The Wait Is Over: Anachronox Is On GoG.com


My wait, actually. The best bit of the PC Gamer Top 100 meetings was listening to Gamer's secret weapon Tony Ellis (if you've ever laughed at a caption or dark dark bit of humour, it was probably from Tony's sick mind), talking about Anachronox: we'd all stop flushing heads down the toilet and pause mid-Chinese burn as he told us about the insanity of Ion Storm's other game: all I remember now is that you could have a planet as a companion. A planet! I've been waiting for it to appear on GoG, and this morning it did. In addition to the planetary buddy, it's a combination of Japanese style RPG and western sensibilities, but thanks to a rushed production (lots of content was removed then Ion Storm closed a month after release), it's also rather buggy.

I'm still willing to spend $6 on it. I have that in my pocket right now. And a hole! I wonder if they'll take that as payment?
