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.
