Dungeon Master Edition

SNEScapades #66 Podcast cover feautring Dungeon Master, Kawasaki Caribbean Challenge, and Family Dog

Link couldn’t even be bothered to get far enough into Dungeon Master to get a proper screenshot of an actual character on a repeat playthrough for the cover art of this episode.

The theme of today’s episode is “Who thought this was a good idea?” Who thought it was a good idea to release a 6-year-old western computer RPG on a system that had some of the best RPGs for consoles? Who thought it was a good idea to make a game based on an imperiled animated sitcom that no one seemed to want? And who thought it was a good idea to release a minimal-effort, top-down racing game on a system that already had Top Gear and Mario Kart on it?

We can’t tell you the “why”, but we can tell you the how as we do some deep-dives into the creation of the original Atari ST smash Dungeon master and the dumpster fire that was the production of Family Dog. Also, we remember that we played Kawasaki’s Caribbean challenge this week. 

Not the best crop of games, but listening to us talk about them has to be better than playing them.
