This week in Your Parents Basement, we are saving sleepover babes from vampires , kind of! From 1992, but really 1986, we’re playing Night Trap by Digital Pictures for the Sega CD at first, but then, the 3DO and PCs.

– According to Price Charting, pretty much any Sega CD game costs a lot, as we mentioned on the show. Night Trap is probably the most popular Sega CD game, beaten out by maybe only Sonic CD, and it still costs $24.99 for just the disc, and $66 for the box and manual included. Pretty much any decent Sega CD game is in the $30 to $300 range.
– We mention a Night Trap documentary several times on the show, and it’s this wonderful one here on YouTube.
– The Night Trap re-release will be available on the online stores for the PS4 and Steam. Unfortunately, the physical copies on Limited Run Games have already sold out, but you should bookmark them anyway because they have some neat stuff from time to time.
I have the 32x CD version and yeah, it’s awful, but the historical nature of the game inspired me to order the limited run version on PS4. That and that documentary you mentioned surprised me at how much they cleaned up the footage. Looking forward to experiencing the awfulness again in HD.
[…] – C-SPAN has video from the 1992 Congressional hearings, which you can see here. It also features “shout-outs” to previous YPB games Mortal Kombat and Night Trap! […]
