016 – Roger As A Hero – Space Quest Historian Podcast

Join the Historian as he asks that fundamental question that has plagued all humankind since time began: What is a hero, and can Roger Wilco be considered one? What IS a hero? And will Ace Hardway, the protagonist of the Two Guys’ upcoming SpaceVenture, be considered one? To assist him in answering this question, the Historian enlists the help of fellow literary theory nerd, Daniel Stacey, who goes down the Space Quest series one by one to analyze Roger’s motivations.

Then we have a special treat, as we not only get to hear Mark Seibert and James Mulvale talk about the sound effects and music of the planet Phleebhut, but also some special trivia on composing music for early sound cards from Ken Allen.

Oh, and there’s more from Priapic Mountain as Serena thwarts Pete’s plans to mess up their haunted house simulator, only to find he’s planning on releasing the game tomorrow! Well, that makes it today, doesn’t it, seeing as this episode is one day late?

And, finally, we cap things off with chapter 4 of Josh Henry’s epic tale, read by the man himself, in which he, among other things, impersonates the Historian himself.

015 – Good vs. Evil – The Arch Nemesis – Space Quest Historian Podcast

The Historian dives into the topic of nefarious villains and automated floor scrubbers in this episode. But not before tackling some listener emails and comments about last episode’s topic on episodic gaming. There’s also news from Priapic Mountain as both Serena and Pete Toleman battle for control over their new “haunted house simulator” game idea. We continue our journey down the Space Quest III soundtrack with Mark Seibert and James Mulvale; this time with the jittery Lite Speed theme – along with some more nerdy, technical-sounding information about the sound card technology of yesteryear. And, finally, we unwind with the continuation of Josh Henry’s epic fan fiction tale of Sierra fans on a trek to rescue the Two Guys From Andromeda from forces unknown.

014 – Episodic vs Full-Length – Space Quest Historian Podcast

The Historian takes on the controversial issue of episodic vs. full-length games and discusses the merits and drawbacks of both approaches to releasing games. Also, we hear more from the saga of Priapic Mountain from both co-CEO Serena Nelson and bitter, original CEO (now co-CEO) Pete Toleman. We continue our journey down the Space Quest III soundtrack as reimagined by fan composer James Mulvale with ‘The Navigation Theme,’ along with a brief introduction by SQ3′s music editor Mark Seibert. And we’re also talking a bit about how the game sounded on various other systems back in the day. Finally — last but not least — there’s another scintillating update from the Andromedan bunker about how the SpaceVenture is coming along by our very own Space Pope.

Check out Infamous Quest’s new game Quest For Infamy over at http://infamous-quests.com — designed by our very own SteveBot and featuring music and narration by James Mulvale.
