023 – Xmas Special: Hard Puzzles – Space Quest Historian Podcast

This episode starts out with an immediate interruption by Chris Pope the SpacePope to bring you good tidings of great joy with how things are going on the SpaceVenture project. And it’s that time of the year —  you all know what I’m talking about — the Space Quest Historian delves head-first into the pool of hard-ass, difficult-as-all-hell puzzles in a rant that, predictably, goes nowhere. Luckily, he’s not on his own, as Alan Luckachina steps up to deliver his own take on the subject in another phenominal bit of The Lucky Corner. Also on this show, you will find not one, but two impressive treats: Our music pal, Ken Allen, talks about music devices of old that never went anywhere, and the Historian plays his entire interview of Space Quest III composer Bob Siebenberg in its full, unedited glory! Merry whatever, ladies and janitors!

022 – Toleman Awakens – Space Quest Historian Podcast

The Space Quest Historian’s laptop has gone down in mysterious circumstances. Luckily, Pete Toleman was in the right place at the right time to take the mic and start spewing forth about Troels’ predicament. In amongst well-wishes from Frederik Olsen, Professor Jess and Chris Pope, guest producer Darren managed to keep Pete in check long enough to discuss arcade sequences in Space Quest games. Alan Luckachina gives us his views on the matter in The Lucky Corner. Plus, Brandon Blume has a musical gift waiting for the Space Quest Historian, and Pete hacks Troels’ phone to listen in on what Serena Nelson has to say about Priapic Mountain.

021 – Death In Space – Space Quest Historian Podcast

It’s that time of year again: the time for fastidious contemplation of our mortality and– nah, just kidding. It’s Halloween. So the topic for this podcast is DEATH. And who better to help us out than Liz “Jeysie” Calkins, proprietor of the Many Deaths Of Roger Wilco website!

Also on the program is an interview with James Broom (animator on Space Quest II VGA and writer for KickstartAdventure.com), a lengthy rant on previous topics by Alan Luckachina in his very own segment, a SpaceVenture update by the Space Pope himself, a trip into the bowels of ScumSoft with Mark Seibert and James Mulvale, and, of course, the latest chapter in Josh Henry’s ongoing fan fiction tale, The Quest For The Two Guys From Andromeda. Oh, and Pete Toleman’s gone off the deep end.

020 – Bea Vs. Stellar- Space Quest Historian Podcast

Step into your careful boots and take a trepidatious trip into one of the most controversial topics of Space Quest fandom: Beatrice vs. Stellar? Which of Roger’s love interests do you prefer? We get to hear the true origins of Stellar’s character from Space Quest 6 designer Josh Mandel, as well as listener emails and the Historian’s own opinions on the matter.

There’s also more from the dysfunctional family of Priapic Mountain Games and their ongoing quest to create a haunted house simulator that somehow won’t suck, despite ardent attempts by its co-owner Pete Toleman. And, speaking of quests, settle in for chapter 8 of Josh Henry’s ongoing fan fiction tale, The Quest For The Two Guys From Andromeda. And we round off our musical endeavors by listening to an original piece for Arnoid The Annihilator by James Mulvale, as well as the final part of Ken Allen’s interview with Frank Klepacki.

019 – Interfaces – Space Quest Historian Podcast

The Historian takes on that age-old controversy that has plagued adventure games since time immemorial (or, at least, back to the late 80’s and beyond): Which is better? Parser or point-and-click interfaces? Join us as we delve into the pros and cons of written input versus mouse-driven pointing-and-clicking on things with input from Jason Fyre and Frederik Olsen. We’ve also got chapter 7 of Josh Henry’s ongoing fan fiction tale “The Quest for the Two Guys From Andromeda” – and Pete Toleman and Serena Nelson continue their struggle to make their haunted house game a success, with Pete setting his sights on another scourge of the online community: Let’s Players of YouTube. It’s an exciting, fun-filled hour of complete nonsense that you probably won’t wish you hadn’t wasted your life on, because, hell, it’s something to do, isn’t it?

018 – Retro fan games – Space Quest Historian Podcast

The universe might implode at the sheer awesomeness of having three illustrious fan game developers, Guy From Andromeda Mark Crowe, SpaceVenture composer Ken Allen and Westwood composer Frank Klepacki all in the same podcast episode. But that's exactly what's happening here. 

Get ready for two hours of pure unadulterated nerdy space fun as we take a closer look at three retro style fan games -- The Lost Chapter, Replicated and Decision of the Elders -- complete with commentary by all three developers, along with some added incentives to play Replicated by our resident Professor Jess.

Serena Nelson gives her lowdown on her favorite supporting character, and Mark Crowe talks about the inspiration behind Roger's crew in Space Quest V. There's also more fun to be had at Priapic Mountain Games' CEO, Pete Toleman, and Josh Henry continues his epic fan fiction tale "Quest for the Two Guys From Andromeda."

And, as a special treat, our music pal Ken Allen sits down for a chat with the composer for Westwood's Legend of Kyrandia and Command & Conquer series, Frank Klepacki.
