In Ladan’s last show before she joins the real world, Omar quizzes her on obscure video games - with mentions of the Gizmondo, Awesome Possum Kicks Dr. Machino’s Butt!, Punky Skunk, M.U.S.C.U.L.E, Butcher Icebone, and Sticky Balls.

We also reminisce about her Ladan’s first appearance on the show when she played Chubby Cherub on the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) in Super Apprentice, there is also chat about using Windows 8 and Microsoft Paint in Learning with Ladan and, if all that isn’t enough, Omar talks about indie game Oneiric Gardens, developed by Lilith which gives off a 90’s-Sega-Saturn-type-3D-vibe. There is also a mention for Whitney Chavis, and her Guinness World Record breaking Silent Hill collection.

Oneiric Gardens

Made by a developer called Lilith, Oneiric Garden is a surreal experience. It looks like a game on the Sega Saturn. Rough textures, blocky buildings, mismatched everything. That was the first thing I loved about this game. Developed Lilith say the game is based on interpretations of landscapes, drawn ”from half-remembered spaces, feelings.” You role in this game is to explore these spaces, with each world connected and see what they have to offer. It’s a small world, but gloriously looking especially if you appreciate 3d graphics from the 90s. And the atmosphere thick and heavy as a deep sleep. So get lost and download Oneiric Gardens at itch.io. It’ll run on Mac, pc and linux.

Prison break knew how to make anything dramatic. Even a birdbath.
