We finally did it! Another classic SCUMM game. Oh man, this is why we do this podcast. Hopefully you enjoyed playing Zak as well, but even if you didn’t, you’ll probably still get a kick out of this blast from the past.
We do some quick intro information, we get into the history and making-of around the 5:45 mark, and really get into the gameplay around 19:15. We play some “What’s The Beer? What’s The Song?” around 32:00 and finish things up talking about next month’s game at 39:30. Enjoy!
As always, you can find the podcast in these places:
- That book we keep mentioning is Rogue Leaders: The Story of LucasArts by Rob Smith, and it’s a fantastic overview of the history of LucasArts with thousands of stories and illustrations. I always learn something new every time I open it up.
- Jason’s beer was Wood Folk by Collective Brewing and his song was “If I Could Fly” by Joe Satriani
- Ben’s beer was Anchor Steam and his song was “Pardon Me” by Incubus
