The main character sounds like Drew.

The right man in the wrong place can make all the difference in the world.

SO MUCH VINNY! I love these Vinny QLs

Posted by theimmortalbum

Got too caught up listening to the podcast to try for the quest. Aww.

Posted by Carousel

Vinny should be in every quick look.

Even if it's just a picture of him in the corner of the screen.

Posted by rickytherapper

Loving this game so much.

Posted by Recall

I know nothing of this game, making it a perfect quicklook

@Morningstar: Oh if only. That game was nuts.
 Not to disparage this classy adventure game.

Wow I can't believe how much Vinny + Ryan we are getting this week. It's really satisfying to me.

Posted by MachoFantastico

I really need to play these games, they seem to do some awesome adventure games.

Vinny: "All these games... They look like they're in scum!"

That's 'the SCUMM Engine,' Vinny. It doesn't have some cool nickname everyone calls it by. What are you, on a first-name basis with it?

Posted by ttocs

Looking forward to playing this this weekend.

That R.I.P. for Screened made me sad.

Posted by MachoFantastico

Hungry for some adventure gaming so might have to get this. 

Posted by DJKommunist

@Morningstar: I was replaying that game yesterday. That game is so much fun if you're doing well. Jumping around doing ridiculous flips and shit on a giant floating steampunk god robot. It's certainly unique.

Did anyone else get stressed out with the monster at the door?

Posted by Codeacious

Oh hey, it's Rucks.

Posted by Feikken

No patrick?? Thanks, god! I love being able to finish watching a quicklook!

Jesus that monster door part was terrifying. This looks great.

Posted by Pyccko

Jesus Christ, that pounding on the door was giving me more anxiety than any other game I think I've ever played.

Phew. Holy moley.

The voice actor for the cop sounds really familiar.

loved gemini rue, this looks promising

did i make it?

Yes, yes you did.

Congratulations you are now part of a very exclusive club here on GB. I am proud to call you brother. :)

That monster part was nerve-wracking.

Logan Cunningham, aka the narrator from Bastion.
Posted by EquitasInvictus

Despite the lack of a memorable, moody and atmosphere opening that Gemini Rue had, they did a great job building the tension for the monster scenario and the whole shifting between characters at different times seems like a unique, interesting concept.

This might not be Gemini Rue 2, but I'm almost just as intrigued by this as I was Gemini Rue, so I think I'm going to the Wadjet Eye website now to pick this up!

Posted by Death_Burnout

With my low volume setup, there were times on the phone where the blonde character sounded a lot like Drew to me.

Ah I thought that was Logan, I wonder if they thought that at all...I was getting Bastion flashbacks.

This is by far the lamest thing you've ever complained about. Congratulations on your new low, loser.

I knew I recognized that voice! What up, dude from Bastion.

Posted by CaLe

I'm already completely stuck and only 20 minutes in. What the hell do I do to get the woman off the computer? I really hate these games sometimes.

Posted by smitty86

R.I.P. Screened.....

From the Wadjet Eye website (and, indeed, is mentioned in the quick look itself):

"A note about Steam. Due to technical reasons beyond our control, the game will be unavailable to purchase on Steam until July 25th. However, if you purchase the game directly from us, you will still be able to PLAY the game on Steam using the activation code. So if you want to play on Steam, you've still come to the right place!"

It's also available on GOG, though without the Steam activation code.

Posted by Olivaw

I wonder if this game has a cliched plot and an embarrassingly named main character like Gemini Rue! Let's find out!

Edited by eloj

They're actually made using AGS which until recently was closed-source and Windows only. It's reportedly been open-sourced now. I hope they get someone to port it to because limiting themselves to Windows only is crazy. CRAZY.

Went to their site hoping to take this with me on my next business trip, case in point, but of course I have a MBP so....

Posted by LiquidPrince

Awesome. I love when Vinny quick looks these Wadjet games.

Posted by dvorak

This game is innnnnnnnnnn-credible.

He loves the hate. Ignore him.

Anyway, this game looks fucking awesome. It looks like it has a real Snatcher vibe to it, and I love me some Snatcher.

Posted by Baal_Sagoth

Very cool QL! But damn is this indicative of how much I can hate adventure game mechanics. Nooo, nooooo don't give me the fucking mirror piece for the newspaper after I figured out I needed the bricks to get the car mirror. Let me fumble around in your shitty inventory some more before I can progress in the fashion I understood a good while ago. And that is the extend of the gameplay. There are some fun moments but I'd never be able to get over these peculiar game design decfisions personally.

Posted by MeatSim

That old adventure game charm and style is always nice to see.

Posted by HarlequinRiot

Why do adventure games seem to insist on having such slow animation for everything? I feel like so few of them "feel" quick and peppy.

Posted by MachoFantastico

So played this for a while now and so far loving it. Classic adventure game, which means you really have to think for yourself. A few hurdles already but easily solvable when you think about them.

Posted by Seedofpower

Haha "Ed's cell." That's my name!
