Issue #44: Undead, Part II
Mojo once again cheats death, lives to tell the tale.
First: We are aware last week’s email came through malformatted. Whoops! The web and app versions were fixed promptly, if nothing else. Rumors that a Brazilian hacker was behind the maleficence go unconfirmed.
Back to our regular programming: The forums are back! You can once again brag about your Mojole results (the game is 400 days old and running 🤯), be highfalutin in the Mojo book club, or witness what can only be described as an ambitious LEGO project.
Meanwhile, in the news section, Jennifer makes her triumphant return posting about the Maniac Mansion SNES mouse hack/patch. Is it just me, or does Ronzo’s first LucasFilm game rank as our already bizarre universe’s weirdest ecosystem (for the lack of a better word)?
Daniel Albu continues his LEC-retrospective march with a four-hour-long Bill Tiller interview.
And for those with children or who is a child at heart: the Putt-Putt Saves the Zoo soundtrack has been remastered. Find it on Bandcamp.
That’s it for this week—hopefully, the newsletter won’t be gobbled up this time!
