August: Jazz Jackrabbit
We had a bit of a summer break, but we're back now! We hope to be back on track shortly.
Now back in June we wanted to play a vertical shooter, as this is a genre that we haven't covered so far. We ran a poll on Twitter between some classic games in the genre: Raptor, Tyrian, Xenon 2 and Raiden. Out of these, Tyrian won with a good margin, so that's what we played in June.
Joining our regular hosts Martijn ("Tijn") and Florian ("rnlf"), we had a very special guest: new DGC member and Tyrian speedrunner Esko ("FireFyte"). Esko is not just A Tyrian speedrunner, he is the one who came up with the idea of doing speedruns of this game in the first place! He's spent countless hours figuring out this game in great detail, so it's great he wanted to join our show and explain everything that's cool about Tyrian. He's one of the moderators of the Tyrian page over on speedrun.com.
