The Procession To Calvary review

"Your mileage may vary" is a term writers use a lot because it does a lot of heavy lifting. It can helpfully mean either "I liked it but I can see why others would not", or exactly the inverse of that. I can't help but feel, though, that it was a phrase invented for weirdo Renaissance painting point-and-click adventure The Procession To Calvary, because I…

Spank a Bishop in new Renaissance adventure The Procession To Calvary

The Procession To Calvary is now out, allowing you to muck you way through Renaissance artwork with the irreverence that I learned to appreciate as a Monty Python-loving teen. It's a point and click 'em up "spiritual sequel" to Four Last Things which was also a silly classic paintings romp.

Art history-mangling adventure The Procession To Calvary turns to crowdfunding

It's made from snippets of olde…

Cor, new adventure Four Last Things [official site] does have some gorgeous artwork - but it would, as it's borrowing from some of the finest Renaissance painters. Joe Richardson has built the game out of paintings, given life with cutout animation. "It's kind of like if Monkey Island had been made in 16th century Flanders, by a time-travelling Monty Python fanboy," he says. Fill your…

The Preposterous Awesomeness Of Everything Is The Strangest Thing I’ve Seen In A Good Long While

When a game's website leads with the words, "Oh god I hope I finish it before I die and/or go mad," that's a hint. The Preposterous Awesomeness Of Everything [official site] is a point-and-click adventure that returns to the early-90s LucasArts' verb interface, but comparisons to anything else end there. Describing itself as a game about "progress, politics and propulsive nozzles" what it doesn't immediately…
