Episode 40 – Dark Forces

November 11, 2013

May the Force be with you, Blockers!

It’s time for episode 40, where I am covering the 1995 LucasArts FPS series, Dark Forces/Jedi Knight.

Dark Forces box artBefore that though, the news:

Damon Slye has launched and retracted a Red Baron Kickstarter.

Rock, Paper, Shotgun has done an interesting compare/contrast review of Dungeon Keeper vs. War for the Overworld.

Trilobyte Games has launched a kickstarter to develop the third game in the 7th Guest series.

From Blizcon 2013, Blizzard has a team working on bringing the original two Warcraft RTS games to modern PCs.

We then discuss the four games in Dark Forces / Jedi Knight series. All the usual suspects and a ton of your emails!

  1. I have really vague memories of my dad playing one of the games in the series, but for the life of me, I can’t remember which one it was… Maybe Dark Forces, and I think he also played Jedi Knight, but I myself had never played them and fuzzy memories at best…

    But!!… SEVENTH GUEST COMING UP? ZOMG!!!!!!!! SO EXCITED!!!!!!! :D
    Oh, no pressure, Joe, I’m sure you’ll nail this one too. :)
    Still lovin’ podcast, wish it was two weeks from now already.


    • Pressure’s on! I’ll try to pull some interesting dev stuff on the next show.
