Comic/Games confluence: Bone is out
Bone the computer game is now officially online and available for Windows 2000 and XP. You can download the first part for free here. If you want the rest of the game it will cost you only $19.99, which is a pretty good deal.
I find this release exciting/interesting on a couple of levels. Firstly, the source material that Telltale Games is working with is pretty exceptional and, I think, more easy to translate into a video game format than other non-superhero comics. Secondly, unless I'm greatly mistaken, this is being billed as an adventure game, and, as any gamer worth their salt will tell you, adventure games are few and far between these days.
This is one of the few times in my life where I severely regret being a Mac user. If anyone does decide to try it out, please do email me and let me know how it is, kay?
In related news, Joystiq reports that Telltale will also be producing the formerly cancelled Sam and Max game. This is the third time the sequel to the critically acclaimed "Sam and Max Hit the Road" has been promised, but hopefully three will be the charm here.
