Play Together: Simon the Sorcerer Part 1

For this month's game, Simon the Sorcerer, we are doing something new: since the game has a reputation of being overly hard, we decided that instead of grabbing a walkthrough, we're going to attempt to use our combined wisdom to beat the game.

So every couple days we're going to meet up and discuss the progress we made individually, get everyone up to speed and onto the same page, then play together for a while until we're in a situation where everyone can progress on their own again.

We're discussing this further on the forums: https://www.dosgameclub.com/forums/topic/play-together/

Let's see how this will work out!

New Server!

So, we finally moved the site over to a new server. It seems like everything went smoothly, but please let us know if you experience any problems (mail to club@dosgameclub.com).

The old server was a decade old virtual server with no sensible path to update the operating system, so we ran outdated versions of basically everything. What a mess, haha. It was also so resource limited that we had to rate limit all downloads. All this is over now!

Enjoy the new server.

Day of the Tentacle

Well, you know what they say: "If you want to save the world, you gotta push a few old ladies down the stairs" - and that's exactly what we did!

Join us as we save the world from the evil Purple Tentacle in LucasArts' 1993 absolute masterpiece Day of the Tentacle. This is not a hidden gem at all: this game is considered by many to be one of the best point and click adventure games of all time.

Step one. Find plans. Step two. Save world. Step three. Listen to this podcast episode!

Joining hosts Martijn ("Tijn") and Florian ("rnlf") for this episode are Oddvar ("dollarone"), Nick ("f2bnp") and Martin ("Srandista"). HP ("HPLoveGames), Mark ("rambutaan") and John ("Shattered") gave us their opinion on the game in some very cool voice messages.
