There isn't much we need to say to introduce you to Quake. It's Quake, after all. Quake may be one of the most important games crossing the bridge between the "old" and "new" gaming worlds. It still came out as a DOS game, originally, as shareware, rendered fully in software. But it was also there to give us online multiplayer, modding, machinima, …

Joining hosts Martijn ("Tijn") and…
 
Update: In case it wasn't clear already, this was an april fool's joke. We made an English language podcast about Jones too and will keep the show in English of course. --- Original post: --- It's 1 APRIL again and that means we look at the game we played in February, which in this case is Jones in the Fast Lane. Now as is so often the case, we're …
 
The Mega-Corps pay well, for those good enough to survive. They call you into the shadows with dreams of wealth, and you answer, the only way you know how. Apogee's 1994 vertical shooter Raptor - Call of the Shadows was a game that impressed many young players back in the day with its slick graphics, fluid gameplay and massive explosions. But does …
 
What have you gotten yourself into this time, Roger Wilco?

Will you be able to save the world many times over? Survive crash …
 
Did you really, really want a model train set as a kid, with a landscape modeled after your preferences, stations where you want them and amazing trains that you control? Was it absolutely out of reach for you as well? Well, thanks to Chris Sawyer's Transport Tycoon, we got what we wanted in the end, even if it was just virtual in our computers - m…
 
Oh no!

Join us as we explore the world of the Hugo series, made for the most part by one man in the late 80s and early 90s, consisting of 3+1 g…
 
Hang on to yer helmet while we drive over a couple pedestrians and cows and try to wreck the other drivers in Stainless Software's 1997 cult classic "Carmageddon".

It's time for round four of our "year of the adventure game"! So far we've covered Day of the Tentacle, Lost Eden and Simon the Sorcerer, but now it's time to go beyond the stars with Interplay's 1992 Star Trek: 25th Anniversary, celebrating the 25th anniversary of the original series. Originally released on floppy disk and later expanded with a CD…
 
Back when Blizzard Entertainment was still known as Silicon & Synapse, they made a funny looking puzzle-platformer called The Lost Vikings. It's hard as nails, utterly unfair, but also weirdly kind of compelling. What more can we say about it? Listen to find out! Joining hosts Martijn ("Tijn") and Florian ("rnlf") for this episode are Oddvar ("doll…
 
Calypso needs your help! The evil sorcerer Sordid has turned him (and a couple other people) into stone.

Joining hosts Martijn ("Tijn") and Florian ("rnlf") for this episode is Richard ("Pix"). http://www.dosgameclub.com/podcast/2021/…
 
In May we played Syndicate, the 1993 tactical shooter game by Bullfrog. Set in a futuristic dystopian cyberpunk world where governments have been replaced by corporations, it's quite a bit grittier than many of Bullfrog's other titles. But is it fun? Listen to find out! Joining host Martijn ("Tijn") for this episode are Rob ("Spoonboy") and retro g…

Well, you know what they say: "If you want to save the world, you gotta push a few old ladies down the stairs" - and that's exactly what we did! Join us as we save the world from the evil Purple Tentacle in LucasArts' 1993 absolute masterpiece Day of the Tentacle. This is not a hidden gem at all: this game is considered by many to be one of the bes…
 
Well, turns out we weren't quite ready yet to deprecate you of our lovely voices. I guess we'll keep making podcasts the classic ("lame") way. Thanks for all the nice comments about this episode, it was a lot of fun to make (this post has been automatically generated on April 1, 2021) Hello. This is a new thing the creators of "DOS Game Club" are t…
 
To kick off the DOS Game Club "Year of the Adventure Game" with a bang, we have a special episode for you all: an interview with David Fox! We recently got the chance to talk to him about the early days of developing adventure games at Lucas, where he was one of the first people to be hired after they founded their games division in 1982. David Fox…
 
Who likes turn based strategy games? WE DO! But we think we're not alone in that. Simtex' 1994 4X classic Master of Magic is seen by many as one of the hidden gems of the genre often compared to "Civilization with Magic", but does that hold up? Or is it actually more than that? We're discussing this and many more questions with a few veterans and a…
 
How many Skiing games are there for DOS? We don't know for sure, but we believe the number is 13. And we tried them all! There are some that probably everybody knows about, like The Games: Winter Challenge, even though people probably thought that game was actually called "Winter Games". Far from it though, that's an entirely different one! Crazy h…
 
In November we played STREET ROD, a quirky little racing game that's all about 1960s hot rods, released in 1989 by California Dreams. Sounds pretty American, right? Turns out, this game was actually developed in Soviet-controlled Poland, behind the iron curtain! Learn all about what makes this game interesting in this episode of the DOS Game Club p…
 
Northern Europe, 928 AD. A thirsty traveler, a wolf howling in the distance, and a seemingly deserted village. Or is it? Ečstatica is a 3D survival horror game with a very unique look: Instead of polygons, everything is made out of ellipsoids. Join us in our adventure to restore the village and defeat evil demons. Martijn (Tijn) and Florian (rnlf) …
 
Thirty years ago, on 26 September 1990, Origin Systems released Wing Commander for MS-DOS, the first game in what would be a very long-running and expansive series of prominent videogames. Last September we played it with the club to see what it's all about and whether it holds up today. Two DGC veterans join hosts Florian ("rnlf") and Martijn ("Ti…
 
In August we played Z, one of the hardest-to-google games on the planet. Unless you know it's from the Bitmap Brothers, which you now do! But is the game also noteworthy for it's quality gameplay and fancy FMV cutscenes telling an exciting story? Well, find out! Joining hosts Martijn ("Tijn") and Florian ("rnlf") in this mission are David ("EvilCom…
 
We spent our July playing Jill of the Jungle, one of the big milestones in PC gaming history for making Epic Megagames actually "mega" and allowing them to build all those future games we all so dearly love. But is Jill itself a noteworthy game? Or do we need the rose-tinted glasses of nostalgia to enjoy it? Opinions seem to differ and this episode…
 
Hello everyone! Last June we spent playing our first text adventure with the club. Incredible that we never did one before, so good thing we got that sorted. It's a genre that can be difficult to get into, so we decided to pick a very accessible game: Frederik Pohl's Gateway, by Legend Entertainment, released in June 1992. Another first is that eve…
