You’re Gonna Have to Jump: The retro games of Homestar Runner

Trogdor is a dragon borne of the Internet, like something out of Shadowrun, and January 13th saw him turn 15 years old. Trogdor, for the uninitiated, is a 12-year-old’s awesome notebook doodle, a dragon shaped like the letter S with an inexplicably beefy human arm coming out of his back. He's a recurring character from the webseries Homestar Runner, cartoons which followed the childish obsessions…

Have You Played… Strong Bad’s Cool Game For Attractive People?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. Homestar Runner is alive again! Not nearly as alive as it once was, but there have been Halloween cartoons the last two years, and hints that the Brothers Chap are learning HTML5 to replace the aged Flash site. Which is all a very…

Strong Bad’s Cool Game For Low Prices

I'm not sure for how much longer this will last, so get in quick. Telltale's best series, Strong Bad's Cool Game For Attractive People, is currently available in full (all five episodes) for £4 on Steam. That's... all five for less than the price of one episode on release. It's 82% off the full price. Each game takes a couple of hours, so by my…

Happy Trogday! Free Strong Bad Episode

Well apparently it's Trogday. If you're a fan of Homestar Runner, you're probably as sad about the lack of new content on the site as me. Just because one of the Bros. Chaps had a baby doesn't mean they can miss a Decemberween cartoon, the lazy buggers. If you're not a fan, you've no idea what this is about and you're thinking of clicking away.…

Behind The Bad (People At Telltale)

To conclude our Pulitzer Prize nominated coverage* of the war that has broken out between Telltale and made up company Videlectrix (made up of moustachioed geniuses, that is), below is our interview with the CEO of Telltale, Dan Connors, in which we grill him about the controversy in a way that makes other games journalists look like the frightened, corporate-bought cowards they truly are. But…

Strong Bad Episode 5 Demo, Controversy

The final episode of the good fun Strong Bad's Cool Game For Attractive People series is out now, with a demo available. It's the second best of the five (the fabulous Episode 3 beating it), with some top-notch nonsense, and Mike Stemmle Chuck Jordan on puzzle duty, with Mike Stemmle at his side. And of course features the mighty Trogdor, as well as many other…

Telltale And Videlectrix Come To Blows

The Strong Bad episodic adventures come to an end later this month with the final chapter, 8-Bit Is Enough. In the meantime, there's something of a spat occurring between developer/publisher Telltale and their development partner, Videlectrix. The details are below, along with statements from both companies, and a trailer for the next episode.

New Strong Bad Demo Out

Monthly releases come around so quickly. There's another demo for the freshly available second episode of Strong Bad's Cool Game For Attractive People. Definitely worth checking out. Episode 1, out last month, is reviewed in the next PC Gamer, so I can't possibly say anything about it. (It's great! People at PC Gamer can't read things in parentheses. They all suck!) This second episode (isn't…

Strong Bad STRONG!

Strong Bad's Cool Game For Attractive People: Episode One - Homestar Ruiner is out, and blimey, it's good. It's not been much of a secret that I've not been a big fan of Telltale's Sam & Max games. So I'm delighted to report that I enjoyed Strong Bad's game. I'll say no more, as reviews are due to appear in printed form. Meanwhile, there's a…
