So, to get Cutthroat Bill to join my crew, I need to show him gold. Blondebeard has a gold tooth *and* wants something crunchy to eat. There's a mud puddle in front of the chicken shop and I know I can use the pie pan to dig for gold there, so that's the obvious part.
Bill has a Jawbreaker, which is a bit too obvious so I think that's definitely a red herring.
What else to serve Blondebeard, though?
@wouter Haha, yeah, though the way he said it, it was clear it wasn't LeChuck. But that made it only funnier.
And I'm finally done, on the last evening of my vacation and just hours before RTMI comes out. Perfect timing. Only that I won't be home before Tuesday evening 😵💫
Took three hints from the UHS in the end. Not a bad result for someone who loves adventure games but really, *really* sucks at them.
All in all a pretty good game, IMHO.
Captured the spirit of the originals without copying them. The art style and animation were enjoyable and the voice acting is perfect.
@48kRAM Yeah, it's pretty good! Read some people complain about it not being made by Ron Gilbert, but I very much enjoy it.
@rnlf Yeah, same. I take it for what it is and honestly I dig some of the humor in it just fine. Didn't seem out of place, despite it being a pretty radical departure graphically.
