It's the AGI EGA original vs the SCI VGA remake!

Sierra Remake Comparison II: Leisure Suit Larry
This week Anna & Paul bring you the next installment in the Sierra Remake Series, this week they are comparing both versions of Leisure Suit Larry In The Land of the Lounge Lizards! It's EGA vs VGA, AGI vs SCI, Parser vs Point and Click!

This Was SO Last Year (RIP 2023)
This week Anna & Paul have a particularly casual conversation, looking back at all the CGG episodes from 2023, and then using their mouths to create sounds that are often- but not always- words, and then the goal here is that you like the words they say, which are again, inspired from them looking at past episodes and should potentially encapsulate feelings about said episodes.

Adventure Game Interfaces

Adventure Game Interfaces
This week Anna & Paul discuss things, using words. Mangia! Okay fine. They talk about interfaces, gooey's and unique game mechanics! What do I mean? Unclear! Okay okay, for starters, gooey is neat for GUI's which is less nerdy for Graphical User Interfaces. And by interfaces I mean Text Parser, 9 Verb, 2-Click, Sierra Point and Click, Verb Coin and maybe more. And by unique mechanics, well they look at innovative gameplay mechanics used in adventures games such as Resonance, Whispers of a Machine and others- look at some point you're just gonna have to listen to it, this is as far as I can take you.

Sierra Remake Comparison I: Police Quest
This week Anna & Paul are looking at all the Police Quest 1’s. Both Police Quest 1’s. The, the two different 1’s. See cos there’s Police Quest: In Pursuit of the Death Angel and then there’s Police Quest: In Pursuit of the Death Angel, again, for the first time. See, they’re both actually quite different and it’s not even- it’s not subtle. Oh yeah, did I mention this is the first in a lil mini series of comparing Sierra SCI/VGA remakes to their original counterpart? Cos it is.

Quest For Story: The Role of an Adventure Game’s Plot

Quest For Story: The Role of an Adventure Game’s Plot
This week Anna & Paul are doing words at you while under the direction of "talk about plots" and "make them good words". They are looking at adventure games with complex plots and adventure games with thin, straightforward plots and examining when one is better than the other and asking the question: how much does the plot of the story even matter, in adventure games? After all, it is rarely the main topic of conversation surrounding an adventure game, so why is that? Also, this episode is available in a video version, on YouTube!

This week Paul is joined by special guest Adventure Game Geek and they are going through their favorite scary, spooky and suspenseful adventure games! Sure it kind of devolved into ranking games from 0 to "has a pumpkin in it" and sure, what was supposed to be a list of scary games turned into more "well, at some point it's dark and raining, so that counts" but it's a fun time regardless.

Beavis and Butt-Head in Virtual Stupidity
This week Anna & Paul are taking you through a point and click adventure game that is often referred to as "surprisingly really good". What game is that? The one that's the title of the episode omg it's so long, don't make me type it out again. FINE, Beavis and Butthead in Virtual Stupidity. Okay I actually copied and pasted it, that wasn't so bad/sorry for yelling. Basically they attempt to give you a solid second hand experience with the game, essentially playing it for you. I mean they didn't really hit that mark but that, that's what was attempted. But they did have fun and laugh a lot so maybe you will too, who knows. Mangia! Wishlist our adventure game!

Anyway without spoiling the games mentioned, because I mean ca'mon, half the fun is finding out if they said the thing you wanted them to say, but the games mentioned span from 1984 to 2020 and for the first time, Paul mentions a non-adventure game!

Sacrificial Waffles: the Divine Comedy of Adventure Games
This week Anna & Paul embark on a journey of self growth, where you might say they learn a few things a long the way. Or maybe along the way. That's, spelling that word is one of the things they learned. If you're a fan of adventure games, laughter or Nietzsche, you're going to want to listen to this one, it's even got some accidental profundity at the end. Wanna know what's actually talked about in the episode? Fair enough. Defining adventure comedy, fourth wall breaking, red herrings, narration, in-jokes, visual gags, funny deaths, parody, straight-man characters and more! Actually and no more. Just those things I just said and nothing- not a single other thing, ever. Mangia! Wishlist our adventure game! The Phantom Fellows  Vote for TPF to be released on GOG!

Games for Your Inner or Actual Child
This week Anna & Paul are talking about kids games that you could totally play too if you want, we won't tell anyone what a bloody weirdo you are. We're talkin' your Pajama Sam, your Freddy Fish, your Adam (the kid from EcoQuest), your Pepper's Adventures in We Haven't Played That One Yet, we've got em all folks. We even share helpful tips on how to indoctrinate your own kids, as adventure gamers! Not helpful? Fine, we discuss the difference between edutainment and kids games and how adventure games teach kids how to think, not what to think. Mangia! Wishlist our adventure game!

Exploring Environments Made for Exploring Environments Made for
This week Anna & Paul get all whipped up over Adventurous Environments or Immersive Environments or whatever other versions of this show's title we didn't use, that also attempts to set an explorative mood. See like, Exploring Environments won because it's like, that's both what we did aaand it's what these environments were made for. For exploring. So. We explored them. Okay fine, we talk about realistic vs stylized worlds, how different graphical versions change the mood of a game, the ingredients for a proper atmosphere, Memphis design and like, 3-6 other things.
