Issue #35: Unlimited Run Games
Limited Run Games are flirting with less mainstream LEC titles; Mojo tries to figure out how to not go bankrupt over it.
The Editor Welcomes You
Happy new year, everyone! The year of RETURN TO MONKEY ISLAND is behind us. Can you believe it? Just like that. The frenzied excitement but a quaint memory.
Still, there’s plenty to look forward to this year. If LRG’s releases carry on at the rate they are then we’ll all be destitute by summer, and the new Indiana Jones game may actually turn out great given the development studio working on it. Their previous games even involved killing Nazis!
Personally, I’m still hanging on for that physical ReMI release. I’ve cleared the other half of my wardrobe for it, just in case it matches the size of Monkey Island Anthology. Or maybe I’ll just buy 10 if it doesn’t.
What are you looking forward to in 2023? Apparently you can leave a comment somewhere below, so let us know!
Limited Run’s Unlimited Selection
It doesn’t stop, does it? While Loom has its fans, Limited Run really is doubling down on a niche of a niche market this time around.
$75 isn’t bad, though if I were a glass-half-empty kind of guy, I’d say that’s about $1 per minute of gameplay. Still, lots of fun extras, and with a bit of luck, the EGA version will be bundled. Breaking! Mojo can exclusively confirm the EGA version will be bundled.
And The Devil’s Playhouse, Too!
Not to be left behind, Skunkape has officially announced The Devil’s Playhouse remaster. Nothing surprising there, and we can, with some certainty, presume an LRG version will be waiting in the wings, too.
Fan Art Isn’t Dead
… it’s just become more artsy, as Tales of Mêlée Island shows.
Wany a proverbial bag of information about the project? Kroms sat down with Julian Stamboulieh and talked about the movie.
The Spoiler Train Warms Up
Many things are brewing at Mojo—well, lightly simmering—and as we are looking at milking Return to Monkey Island’s afterglow for what it’s worth, we’ve started prepping some content. Like this spoilerific video that shows every interaction with the entirely useless horse armor.
And yes, we know you can throw it in the fire, too. That doesn’t count. Now be quiet. >:
