I make videos, games, podcasts, and blogs — primarily, but not exclusively, about adventure games. Because I very much like adventure games.

Panel 1

What the hell is this?

Hi. I’m the Space Quest Historian. I do a lot of things. Hopefully, this website can function as a not-too-confusing hub for all this activity.

Let’s Plays

Yup, I play games on YouTube. I do three videos a week. They come out every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday at 4pm CET.

Currently playing:
Tuesday:

The ULTIMATE Space Quest series playthrough

All 6 games + 2 remakes
Feat. introductions by Danny Sexbang of Game Grumps/NSP

Wednesday:

(w/commentary by Joe Mastroianni & SQH)

Thursday:

To The Moon

Live streams

I also do a live stream where I play a game once a week on Twitch. It’s a very interactive affair, and I enjoy interacting with the chat while I play. I stream every Sunday at 2pm CET.

Live streams are also archived in their entirety on my YouTube channel.

Currently streaming: Life Is Strange (watch past streams)

Blogs

I write blog posts about (mostly) the adventure game scene, being an amateur game developer, being an amateur YouTuber, and just general stuff about games.

Check out the latest posts below this box, or check out the categories in the menu at the top.

Podcast

I write, produce, and host the Space Quest Historian podcast. The first two seasons were (primarily) about Space Quest, featuring contributions by Scott Murphy, Mark Crowe, Josh Mandel, Chris Pope, Mark Seibert, Ken Allen, Bob Siebenberg, and a host of Space Quest fans.

The 3rd season featured interviews with the creators of games like Fran Bow, Blackwell Epiphany, Dropsy the Clown, and Darkside Detective.

Check out season 1, season 2, or season 3 here — or subscribe (iOS, Android, et.al.) at Feedburner.

There are also extended interviews from season 3 available on Mixcloud.

Feats of strength (and failure)

Bit of old news at this point, I’m afraid, but it deserves archiving. Another one of Joe’s Hangouts took place earlier this month, covering a topic that I suggested. I really shouldn’t have, because I didn’t have any good stories to share on the subject, but it worked out well, anyway. As usual, the whole […]

Quelle surprise: Adventure games are STILL not dead

Matt Wales has written for Kotaku a piece entitled “Point and Click is Dead Again,” and that sound you just heard was the collective adventure gaming community all around the world sighing in exasperation. The article itself is either petulant whining or, worse, clickbait — perhaps both. In it, Mr. Wales argues that the adventure […]
