Free game of the day

Due to the game’s terrible controls I simply hadn’t realized you could in fact swing the rope like in most games with ropes.

There is a vaguely interesting reversed gravity puzzle now.

I’m mostly playing based on sunk cost fallacy by this point, coupled with having experienced one or two promising physics puzzles that were better than the preceding slog, plus a not entirely uninteresting forced walking on a conveyor belt puzzle.

The first hour or so of the essentially bad game carries it on atmosphere alone, which is quite an achievement.

I’ll write down my final thoughts once I presumably reach that mulling woman my character probably wants to impale and devour or some such.

Did you even read what the game is about? Not that it gives a lot of backstory…
“Uncertain of his sister’s fate, a boy enters LIMBO…”
That’s it. No more background story…not in words at least.

You wouldn’t like Game Theory, I guess. :wink:

I might be reading between the lines here, but I think perhaps Frenzie isn’t a fan so far :wink:

Is that a course where they suck all the fun out of a game by overanalysing, similar to literature courses?

It was in reference to literature courses, but yeah, that’s a good point too! :smile:

Anyhoo, here are some Game Theory videos that align with my general mindset:

(If only I’d thought to make badly animated videos in the early 2010s I could have been MatPat, so to speak.)

And yes, in the parlance of the theorist community, all of our MI theories are also game theories.

PS Overanalyzing literature is fun. :-D.

PPS Limbo is obviously just the continuation of Monkey Island 2.

Guybrush’s parents died in a car(t) crash. He was unable to process the tragic event and now he’s under hypnosis therapy. LeChuck is his painful memories personified. He’s a zombie ghost pirate because these memories were previously repressed, but now they’ve come back to haunt him.

At the end of MI2, Guybrush fails to find closure in Big Whoop. We all know how that works out. Then his psychiatrist — pardon, his Psychonaut — comes up with the plan to further explore adult Guybrush’s child’s repressed anguishes. LeChuck now takes the form of a giant spider, and “Elaine,” closure over his parents’ car(t) crash is once again his final goal like in Monkey Island.

Isn’t “oi” a Punjabi phrase??

It´s cockney-english.

I thought it was Australian

:face_with_raised_eyebrow: You seem to be shockingly little aware of the scottish origins of the members of your favourite band.

Oh, but I am… but for the sake of argument, I chose to ignore that.

Plus emigrating to another country, in casu Australia, at the age of 6, 8 or 10 has caused picking up an accent that I wouldn’t associate with Scottish.

Any further questions? :smile:

Nay…

Edit: @TaarakVakil is the outfit in this cover version at all Indian in nature?

(It’s amazing how many music vids there are…)
