Which Game Are You Most Looking Forward To In 2017?

08 Jan, 2017, 01:08 | Posted by: Jennifer | Comments: 7
We're now a week into 2017, which means it's the perfect time for a new poll. We couldn't just put one up on the first day of the new year. That's just not The Mojo Way™.

There's a lot of goodness coming out this year, from just about every company that this site covers. So go to the poll on the right and let us know which one has you excited the most.

Mojo alumnus releases game, which seems to be par the course these days

13 Dec, 2016, 22:41 | Posted by: Remi | Comments: 1

You remember Benzo from such software as Quick and Easy, but that was back then. Now he has joined the ranks of Jake and other former Mojo drones by releasing a game of his own: a remake of the Amiga classic Atoms.

Currently only available for Android, you can run and download the game, and then cuss yourself for not having done more with your life.

Mojo wants to socialize with you, joins Instant Gram

Or "Instagram" as the kids call it.

After having rocketed past 2,000 Twitter followers… I mean, OK, it took us 7 years, but it took 6 of those to figure out how to use the damn thing. Where was I? Oh, yes:

We're on Instagram! As Mojolicious! Yes, the name is esoteric pretty awful, but it's 2016… How many decent Mojo related handles would you expect to be left?

So! Instagram! Where you probably are too. You should be our friend! Remember: Mojo loves you. Won't you love us back?

We interview Bill Tiller, and feel like we've done enough to coast us through to mid-2017

That's right. Sometimes we produce content. Sometimes even good content. Relevant content, even.

And this time, Jason has gone all out, with an interview with Bill Tiller which has more dirt than Rodkin's biopic deal. (As long as "dirt" means "exclusive content," that is.)

Run and read. You surely will be even more excited about Duke after plowing through this.

Indiana Jones and the Iron Phoenix, exhumed

Here at Mojo, we’ve always been particularly interested in the near-misses, the might-have-beens, the ones that didn’t make it. After all, we cheekily referred to all the released LucasArts adventure games as “Secret History,” so you can imagine how piqued the cancelled games must get us. And the loss of Indiana Jones and the Iron Phoenix, the would-be follow-up to the seminal Fate of Atlantis, probably registers second only to Sam & Max 2 on the Gnashing-Of-Teeth-O-Meter.

The game isn’t completely unknown, thanks to a comic adaptation, a few stray details and a much-circulated Anson Jew animation of Hitler’s face blowing up. But what this doomed title always lacked in my eyes was a definitive chronicle. And if Mojo wasn't going to do it, who the heck would?

Thus I reached out to all members of the team who were willing to share their memories (oh, and design documents) of the game, from its conception to its collapse. I do believe you’ll find the big honking article I pieced together from the results of minor interest.

Huge thanks go to Aric Wilmunder, who unearthed the materials that made this article possible and offered to time their release with our publication. Remi, as always, bailed me out with the header image. Enjoy!

Double Fine teases Psychonauts PS4 release, retracts, and then decides to release it after all

God knows what‘s going on over there at Double Fine, but after much back and forth, it seems Psychonauts has officially been released for the PS4. In the US at least—say thank you to soon-to-be-president Trump–Europe will have to wait a few weeks.

Lots of confusion, and we find it a safe bet to blame Spaff, who is bringing a scary amount of Mojo to Double Fine.

Mojo realizes it needs to justify itself, gets hyped on Duke Grabowski

05 May, 2016, 19:54 | Posted by: Jason | Be the first to comment!

As Jennifer reported this week, Duke Grabowski is no longer a bite-sized vanity project that the Autumn Moon guys (under the label "Venture Moon") will work on nights and weekends, but a full-length episodic adventure game with a publisher and everything. And episode one is out this summer!

To celebrate, we felt it would be useful to collect the media that the team has been trickling out over the last eighteen months. That's right, we've beaten the odds and updated the galleries. It hearkens back to the days when Mojo, if you can imagine, served as a resource for the games it covers.

Remember also to check out the Duke Grabowski Youtube Chanel for a collection of behind-the-scenes videos.

It's just our way of saying, "We don't think enough of you to trust that you can just Google this stuff."

We review "Day of the Tentacle Remastered" totally on time!

Well, tie me down and call me Betty—our Day of the Tentacle Remastered review was published in a timely manner, much thanks to Zaarin who buckled down and took one for the team. Yes, we’ve reached the point where playing a game ”on the clock” is considered something of a chore, which means we’re old and grumpy.

Anyway!

Not surprisingly Zaarin gives the game some love, and… Just read the damn thing. We bled to get this thing out on time.
