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:

Next time, for episode 100 I will be back for good with the long awaited Final Unity episode.
