The Space Quest Historian

Stuff happening in the world of a person way too obsessed with Space Quest and adventure games

Kentucky Route Zero – Part 6

Well, shit’s getting weird. Okay, let me rephrase that. Shit’s been weird for a long time. But now we’re starting to meet people who are really, really weird.

We arrive at what can only be described as the bizarro collective from hell, and to top it all off it’s fucking raining cats and dogs. Guess who has to go outside in the rain on a busted foot? No points if your answer was THIS GUY.

Demetrios – Playable Demo

Demetrios is a first-person point-and-click game being developed by French one-man developer Cowcat Games. I know what you’re thinking: First-person? Let me put that fear to rest right now: This is not a Myst-type game. It’s straight-up old-school adventuring like God intended.

The game is currently being Kickstarted (go on, give the man some money), and you can of course download and play the free demo like I am here:

Broken Age – Part 8

I really wasn’t looking forward to getting back to Vella. And my disheartenment reached a new low when I thought that, upon escaping Cloud Hell, I was only given a single other location to visit.

Of course, that’ll teach me to run my mouse cursor over every bit of the screen.

Broken Age – Part 7

In this scintillating episode, we complete Shay’s ridiculously carnivally escapades with Mr. Wolfy (who still looks like a fox if you ask me), and then get bombed back to Featherville — which exasperates me to the point where the episode reaches a natural conclusion.

Kentucky Route Zero – Part 5

This game is just a total head-scratcher. But a good one!

Navigating the weirdness that is the sine wave labyrinth we found ourselves in at the end of last episode is one thing — but what meets us at the other end is just as weird. And we’re still hobbling around on a fucked up leg! Where’s the damn doctor, anyway?!

SomeGuy & Space Quest Historian play Simon the Sorceror – All Other Parts

Well, the weekend passed and I was off doing other things than checking my social media. And then yesterday passed as well. All this time, SomeGuy kept dutifully putting up new episode of our playthrough of Simon the Sorceror, and I did not keep up with posting them as they appeared.

So, here’s my “fuck it, here’s the rest of it” post. Enjoy!

Broken Age – Part 6

Let’s disrupt some shit! Get in there and fuck up the establishment. Work our magic!

What better way to do that than to crochét a tapestry and have our heads shrunken? Well, you tell me, ‘cos that’s what we’re doing.

SomeGuy & Space Quest Historian play Simon the Sorceror – Part 3

Oh, god. Swampy. Fucking Swampy. Not only is he a pain in the ass, his voice is like a thousand nails on a thousand chalkboards.

Someone fucking kill Swampy, or at least have the decency to put us all out of our misery!

Wait … He’s in every goddamn Simon game?! How cruel are AdventureSoft?!

SomeGuy & Space Quest Historian play Simon the Sorceror – Part 2

In part 2 of our Let’s Play (should be titled Let’s Snark, really, since I didn’t actually play and we were both kinda snarky), SomeGuy and I remark on the wonderful graphics, the lame fourth-wall breaking, the endless dialogue … and get used to that, ‘cos we will be going on and on about those topics throughout the whole series. A lot.

We also meet the worst hint system in the world.
