LGR Test Command Prompt

New addition to the LGR website I’m testing out. It’s a (mostly) working MS-DOS prompt in your browser! Just type in the commands you’d expect, browse to LGR pages and random games playable in-browser. Huge thanks to Mike for coding this!

Anyway, as I’m a part of RWTV now, I’m in this episode! And will be in subsequent episodes, too. In this one, I talk about Sierra On-Line specifically.

An oft-forgotten classic by the guys who went on to make the Descent games, this is not only one of the few magazine-inspired games but one of the most unique racers of its day. Not many driving games provide a parking lot as a selectable track!
