Les Manley in: Search For The King - the dollar store Leisure Suit Larry

December 1st, 2020

Episode 101: That hiatus was inadvertent, but it was nice to have a break! Ric's mic is currently out of commission so his sound quality takes a hit as he makes do with a cheap headset. Oh and by the way, we talk about Les Manley a bit. If this write-up makes Les Manley sound rather irrelevant, then you pretty much understand his role in gaming history.

Interview with Ken Williams and SURPRISE GUEST Roberta Williams (Sierra On-Line)

September 17th, 2020

Episode 92: The interview that Paul, Anna, and Ric never thought would happen!

What were their favourite projects? What Quest series almost happened but didn't? What did Roberta think of the King's Quest reboot? Which big time gaming companies were almost bought by Sierra? We have your answers in this extra long and extra special episode!
