British Advisor

posted by swissrebel on - last edited - Viewed by 284 users

After sitting through the credits for episode 2, I noticed you had a "British advisor" :D

Clearly a wise move, as Bosco's british accent is uncanny. Seriously, as a Brit myself - I was completely convinced!

Ep2 was pretty good. Dunno why, but I didn't think it was funny as ep1. By the looks of it, i'm the only one who thought this :)

Please say that this is gonna be the shortest episode though, cos I only took a couple of hours to get through it, and i'm not that good with adventure games on the whole :/

    That's one of my favorite lines in the game. :D

    Also, I like it when Max is like "What language is he speaking?" and Sam says "I think it's... English."

  • There was also Mr. Featherly, remember?

    But I love how Bosco managed to memorize all those odd British exclaimations like toodle-pip and tickety-boo. He also shouted a bunch of them at the rats after they stole the shaving cream, but he forgot to do the accent.

    Where did the dig up all those phrases, anyway? Somebody had a lot of P.G. Wodehouse's books lying around?

    You can thank our honest-to-goodness British Advisor. He is an actual British person :)

  • There are days when Dave or Brendan will wander around the office (or make a seemingly innocuous thread on the forums) asking for some sort of odd thing. In this case it was cheesy stereotypical things that someone like Bosco would say if he thought he was doing a good job of disguising himself as a British person. It seemed like a good move would be to ask someone who was actually British, so that happened as well, then he ended up in the credits. True story.

  • I thought it was a nice satire of how terribly stereotypically the Americans portray British people in their TV shows and movies :)

  • Haha, I thought the things that Bosco threw out of his mouth were funny but I dunno how a couple of the kids playing this game would take it? It makes me think what kind of target TTG are aiming for? Is it a kids game? a mature game? inbetween? Slightly off topic but yer :P

    Mummery....

    *Harumphs*

    Kids laugh at people wearing funny hats and fake mustaches and saying things like "honey nut cheerio". Even if they don't get it.

    Heyyyyyyy.... funny hats and fake moustaches aren't only for the young 'uns, I for one can spend hours laughing at moustachioed people in small bowlers :D ................Then again, I also find endless entertainment in shiny things........
