Here in the US we’re entering 5 excruciating weeks of nauseating good sentiments laced with unabashed commercialism Sick so I thought it’d be a good time to post a scene from one of the very few games that let you play a real, bona fide villain: Cryo’s Salammbo (I almost typed “Kheops” there, since it was made by the guys who would found Kheops a couple of years later, and it feels very much like a Kheops game).

I’ve never heard of this game but by god that frame is /ugly/. Why would anyone ever choose to go for that - it reminds me of Will Smiths clothing from the early 90’s!

Actually, the game is renowned for having a stylish graphics (perhaps a bit too strong colors for my taste) and for a good reason, as comic artist Philippe Druillet worked on it.

I didn’t know there were games where you could play as a villain. That’s an extremely refreshing idea. Just put Salammbo on my to play list.

There’s Malcolms Revenge (Kyrandia 3), Ceville, and more recently, Lucius Smile

 

     

Duckman: Can you believe it? Five hundred bucks for a parking ticket?
Cornfed Pig: You parked in a handicapped zone.
Duckman: Who cares? Nobody parks there anyway, except for the people who are supposed to park there and, hell, I can outrun them anytime.

Kyrandia 3 doesn’t count: Malcolm spends the entire game going on about how he’s not a real villain , didn’t murder the king but was actually trying to save him, etc. I actually hated that the designers chickened out and retconned the events from the first game rather than let players play an actual villain. Meh
