+Frederik Olsen​ and I are going to be honoring +Joshua Mandel​ this Wednesday. Because we love the man. Check it out live as it happens.
 
The Back Seat Designers are back to honor a true legend of adventure game design, Josh Mandel. Join us as we extol the virtues of one of the most prolific and funny writers of the adventure game genre, famous for such classics as Space Quest 6 and Callahan's Crosstime Saloon.
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Back Seat Designers. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

With a whole day to spare, download my entry for #AdventureJam  2015: the spine-tingling retro adventure game, What's In the Safe?

#adventuregames   #gamejam  
My submission for #AdventureJam 2015 is a short first-person point-and-click adventure of epic proportions. You are sent on a quest by an old partner-in-crime to retrieve a fabled, arcane artifact...

Translation: "We really don't understand what 'hacking' means, but we saw that movie Hackers and those kids looked like they were up to no good. So, um, nope!"
The Entertainment Software Association doesn’t want anyone to restore the functionality of older videogames that are no longer supported by their publisher, because, says ESA, this is “hacking,” and all hacking is “associated with piracy.”

That's gonna hurt in the morning? Probably not. Norwegian band Tombstones were one of two warm-up bands to yesterday's gig with +EYEHATEGOD ... and they did appear to have fun. Even though the guitarist had to throw his guitar away mid-song, pick up a new and start tuning it, while the band kept playing.

Didn't get home until 3am. Our headlining band didn't go on until 11.30pm. That's a bit late on a Tuesday, don't you think? Yes. Yes, it is.

Went to see +Devin Townsend​ last night in Copenhagen. Snapped two pictures during one of the early songs, then became so entranced with the music that I completely forgot I had a camera for the rest of the show.

Therein lies the true measure of a good show: How few shitty mobile pictures you snapped.

Had a great time taping the first episode of season 2 of our podcast +Back Seat Designers with +Frederik Olsen last night. Downloading the video, adding the intro and then re-uploading it turned out to be quite the marathon endeavor, though -- I'll have to find some way of streamlining that process -- and I have no idea why the video has that "windowed" mid-90's FMV look. That's a headache for next week when we do episode 2, I guess. Anyway, take a look.

And yet I still got a mail notification that you'd left that comment on our YouTube video. Peculiar.

On the one hand, Rihanna's "What's My Name?" is a paltry, infuriatingly stupid song built around a lazy hook and a guest appearance by a person who wouldn't know talent if it came up and ate his face.

On the other hand, maybe it's a startlingly heartbreaking song about a young girl afflicted with Alzheimer's who persistently asks her grandmother to help her remember her name.

Oh, na-na, what's my name?
It's alright, sweetie. Just let sweet oblivion take you.

Penis: "Wait. Just a little one. Blub. Yup, now I'm done."
Me: "Okay, I'm gonna give you a little wipe."
Penis: "Thanks, man, I needed that."
Me: "You sure you're done? I just gave you two dabs."
Penis: "Yeah, that one was just a bit of residue. I'm done now."
Me: "You're absolutely sure? 'Cos I just dabbed you three times and there was still some--"
Penis: "Look, I'm fine, alright? Just stick me back in your pants and let's get out of here."
Me: "All right. If you say you're done, you're done."
Penis: "Yay, warmth! All right!"
Me: "Hey, what the f--"
Penis: "BLUURB! Hahahahaa!"
Me: "You fucker! I hate you!"
Penis: "I know! Top kek!"

My entry for the #MeatlyJam  2015 game jam had all the makings of a classic epic but, unfortunately, inspiration left me just when I needed it. This is as far as I got.

I'm excited for #AdventureJam  going down April 3rd - April 17th! That's why I'm pulling out all the stops and going absolutely nostalgic gaga over the graphics. To your left: a picture of what appears to be a tiny Millennium Falcon frozen in the ground by +Stuart Moore -- to your right: my C64-tastic edit of said photo.

Introduction
Hi. I am the Space Quest Historian, and I also do other things. Sometimes I listen to abrasive cyber/industrial metal music; sometimes I chill out with synth-pop electronica stuff. Sometimes I bash drums; sometimes I gently touch the piano. Sometimes I stroke the piano. Sometimes I finger it. Sometimes I fondle it. Oftentimes, the piano really bears the brunt of my objectophilia, which is probably why we don't have a piano at the house.

Oh, I also play a bunch of adventure games, listen to music (as long as the piano is well-tempered and fingered appropriately), play music (whenever time permits and the piano is willing and, perhaps through some cleaning exercise, wet), watch horror movies with my wife, or just generally spend time with my wife whom I love and have yet to tell about my horrible fixation with pianos.

I have a podcast about Space Quest which you can find on iTunes, Stitcher Radio and via RSS feeds, but most importantly here: www.spacequesthistorian.com

I also have a podcast about adventure games in general with +Frederik Olsen called Back Seat Designers which you can find on Stitcher Radio, RSS feeds and not iTunes, but most importantly here: backseatdesigners.podbean.com. (We're also on Twitter and have a very nice Facebook group.)

I work in Communications and specialize in social media and crowdfunding consultancy (when I'm not molesting pianos), but fancy myself an adventure game writer/designer.
