One of the best remakes of a game I’ve played [Space Quest 1 Vga, LSL1VGA and QFG1VGA are other’s I can think of right now.. well Tex Murphy Overseer is a badass remake of Mean Streets too kindof].

The flaws: no Tim Curry, Efrem Zimbalist, Jr., annoying clipping error in Jackson Square, and the weather effects were too random for me, would have liked more consistency there. The pluses: Attention to detail, the comic scenes are wayyyy coool, ran kind of slow on my computer, the hint system [it was really great how i rarely exited and had to look through a walkthrough] and new GUI much more user friendly.

Looking forward to what Pinkerton Studios has next, this one was much better than I was anticipating, keep up the good work Jane and Team!

Bonus anecdote.

On the Saturday I went looking for lunch with Alasdair Beckett-King and Alex Henn from the publisher he is working with on Nelly Cootalot. We made our way from the venue to the shopping centre at Elephant and Castle (an interesting subway maze puzzle) and looked for food shops. We ended up in a national supermarket opposite the subtly named “Meat n Meat”. Alasdair is a vegan.

Josue Monchan does not just have a great presenting style and translation skills.

One of the game exhibitors, set up in front of the windows at the front of the venue, only had a slideshow on display. There was a particular screenshot they preferred so we set the slideshow running and the developer posed behind it. The screenshot comes up, and I reel off six quick photos to make sure I get a usable one.

Reviewing those photos I find Josue has performed a perfect photobomb. Through the window he is seen entering shot from the left in picture 1 and exiting on the right in pcture 6

Interesting article, I really enjoyed reading that. Smile
As flawed as their games may be, I can’t help but hope for the best for Pendulo. I do not share the disdain others seem to have for them and their games.

Ah, I thought I wasn’t going to get a mention but then the Paracetamol incident saved the day! :-D

I don’t know but this ended up being my most favourite modern Telltale game! I know it is not much of an adventure game than a choose your own adventure narrative, this game rocked my world. It is hilarious, paced well and totally awesome sci-fi adventure full with flawed characters. It is a great break from the whole dreary and gritty worlds of TWD, TWAU and GOT.

Anecdote time. At the end of each day there was a raffle. All those taking part were encouraged to bring along prizes, both good and “pants” Having grabbed what I had to hand that was vaguely related, my offerings were definitely in the latter category.

Day one raffle and I have tickets 1 to 5. The tickets are drawn and one by one people pick prizes from the table. Eventually only my rubbish prize for day one is left, to be followed by the big bag of goodies that is always drawn last.

The ticket for,my prize is drawn and it is 1. I make a joke of collecting my own prize, because I’ve still won, right? I’m asked to draw the big bag ticket, and do a big show of digging around in the ticket bag, followed by an elaborate sweeping gesture to maintain the tension. As it comes to rest in front of my eyes and the microphone is put in front of me I see the number. It’s 2.

This just goes to show how quickly gamedev can work… we’ve made a decision to make all the graphics in Captain Disaster the same cartoony style.  Ben doesn’t mind… I don’t think! :-D

Descriptions of previous events have been portioned out in item descriptions. If you walk around examining key items, Victor recaps the story of the game so far. For instance, if you examine the tea pot on the table, Victor retells how he made the tea party fall asleep etc. We considered a “Previously on”-splash page but we thought a distributed approach was more elegant and less obtrusive.

It isn’t loudly signposted, no. But that doesn’t mean it’s not there.

Oh well.

I haven’t bought it yet, but I likely will. I’ve watched a couple of playthroughs on youtube. So, unless they blow it, I will buy it when it’s all over.

I don’t love the episodic format, I hadn’t been exposed to it before Cognition, and I came to that shortly before Ep4 was coming out. Having to wait two months…well, when Ep4 came out I had other things on my plate. So, with the Walking Dead I waited, and here I will wait.

You can imagine how I feel about my 100 bucks I paid for Dreamfall at this point heh

The characters look fully 3D with a toon shader slapped on and not hand drawn. That head turn is too smooth to be 2D.

Glad you are taken attention to this forgotten gem (series), a well deserved Score/Rating.
