Hello Mastodon! Let's start as I mean to go on by posting about a random DOS game. No idea where this service got the name from but it probably wasn't from Lane Mastodon vs. The Blubbermen, a 1988 Infocom release. These "Infocomics" were their other type of interactive fiction being a branching comic book. It's good silly fun, ahead of it's time for the idea, behind it's time for the tech with the Infocomics being possibly the last commercial games to only offer composite CGA graphics.
Massive thanks to all of you, we can't do this without the community!
If you also want to send in a voice message, you can email a clip to firstname.lastname@example.org
And of course you can join us on http://dosgameclub.com and discuss all the games in our forums
There doesn't seem to be a good and easy way to legally obtain the original game - only the "Extreme" enhanced edition is available on GOG.
I guess archive.org and eBay to the rescue...
DOS Game Club is a podcast and forum about old MS-DOS computer games from the 1980s and 1990s. You can follow at:
The hosts are also worth following as they post lots of retro computing stuff:

Well, it seems like we couldn't find an early enough date to even record our episode 67 about Quake.
So expect it to be a couple days late, as we will actually record after the usual publication date.
Ah well. That gives all of you more time to send us voice messages with your thoughts about the game to email@example.com.
Very excited for KKND month in DOS Game Club, where the only thing I'll say is "Krush, Kill, AND Destroy? In this economy?!"
I never played it before but it should be fun even if it ends up being a clunky game.
Also apparently the website for the series from the 90s is still up?!
We joined Mastodon yesterday, in four days we're going to start playing KKND: Krush Kill 'N Destroy with the club and now we find this out that there's a "War Mastodon" in this game.
This *can't* be pure coincidence. It's a sign.
