I just wanted to call out what I see as the educational and enjoyment value of the great graphic adventure games. During Lockdown I let my son (then aged 6) play my adventure games on Steam.
The combination of the verb bars, voice acting and subtitles brought about a breakthrough with his reading.
He consumed Fate of Atlantis and Thimbleweed Park. We tried Monkey Island Special Edition but he didn’t like the controls. In classic mode it didn’t have voices.
This week I finally managed to get the Ultimate Talkie Edition working for him. To say he adored it (now aged 7) is an understatement.
Thank you Ron. Just about to commence LeChuck’s Revenge.
