Campfire #1: Indie Adventure Games

08 Mar, 2013, 20:06 | Posted by: Gabez

We have a new podcast up, titled 'The Mixnmojo Campfire'. It's with the same team as the cook-chase, but the format is a bit longer and more relaxed. In this edition, we talk about Indie adventure games -- specifically Daedalic Entertainment and Wadjet Eye, as well as related sub-topics: tone, voice acting, gameplay, etc.

We are joined by the bearded Paul Franzen, who wrote the Indie adventure game Life in the Dorms. He is also founder and editor of Game Cola and writes a blog about yard sales.

The eBay item featured in our regular feature 'I found it on eBay' can be observed here.

    I've got an original Full Throttle. Don't know if it's that fancy VGA-grade, but it's definitely an official CD release from Lucasarts. Got it at EB back in the day, it was probably secondhand because I think I bought the Phaton Menace on PSX at the same time, or maybe it was the Infernal Machine. Either way, best purchase of the day. Still love me some Phantom PSX though.

    That SOMI CD sleeve auction has been up forever, but it had a less humorous description before. The asking prices for those VGA graded games are insane. I wonder how many actually go for a grand...

    Enjoyable episode!
    Dave Gilbert from WEG created the Shivah, the Blackwell series and Emerald City Confidential. He published Gemini rue, Resonance, Primordia, but also puzzle bots. His games are great :)

    Some other crazy lucasarts related swag on ebay:
