It's amazing how much our world has changed in the past 25 years. Also amazing is the sensation of realizing that this year is the 25th anniversary of the release of SPISPOPD
(also of DOOM, but really, who remembers that game?). To celebrate (about 9 months too soon - Dec 10, 1993 was the release date), I've uploaded SPISPOPD to Itch.io
for your perusal. Most people won't be able to figure out how to install it or run it. It is not something that will work out of the box, at all
. But of note is the fact that the legendary SpisFAQ is also available on that page. Check it out, as it's full of incredibly important knowledge from 25 years ago.
For a quick run-down on playing SPISPOPD, if you are technically inclined (this is info for SMASH247.ZIP - SPISEDIT.ZIP is similar, but more complex to run): You need to open up the zip file, unzip SPIS.ZIP into a folder, then unzip VOC.ZIP into a folder named VOC inside that folder. Then run DosBox, mount the folder as a drive in dosbox (type "mount c d:\myspisfolder"), go to the drive in DosBox (type "C:"), and then run the game by typing SMASH. I think that's it. Sound most likely won't work, but by gum the music sure will! You will never forget the music. It'll make you long for Stockboy's chart-topping tunes.
Anyway, I am nearing the end of old games to upload to Itch.io! Just so you know, the last remaining non-flash games I have (unless there are others buried somewhere I can find) are Ninja Kitty Vs. The Nukebots, Medusa's Lament, Rise of the Owls, Scarecrow: Heart of Straw, and Castle Smash. So those are coming soon. Then I guess I have to start making new games
? Nah, I'll just figure out how to share the flash games.
