Adventure Game Scene of the Day — Wednesday 26 December 2012
Hello everyone, and welcome to Day 2 of the Scenies!
After the Award for Most Predictable Yet Unpredictable Plot Twist yesterday, we move on to the next category today: the Award for Best Shit Blown Up This Year. As you might expect, this award recognizes excellence in crafting a scene in which shit gets blown up.
Once again, there was a lot of competition this year. We all hold our breath as the envelope is opened and the winner is revealed to be . . .
(even more drumroll)
Blowing up the giant robot chicken, from Space Quest: Incinerations by Box of Mystery!
In a year that had Sherlock Holmes blowing up everything in his path and zombies flying every which way, SQ: Incinerations might look like the underdog, but seriously: what could be better than blowing up A GIANT ROBOT CHICKEN??
I am not a huge fan… erm, I mean, the Scenies Academy is not a huge fan of the Space Quest series, nor is it particularly fond of fan games, but SQ: Incinerations is easily one of the best games of the year, commercial releases included. With a huge, ambitious plot, clever puzzles, exciting 3D cutscenes and A GIANT ROBOT CHICKEN GETTING BLOWN UP, it definitely deserves all the recognition it can get.
So, that’s it for Day 2. See you tomorrow for more!
