Sometimes you just have to get together and play some games. This is one of those times. It has been a while since we have streamed anything live so we might be a tiny bit rusty, but that doesn’t mean it’s not going to be awesome. So what game(s) do we have on the docket?
Primarily, we will be focusing on one game: Dungeon Explorer. It’s a game where you explore dungeons. But that’s not all! It’s a game where you explore dungeons with FIVE PEOPLE.
Dungeon Explorer was released in 1989 for the TurboGrafx-16. If you are like me, you have never even seen a TurboGrafx-16 in real life, but take it on good authority that it did exist in some form twenty years ago. All of the images that I have seen of it couldn’t have been doctored, could they?
Story-wise, Dungeon Explorer goes something like this, according to Wikipedia:
It centered around the quest of several heroes to find the Ora Stone for the former king of Oddesia. When the alien race that now rules the land invaded, the stone was hidden deep in the dungeons of the land by the King to keep it safe. Now, however, the king wants the players to recover the stone, which can bring life, light, and happiness, and to kill the alien king, Natas: King Satan. The heroes progress through several different dungeons and fight fearsome bosses such as Bullbeast and Grimrose, and finally recover the Ora stone. Upon giving it to the king, however, the king reveals himself as Natas and steals the stone. Additionally, a guard named Judas also betrays the heroes, but is defeated by them. The adventurers then chase and confront Natas, killing him and taking back the Ora stone and ushering in a time of peace.
Well, that pretty much ruins the story, but that’s not what we are worried about at this moment. What we are worried about is having tons of fun, and we want you to join in!
We will be playing DE on the Wii, because that is the best and easiest way to access the game at this point. Right now we do not have a specific time that we will be going live, but we will update you on that soon enough. Also, unlike past events, we do not have a specific charity that we are attempting to raise funds for. We simply are getting together to have a good time, so mark your calendar and get ready!
Update: Event scheduled to begin at 7pm CST.
