Episode 99 – Cyber Empires (feat. Troels Pleimert)

February 12, 2017

Hey Blockers!

One more guest show before I’m back in episode 100. This time around my good buddy Troels, the Space Quest Historian is here with a hidden gem, the 1992 Silicon Knights action/strategy game Cyber Empires (or Steel Empire in Europe).

Not only does Troels do a great job with the show, he also interviews the game’s creator, Denis Dyack! This episode contains an abridged version of the interview, for the whole thing, check out Troels’ mixcloud:
