The Editor Welcomes You
The heat of summer has finally arrived — a season we British never handle gracefully. Months of moaning about the cold are replaced with months of moaning about the heat, and lives are nearly lost in the widespread scrambles to get hold of cooling fans before the prices get hiked.
What does all this have to do with adventure games, you ask? Well, let’s just say that there have been days when I’ve played Monkey Island wearing more clothes than this.
Week in Review
Here's a big one: Noah Falstein, LucasArts legend, has played Return to Monkey Island (and also contributed some input) and is very chatty about it. Speculations abound if the game will be the basis of Ph.D thesis, and we can only assume it'll be required playthroughs in primary school.
Elsewhere, Jason put together the most Mojo of Mojo articles with "The Secret Character Assassination of Smilin’ Stan."
And in yet another interview conducted elsewhere, Tami Borowick sat down and talked about her career.
Oh, and Mojo is now at the forefront of meme culture!
