A pixel art maestro extraordinaire Ben Chandler returns to discuss one of the most important, successful and amazing PC games of all time – the mighty DOOM (and also other games made with its revolutionary engine.)
On the brand new episode of The Space Quest Historian show Troels, myself and Christian Giegerich discuss Space Quest releases in foreign territories. Well, just Russia and Germany, actually.
A rather interesting installation program for Broken Sword: The Shadow of the Templairs (Revolution Software/Virgin Interactive, 1996) featuring voice, music, cool effects and a Breakout clone while you wait.

This is the original 1999 release of Quake Redone Quick, a complete Quake 1 speedrun on Nightmare difficulty in 14:32 by just one person – Ingmar “Nagasaki” Poerner.
Although this speedrun was later improved on and released in a variety of versions, this original release is still my personal favorite.
The video includes the whole run, additional demos and everything from the secret menu, which can be accessed by typing NAGASAKI during the main menu.
Since this version seems to be lost in time, I’ve also decided to provide a download: http://www.dosnostalgia.com/files/qrdq_1999.exe
The website for the updated version has been archived here: http://www.quakewiki.net/archives/illmind.planetquake.gamespy.com/old/qrdq.html
Although download links appear to be dead, a full video version can be found on YouTube: http://youtu.be/x8vI9YmiUG4
Sorry for the sound pops – new microphone.

A complete playthrough of a 1997 Russian Windows game GAG: The Impotent Mystery (ГЭГ: Отвязное Приключение) with a commentary by yours truly & a special guest Igor Artyomov.
This quirky Russian FMV adventure game from Auric Vision & ZES’t Studio has tons of immature jokes, really high production value, poisonous penguins and an English version, which is the one we’re playing.
Coming soon to a PC near you, a complete playthrough of a 1997 Russian Windows game GAG: The Impotent Mystery (ГЭГ: Отвязное Приключение) with commentary by yours truly & a special guest Igor Artyomov.
“Happy Birthday!” is a cool little edutainment game developed & published by Nikita Ltd. in 1995. It’s actually a rather well known title. It was marketed as a game which supposed to teach your child English, but I personally think it falls short in that aspect. But it’s still a fun little game with colorful graphics, cheerful music and a few (annoying) mini-games.
What I totally forgot to mention is that the game actually has a sequel called (guess?) “Happy Birthday 2” which I’ve seen a lot of magazine ads for in the 90s, but have never actually encountered. This time around it was a Windows CD-ROM release with SVGA graphics and a vocabulary of 800 words. However, it looks like it was largely a remake of the first game: http://www.1c.ru/vendors/nikita/BIRTHDAY.2/BIRTHD2.HTM
The introduction sequence and a tiny bit of gameplay from a Russian MS-DOS game “Black Zone” (DOKA Media, 1995, CD-ROM release). Made by Aleksey Silaev, it appears to a be a spiritual successor to his little known gem “Mick”. This game is very rare and almost completely unknown even in Russia.
