This week in Your Parents Basement, we’re plumbing through mystical lakes with naked ladies and the sphincters of caves in a quest for glory! From 1994, we’re playing Sierra’s Quest for Glory IV, with special guest Jovial John!

- 0:00 – Intro, which is from a treacherous lake in the game. The video is slightly NSFW, and viewable in part one and part two on YouTube. Also, we’re joined by Jovial John this week!
- 49:30 – We say nighty-nite to John, and start readin’ them emails!
- 1:03:00 – A snifferoo from next week’s show. It’s the funkiest game ever for the Genesis!
– As mentioned on the show, the best place to buy the Quest for Glory series nowadays is on GOG.com, which offers it DRM-free for $10. Check it out here.
– According to Price Charting, if you want the boxes and manuals for the games, they’re reasonably priced. The individual games range from $20 to $38, although the anthology is $87, which is a collection of the first four games from 1996. That was the most thorough collection before the GOG version in 2012.
– The Kickstarter-supported spiritual successor to Quest for Glory mentioned on the show is Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption. You can read more about it here.
– Also as mentioned on the show, this was the first video game voiceover role for Jennifer Hale, who has since done way more games. Corey Cole, one of the game designers for QFGIV, notes that John Rhys-Davies called it “the CD-ROM from Hell” because of the huge length of the script, in an awesome long piece on the game.
