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

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!

Addendum: we talk a bit about "AGI", but never explain what it is. AGI is shorthand for "Adventure Game Interpreter" and was the original engine developed by Sierra for King's Quest and their later adventure games. It was later followed by an engine called SCI, the Sierra Creative Interpreter. More info on Wikipedia: AGI.
