Epic Saga

Pyschonauts developers, Double Fine, have released a new range of free, web-based minigames to play. And by "range", I of course mean, "one of them". But as the site says under its grand banner, "When there's only one candidate, there's only one choice!"

The game is Epic Saga, a beat-em-up that quite literally matches the glory of Rise of the Robots. Looking an awful lot like the wonderful Videlectrix old-skool game spoofs by the Homestar Runner people, it's hardcore retro something something. (Is this the "delirious rambling" GSW were on about?)

Right and kick, then.

It's interesting to see that often missed gaming technique of creating games that are hard to not win. Also, it's really very funny, with comments such as, "Oh my the gods, what have I done?" after a win. Sadly it's the same end sequence whichever character you play, but if you've had enough of Virtua Kombat XVIII constantly beating you because you haven't practised at it since you were seven months old, this is all quite a relief. (Thanks to Richard Cobbett for the link).
