The Space Quest Historian

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

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.

Kentucky Route Zero – Part 4

We arrive at the start of episode 2 of Kentucky Route Zero and discover a Kafkaesque nightmare of bureaucracy, snooty receptionists, unhelpful people, and of course televisions.

Oh, and bears. Wait, what? Bears?


(P.S. Pardon the lack of game audio in this episode. I had my OBS settings on backwards.)

SomeGuy & Space Quest Historian play Simon the Sorceror – Part 1

I had a blast of a time watching my fellow adventure YouTube/podcast colleague SomeGuy play through AdventureSoft’s 1993 classic Simon the Sorceror. He even let me offer some snarky commentary alongside his own, and we spent a good 3 hours going through the entire game.

SomeGuy is going to be posting these in episodes on his YouTube channel, so head over and subscribe. (I’ll also be a total whore and post them here as well.)

The first episode, which picks up 20 minutes after SomeGuy realized he’d forgotten to hit “record” the first time we tried, is right here:
