The Last Express by Jordan Mechner Part One

We discuss from the beginning to Vienna’s bad ending in Jordan Mechner’s 1997 game ‘The Last Express’. After years of pestering, Herds finally gets his way as we begin our detour into interactive mystery fiction with his favourite classic adventure game. We board the Orient Express alongside Robert Cath, who finds his acquaintance Tyler Whitney dead on the floor of his carriage. With no ticket, no plan and the police after him, Cath sets about trying to survive the journey with a vibrant cast of characters that speak to a world on the verge of war.
We’re also joined by James Dalton, chief archivist for the Australian Railway Historical Society NSW to talk about our own rail history, and the important work that volunteer archivists do in maintaining the history of the world’s railways.
