After a bit of a rest we're back with another commentary, continuing to mercilessly cleave through the the Dave era. Next on our hit list is Officer Rimmer, and whether or not we can get over the fact that it ended way too abruptly and actually talk about the episode itself is something you will have to discover yourself by listening, but what I will tell you that our commentary is followed by another edition of Waffle Men in which we delve into the history of telethons and logos.

Simulants' Revenge - Full Playthrough featured image

EDIT (21/09): Thanks to MiloScat (double thanks, in fact, since he was the one to get us looking into the same in the first place) we've very quickly discovered that the version we play here is in fact a medium fidelity version and there's at least a high and low fidelity version. We've now repackaged the downloads to include these versions. This also clears up speculation in the video and in this article regarding the visuals, as the high fidelity version seems to have all the visual features seen in the screenshots.

Back in 2003, TOS and a company called Blue Beck launched the first ever official Red Dwarf game, Simulants' Revenge. Billed as the first of a "host" of new games, it would sadly be the only example of its kind and the only official game to be made for the next decade plus. It was made for the then prominent mobile platform J2ME (if you had a phone in the early to mid 2000s that produced actual colour images it was probably running this platform) but it quickly fell off the face of the earth as GNP's short lived foray into the mobile space was put on ice. After a question submitted to an episode of DwarfCasts piqued our interests we promptly tracked down a copy to fill a 17 year gap in our collective knowledge, so we can now present to you a full run through of the game with colour commentary from Jonathan Capps, Danny Stephenson and Ian Symes...

It's been a little while but we're back to finish off Infinity Welcomes Careful Drivers with Part Three: Earth - a part that is as almost as short as its title. What isn't short, however, is the discussion as Ian Symes, Danny Stephenson and Jonathan Capps gather to mull over the myriad references to It's A Wonderful Life, the nature of reality, and the logistical challenges of spit roasting a giraffe.

Following on from our 11 year old revelation that DwarfCasting a review is so much easier than writing one, we present to your our thoughts on the documentary series The First Three Million Years. In attendance was the definitive Ian Symes, reused footage of Danny Stephenson from the DVD docs and a five second mention of Jonathan Capps tacked onto the end.
