I’ve decided on my favourite thing. It’s when American fantasy refers to “the Midlands”. In Travelogue, you can “change the fate of the Midlands”. Oh, if only that were possible. For instance, I would begin changing the fate of the Midlands by dropping bombs on Stoke On Trent until it was entirely obliterated, and then salt the earth on which it stood such that it could never grow again. Then I’d make it the law that if you call anyone “duck” you get your head chopped off. These options aren’t available in Travelogue, a text-led, map-based RPG from Urban Hermit Games.
It certainly looks primitive, but there’s obviously an awful lot going on in here. And giggling every time it refers to “the Midlands” would keep me going for a while. Also, I’d do my best to profit from pottery.
The game’s out now, and costs $10/£6.49.
