Despite the guy reminding me of Mulder with a fancier trench coat, this game doesn't look nearly as bad as many of the other games you do.

Also, seriously, how awesome is the interrobang‽

INTERROBANG‽

Wow. I love you guys even more now. Well done.

Oh yeah, and the rest of the episode was good, too. Whatever.

So i'm probably going insane (again), but am i the only one who watched this after 'Reduce Your Footprint' and thought when Russell claimed the corpse:

Hmm the land of russell has to have a very low carbon footprint, crowfeet are tiny.

Loved the video.

Great video

one thing I was surprised their wasn't a joke about was the fact that I couldn't tell what time it was supposed to take place in. The girl looks like she is wearing modern clothes but gets a letter sealed with wax. the guy is warring clothes that could be from the early 1900's (although he could just be eccentric) and writes for what looks like a modern glossy photoshopped magazine, but he does so on a type writer. I could buy that they are from different time periods or something do to weird magic or what not, but I don't know what period they are supposed to be from individually.

And It doesn't matter how cold the water is, or that it was stormy, or that it was dark outside. I doubt that she could have swam from that boat to that island wearing those clothes under ideal conditions, let alone while keeping the hat.

This is just a stab in the dark: Graham and Paul, have you ever considered coupling the Unskippable video with a blog post reviewing the game, or at least go into more detail in the first post in the two threads? It seems a good opportunity to get more of a discussion going.

I actually shouted 'Yes!' really loudly when I read that. In a room full of people. That lost me some respect, but I'm okay with that. Because OMG LRR HAVE PLANS! And when has that ever not been an awesome thing?

My old college newspaper was called The Interrobang...made me look it up and I instantly fell in love with it.
