Dang. One moment you are anticipating the dosgameclub game of the month, having scummvm set up and functioning properly on your fancy tiny portable device, the next you discover the month is already over and all you’ve seen of the game is its intro.

Tijn says:

Awww, that’s a shame. But it’s never too late! The forums remain open forever, so you can always post something about the games we did if you feel like it 🙂

Hey DGC! Nice work on another great episode. I’m really happy to have had the opportunity to play this game I would otherwise have never given a chance. I enjoyed it so much that I played through the 2nd game as well. The puzzle Richard mentioned where you have to wear a dog to sneak past a monster made no sense to me but luckily you have only a couple screens available at the time so I got it by trying everything with everything.

Really loving the year of the adventure game! Looking forward to Star Trek now!

Tijn says:

Thanks! I’m also looking forward to Star Trek tbh. I hear it’s pretty good.

I’m sure you know, but the “monkey wrench” puzzle from Monkey Island 2 makes no sense outside of the USA either, so I feel Simon 2’s “hush puppies” settle the score on that one haha
