Day of the Tentacle stream archive

Decided to relax a little bit and play one of my favorite games of all time. Apologies for my voice cutting out so often. Not really sure what the issue was.  

Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis demo

Here’s a pretty cool Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis (Lucasarts, 1992) interactive demo. A choice of the part is somewhat surprising, as this is something that happens rather late in the game (Spoilers!). I’ve decided to stick with MT-32 music for this one. A slightly larger than the floppy demo in file size, […]

Full Throttle demo

Here’s an interactive demo of Full Throttle (Lucasarts, 1995). This huge (over 170 megabytes) demo was obviously meant for coverdisks, and despite its size is rather short. It’s just a few interactive sequences sandwiched between two in-engine trailers for the game. Most interesting thing is the narration that was recorded specifically for this demo, and […]

Maniac Mansion non-interactive demos

A rolling demos of DOS versions of Maniac Mansion (Lucasfilm Games, 1988/1989). All new custom dialogue & situation. Pretty funny stuff. Dialogue is identical in both versions. Original: Enhanced: Download demos: https://archive.org/details/ManiacMansionDemo

LOOM™ EGA vs VGA

A long overdue video about differences between versions of LucasFilm Games’ classic LOOM. I explain why I’m not really fond of the VGA CD-ROM update of the game. I also briefly touch on the FM Towns version. Long story short: play the EGA one. (P.S. You can still ask me about LOOM) My original review […]

“Full Throttle” review

Bikes, gangs, betrayal, asphalt and trouble in this amazing 1995 Tim Schafer masterpiece. A game with tons of charisma. An adventure game that coined the verb coin.

“Loom” review

An adventure with a twist and probably the most underrated LucasArts game. Music, magic, a whole bunch of swans and absolutely no inventory in this 1990 EGA gem. Tchaikovsky is probably spinning in his grave, but who cares? This short and sweet interactive story will help you relax and kill an hour or so. Mobygames […]
