gaming

In 2001, I was slowly allowed to start buying PC games that I liked with my allowance. The first few titles were stuff available off the Big Lots store shelf, as they were often cheaper. Things like Bugdom and Disney’s Atlantis: Trial by Fire. However, one winter evening near Christmas a game caught my attention. It was a game by the name of Fargate, and it was 50% off in a bargain bin when I had walked in that day. I HAD to get it, considering it looked to be a more complicated game than the “standard” education games I’d play.

It was quite a trip. I had technical difficulties with the game for several years so I never played it past the 4th stage. When I went to college in 2010, I discovered my issues stemmed from the CD being scratched around the rim. I found a cheap replacement copy on eBay and proceeded to beat the game not too far after.

My original manual from 2001, along with the more recently acquired CD case from eBay. I possess the box but was not able to find it for publishing this interview.

When I started to do my interview series, Fargate was one of the games I had an easier time finding people who worked on. In addition to finding such little background information on the game, I felt a proper notation in the interwebs was needed.

Last year I got to interview William from PetiteGames about his projects. At the time a comic was supposed to accompany the interview (making light of the abrupt piano “death” sound in Midnight) but was lost due to a corrupt PSD. Due to some hardships in 2017 I never got around to drawing this myself, so I asked my friend Christina for help with this. She was glad to, and we got finally done at the beginning of the year.

 

Do enjoy, and keep an eye out for William’s stuff on the Nintendo Wii store!

Week 6’s montage is up! At this point I’m playing Mercy 75% of the time, not quite a Mercy main but getting there.

Also due to a recent conversation with my brother (Robuster), he’s allowing me to post his POTG’s on my channel as well. So you’ll see a few in this video, but I’ll upload his separately from now on.

Apologies if the blending isn’t too smooth, I’m not at my regular facilities this November.
