I don’t know but this ended up being my most favourite modern Telltale game! I know it is not much of an adventure game than a choose your own adventure narrative, this game rocked my world. It is hilarious, paced well and totally awesome sci-fi adventure full with flawed characters. It is a great break from the whole dreary and gritty worlds of TWD, TWAU and GOT.

Anecdote time. At the end of each day there was a raffle. All those taking part were encouraged to bring along prizes, both good and “pants” Having grabbed what I had to hand that was vaguely related, my offerings were definitely in the latter category.

Day one raffle and I have tickets 1 to 5. The tickets are drawn and one by one people pick prizes from the table. Eventually only my rubbish prize for day one is left, to be followed by the big bag of goodies that is always drawn last.

The ticket for,my prize is drawn and it is 1. I make a joke of collecting my own prize, because I’ve still won, right? I’m asked to draw the big bag ticket, and do a big show of digging around in the ticket bag, followed by an elaborate sweeping gesture to maintain the tension. As it comes to rest in front of my eyes and the microphone is put in front of me I see the number. It’s 2.

This just goes to show how quickly gamedev can work… we’ve made a decision to make all the graphics in Captain Disaster the same cartoony style.  Ben doesn’t mind… I don’t think! :-D

Descriptions of previous events have been portioned out in item descriptions. If you walk around examining key items, Victor recaps the story of the game so far. For instance, if you examine the tea pot on the table, Victor retells how he made the tea party fall asleep etc. We considered a “Previously on”-splash page but we thought a distributed approach was more elegant and less obtrusive.

It isn’t loudly signposted, no. But that doesn’t mean it’s not there.

Oh well.

I haven’t bought it yet, but I likely will. I’ve watched a couple of playthroughs on youtube. So, unless they blow it, I will buy it when it’s all over.

I don’t love the episodic format, I hadn’t been exposed to it before Cognition, and I came to that shortly before Ep4 was coming out. Having to wait two months…well, when Ep4 came out I had other things on my plate. So, with the Walking Dead I waited, and here I will wait.

You can imagine how I feel about my 100 bucks I paid for Dreamfall at this point heh

The characters look fully 3D with a toon shader slapped on and not hand drawn. That head turn is too smooth to be 2D.

Glad you are taken attention to this forgotten gem (series), a well deserved Score/Rating.

I love the fact that they are still making them, but there just got to be too many busy work/filler puzzles for me. As for the interface, I have seen so many people begging them to update. I, for one, opted on their boards several times simply asking for them have skippable dialogue. I always played these with the text displayed/voices off, yet would have to sit on the same screen for 1-2 minutes while they still went through the speech that I read on screen in 15 seconds,unable to do anything else. It was maddening.

That being said, I do go through spurts of picking up a couple of the new ones now and then. I’m sure I’ll get around to them eventually.

I disagree incometrader. I’ve been a loyal fan of these games since the 2nd one. I have bought every single one since 1999 and watched everything from graphics to interface and gameplay evolve as time has gone on.
We get 2 of these a year, hardly hidden object sweatshop, and quality wise….hardly hidden object sweat shop.

I only play adventure PC games. Going on 2 decades now, from the time I was 7. I’m grateful for HerInteractive’s success with these games. I know that every year, I will get a decently challenging well thought out cozy adventure game because of them. Not every game in the franchise is a winner, there have been some real duds, but i’d say their track record is quite good.

I don’t who keeps buying these games to sustain so many frequent releases. I tried a few over the years, found them very dated and the review doesn’t give me hope that the awful interface will ever be improved.

Seems more like they are just mass produced in some sweat shop similar to incredible amount of adventure/hidden object hybrid games available.

It looks interesting, however it’s apparently impossible to find out how much this game actually costs without installing it, since it’s “free” but with in-app purchases. Pretty annoying.

Another piece of Zarf genius! Love the recall mechanic, and the reset mechanic. I did not hear about the Kickstarter in time to back it, but I bought the game as soon as it came out. Good old fashioned hardcore puzzle IF. Give this man more money!
