Welcome once again to a brand new episode of your favorite gaming related podcast, Fragments of Silicon. This week, we shall be welcoming Stephen Kick, CEO of Night Dive Studios for a interview. Night Dive is a rather unique outfit in the gaming scene at present as they are functioning as sort of great historical society for PC gaming.  Earlier this year they came out of nowhere todeliver onto digital service such as Stream and GOG one of the greatest games ever created, which had until then sadly been locked away in a void due to rights issues, System Shock 2.  Since then Night Dive has been hard at work unearthing more lost gems of the PC, both famous and cult, onto the modern day digital delivery services. Titles such as Shadow Man, The 7th Guest, The 11th Hour, I have No Mouth and I Must Scream and Wizardry 7, 8 and 9.  hopefully we shall gain some insight into the work that goes into rescuing thee classics from the dustbin of history. On our game discussion segment, in honor of Halloween, we shall be getting abstract and delve into the rationales and mechanics of horror games, see what makes them tick and why people love to get scared by them. Be sure to tune in live this Wednesday at 9:00 PM EDT/6:00 PM PDT or failing that be sure to download the recorded version that is made available soon after the live show.
