Blue Toad Murder Files, Aaaaaafrikaaaaaaa, and 2 upcoming contests

Afrika Screenshot

For those who may not remember (or for those who missed it the first time… Afrika had ZERO presence) the player takes on the role of a photographer in a relatively unexplored region of Africa. After setting up base camp, requests come in via PC for things like "head-on shot of a zebra" or "monkey in a tree" and so on. At that point, it's up to the player to drive out into the savanna and get the required shots.

The Cash-in

HIGH Taking a long, lonely journey to fight a lost cosmonaut.

LOW The dumbbell-punching minigame you play to build up strength.

WTF I'm fighting a giant balloon?

Axel & Pixel Review

Absurdly Delightful

HIGH The surreal, abstract nature of the adventure.

LOW Putting important collectibles in action sequences without checkpoints.

Spikes... so many Spikes...

HIGH Utterly elegant from top to bottom.

LOW The difficulty of certain rooms is hateful.

WTF As if anyone could beat this game without a single death...

VVVVVV and Divinity II: Ego Draconis

If you read this blog even occasionally, then you probably know that I'm not much of a PC gamer. However, I do make the occasional exception for certain titles. This evening, one of those special cases found its way into my hardware: VVVVVV by Terry Cavanagh.

Although I had planned on doing more in-depth coverage of the game tonight, after some consideration I decided to hold off until I'm completely done. However, I will say that it's a pretty superb little title, and I'm enjoying the heck out of it.
