With the year-end round coming up next week, the magazine time travel is brought forward to this Patreon-exclusive episode. The PC player era began 30 years ago with issue 1/1993 and we have the right interview clip in stock, which also includes Boris Schneider Johne reports to speak. Scrolling through the decades, we also come across voxel helicopters (1993), rival soccer managers (2003), and insane open-world shooters (2013). As always, before the main part there is a rich, up-to-date program of industry news, the latest gaming experiences and a look at the listener’s mail pile.
The game veteran podcast episode 50-2022 (#299) with Heinrich Lenhardt and Jörg Langer has a running time of 2:00:05 hours.
