I’ve been doing a series of Let’s Play videos exploring old adventures, text games and lost design forms from the 1980s Apple IIe and Commodore 64 era. In a time when young men shout over new action games, I will talk softly over strange old ones.

  • Lo-Fi Let’s Play: The Institute

    … facility before taking a hard right into a hallucinogenic nightmare. Like Pearson’s previous work, it’s uncommonly dark for a crude 1983 computer game. It’s also overtly offensive in its imagery and illustrations of mental health problems, as so many ‘scary’ video games unfortunately are. The Institute is clumsy and not especially graphic — its fumbling…

    …-time favorites. Although a couple of the stereotypes in the game’s ‘wacky’ cast definitely strike an off note, in general the game has the combination of whimsy and sincerity that feels like Roberta Williams’ hallmark. You’ll see in the video a bit of the game’s passing time mechanic — the game’s characters go about their movements and conversations…

  • Lo-Fi Let’s Play: Tass Times in Tonetown

    … see what I mean if you watch the video. The game came with a newspaper that served as the player’s guide to the weird world of Tonetown — frankly amazing stuff when it comes to world-building, establishing the language and tass-centric values of the game’s fantasy world. Some of the newspaper’s info, from fashion trends to the editor’s own name…

  • Lo-Fi Let’s Play: Critical Mass

    … that's one part meditations on my childhood, one part adventure game criticism, and one part preservation effort. Bonus: Everyone says the quiet talk, lo-fi handmade feel and keyboard tapping triggers ASMR responses. Please enjoy!] Like Sirius Software’s Gruds in Space, the same company’s Critical Mass was one of my main childhood demons…
