Tyrian

I’m still playing through Wolfenstein 3D at the moment, and we’re about halfway through the series now! I’ll be moving on to the Nocturnal Mission episodes now that we’ve completed the first three episodes of the game.

After completing God of Thunder (check the review here) I’ve started a new series on classic DOS shoot-’em’up Tyrian! Tyrian was one of my favourite games when I was younger and it’s a blast playing through it again, so hopefully it’s fun to watch as well! Warning though, there’s a fair bit of storyline in the game, resulting in some questionable voice acting from myself. Yes, worse than usual… enjoy!

Games of the Week

This week I’ve begun playing through a couple of new games – God of Thunder from 1993 and Wolfenstein 3D from 1992. Both are DOS games, Wolfenstein 3D being one of the earliest First-Person Shooter games and considered a classic of the genre, and God of Thunder being a quirky puzzle adventure that’s a bit less well known. Both games had their first episodes regularly featured on shareware disks in the early ’90s which was at the time one of the most common release formats and meant they could easily be shared to a large audience through, for example, sample disks, or magazine coverdisks.

Anyways, these are both ongoing on my Youtube channel at the moment, so check them out!
