News from all over #2 16 Apr, 2008, 15:25 / 8 comments

"Andygeers" from Geero.net published an article last month that explores the possibility of using LucasArts style adventure games to promote Divine Truth. A quote:

"LucasArts has a long tradition of rather weedy protagonists, like Guybrush Threepwood, Bernard Bernoulli, and (if your memory stretches that far back) the somewhat second-rate reporter Zak McKracken. Such down-to-earth characters allow you to easily convey the fact that there's nothing remotely worthy about them, and to keep the spotlight firmly on God."

Also from last month is Grim Fandango fan music from OC Remix.org. It's called "The Enlightened Alaskan," and was new (at least) to me.

And finally, results from Destructoid.com's Sam & Max Photoshop contest can already be see on the web-site's comments section. Some of them are very persuasive.

    So, controlling characters who have no free will and making them do things they wouldn't normally do, all of which is hysterical when they actually break the fourth wall and mention that "Its as if someone else were controlling my hand.", is just LucasArts creating God-sims?

    Play Day of the Tentacle, and absolve your sins!

    Apparently we're a "Monkey Island fansite."

    Well, the name IS taken from that very game, so I do see how it could be easy to make the assumption =)

    Second to last paragraph in the article:

    If you don’t have a clue what I mean by that, a good place to start would be the Monkey Island fansite The International House of Mojo, or the ScummVM project.
