034 – Orbiting the Adventure Sun – Space Quest Historian Podcast – S3E11

The Historian revels in the peace and quiet that comes from having shipped CyberCedric off to his perceived black metal paradise of Nuvsvåg, Norway. An extended interview segment with games journalist and walking encyclopedia Richard Cobbett just makes it all the sweeter

033 – Eye Spy the End of an Era – Space Quest Historian Podcast – S3E10

CyberCedric delivers the best news ever (he’s moving to Norway), and “your music pal” Ken Allen has some great news for game music lovers: He’s giving away his remastered soundtrack to the games he worked on at Tsunami FOR FREE to listeners of this podcast. Not only that, but Dave Gilbert of Wadjet Eye Games graces us with his presence and discusses his game design philosophy over the loud din of ambulance sirens.

032 – Genesis of an Exodus – Space Quest Historian Podcast – S3E9

Cedric has a new calling in life and he’s not letting us hear the end of it. Thankfully, we have Serena Nelson and Jess Morrissette to keep us distracted, as well as Pete dealing with a VERY frustrated narrator. Not to mention a scintillating interview with horror master Agustín Cordes of Senscape, creator of Scratches, Serena and the upcoming Asylum!

031 – The Song of My People – Space Quest Historian Podcast – S3E8

As CyberCedric is off to broaden his musical horizons (which can only end badly), the Historian interviews avid adventure game player and fellow podcaster Robert Menes of the Nostalgia Roadtrip podcast (soundcloud.com/nostalgiaroadtrip) about his favorite adventure games. Also on the show, more crowdfunding tips from Serena Nelson, and more music talk with Brandon Blume, Ken Allen and James Mulvale. RIP Infamous Quests!

030 – What Comes Around Goes Around Comes Around – Space Quest Historian Podcast – S3E7

The war is over and it’s back to making the people laugh and talk about adventure games again! Actually, there is a small amount of housekeeping to do, which you’ll hear at the end of the episode, once again featuring the brilliant guest voice of Josh Mandel as King Graham, and Ken Allen reprising HIS voice role from KQ5 as Madam Mushka’s gypsy guard (“no more for today!”). On the program itself, though, we have more crowdfunding tips from Serena Nelson, a look back at the disheartening time of Space Quest 7 with Jess Morrissette, and my very special interviewee guest William Barr of BillyGoat Entertainment, creators of Her Majesty’s SPIFFING.

029 – Tale of the Foe – Space Quest Historian Podcast – S3E6

With a full-scale war with CyberCedric going on, the Historian has retreated to moderate safety in his laundry room to conduct what might be the last episode of anything ever. That is, until a hero appears! There is, however, still time to interview Tracey McCabe, Dave McCabe and Paul Conway of Spooky Doorway, creators of Darkside Detective. Also, more crowdfunding tips from Serena Nelson, more music talk with Brandon Blume, James Mulvale and Ken Allen. Featuring the special guest voice of Josh Mandel as King Graham

028 – The Horror Unfolds – Space Quest Historian Podcast – S3E5

It’s deceptively calm around the Historian this time. We’ve got your usual input from Serena Nelson, crowdfunding expert of the adventure game heroes (or is that crowdfunding hero of the adventure game experts?), and another trip down memory lane with Jess ‘DecafJedi’ Morrissette about the early days of the Virtual Broomcloset and Space Quest fandom in the 90’s. And, last but certainly not least, we’ve got an interview with the creators of last year’s highly regarded — and the Historian’s own personal ‘Game of the Year’ of 2015 — indie horror adventure, Fran Bow, mr. and mrs. Natalia Figueroa and Isak Martinsson of Killmonday Games! And then … uh, well. You’ll see.”

027 – The Linear Open World – Space Quest Historian Podcast – S3E4

Rumors of the Historian’s death were greatly exaggerated! After a brief unintentional hiatus, the show returns with more great crowdfunding tips from Serena Nelson, more music talk with Ken Allen, Brandon Blume and James Mulvale, and more nonsense from Pete Toleman, who talks about his experiences making talkie CD-ROM’s this time. With a special guest interview with Jay Tholen, creator of Dropsy The Clown, and some quite harrowing news from CyberCedric

026 – Fall of the Language Barrier – Space Quest Historian Podcast – S3E3

Things come to a head between the Historian and the scourge of his laptop, CyberCedric. But despite Cedric gaining new powers, there’s still time to walk down memory lane with Jess Morrissette, get more crowdfunding tips from Serena Nelson, and listen to how Pete Toleman made it big in Communist Germany. Tonight’s special guest is Fabrice Breton of CowCat Games, creator of Demetrios: The BIG Cynical Adventure, who talks about being funny in a second language, and making first-person adventure games that are nothing like Myst.

025 – Fourth Wall Demolition- Space Quest Historian Podcast – S3E2

Join the Historian on a tale of horror and monsters as he interviews Li Boar of Stuck In Attic Games, creators of the hand-animated horror/comedy game Gibbous: A Cthulhu Adventure … and also listens to more of Pete’s toe-cringing memoirs. But it’s not all ghouls and nightmares. There’s also music talk with three heavy-weights of the game music world: James Mulvale (IQ Adventures), Brandon Blume (Himalaya Studios), and Ken Allen (Sierra On-Line et.al.), and also more good tips on how to become a crowdfunding expert with Serena Nelson
