If Elvis were still alive (rather than having become Bruce Campbell) then perhaps, now a more thoughtful man, he’d agree that it can be agreeable to converse rather than to copulate. Not all talk is teasing, Presley, you old hound dog. It’s entirely possible that Elvis is actually a character in Rehearsals and Returns, a game in which you can finally find out what happens if you talk to the monsters, except the monsters are famous people, living and dead. It’s currently Kickstarting and is from one of the chaps behind splendid surrealist political play-poem, The Cat and the Coup. After watching the video, which I’ve included below, I’m still not entirely sure how it’ll play, beyond some jumping, and bickering with the likes of Mao Tse Tung and Richard Pryor.
The money will go toward paying the artist and musician working on the game, which is nice. I still tend to think that artists and musicians are basically forced to scavenge for food.
