly, David had to leave a couple minutes early, so the last 20 minutes ro so it's just the three of us.

We're doing shout outs now! This time we'd like to guide your attention to Ms Mad Lemon (Website) who makes (among others) hardware tinkering videos about 8 and 16 bit computers. Even this "Amiga" we hear so much about. Go subscribe to her and say hi from us!

That's all for now. Enjoy!

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 club@dosgameclub.com

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!
