New article for Halloween: you are invited to Ghosts and Weird, two spooky virtual museum CD-ROMs about the paranormal. Featuring ghost stories told by Sir Christopher Lee! 👻💀👽
On 11/9, join The Obscuritory Charity Tea Party Marathon 2019 to raise money for Trans Lifeline! Featuring weird old CD-ROM games and lots of tea!
I had gotten started on an article about a multimedia CD-ROM, only to learn that the producer, who put his name and face all over it, has a long history of sexual harassment. It's a really conceptually interesting CD-ROM, but it's tied so closely to his vision that it totally taints the program. I'm struggling about whether to write about it at all now
Oh my god, the UI for this game is amazing. I'll play anything that looks like it was made with some sort of default Windows form application development kit. Like Progress Quest but for real.
Gonna have to use the XP laptop though, this one won't run on 64-bit machines. I expect I'll run into that problem a lot
