Jones in the Fast Lane – International edition

Update: In case it wasn't clear already, this was an april fool's joke. We made an English language podcast about Jones too and will keep the show in English of course.

--- Original post: ---

It's 1 APRIL again and that means we look at the game we played in February, which in this case is Jones in the Fast Lane.

Now as is so often the case, we're once again joined by an international cast of guest for this episode. And this got us thinking: rarely is English the native language of the people on our show, yet we do it in English anyway. What a hassle! That's why we've decided to change things up by letting everyone speak in their own language instead. This allows for much easier and more interesting discussion, which surely will improve the quality of the show!

Raptor – Call of the Shadows

The Mega-Corps pay well, for those good enough to survive. They call you into the shadows with dreams of wealth, and you answer, the only way you know how.

Apogee's 1994 vertical shooter Raptor - Call of the Shadows was a game that impressed many young players back in the day with its slick graphics, fluid gameplay and massive explosions. But does it hold up today? How does it compare to other games from that genre and era, nearly 30 years later?

Joining hosts Martijn ("Tijn") and Florian ("rnlf") are returning Club members Esko ("Firefyte") and Jozef ("yozy"), as well as Hannes ("Mr Creosote"), who's on for the first time.

Also a big thanks to DGC member "Pixel Prophecy" 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

The month's shoutout goes to one of our own, DGC member "watchful", who is creating a podcast with descriptive, audio-only Let's Plays. In our opinion a great way to make our community more inclusive to a wider range of people. You can find the podcast on https://letsplaybyplay.org/.

That's all for now. Enjoy!

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

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!
