I heard on the Videlectrix website that you Telltale people took these guys out to lunch ...

  • On the subject of Videlectrix, I'd kill for a remake of "Where's An Egg". Greatest game in history.

    That game was made by Videlectrix's partners in the Soviet Union. Videlectrix only released it in the west when they stumbled upon a manual page which enabled them to figure out how the heck you play it. Most likely, no trace of the original developers has been found since the Berlin Wall fell.

    You mean there's actually a manual page that tells you how to play it? I mean, it's fun and all, but I just clicked places randomly until I found the egg....

    I really have no idea if there's any logic to that game....

    Play it a few times and you start to spot patterns.

    That may be, but riddle me this: Have you ever seen Videlectrix and Sovietlectrix in the same room? And is it not true that in Soviet Russia, game develops YOU?? And most importantly, was this post just an excuse to make a Russian Reversal???

    The page used to be linked on the Videlectrix website, but not any more. However, you can still view it here - it's the fictional auction site where they bought the page from a Russian seller.

  • ^ Seconded. It's a funny joke at first, but it's really a solid game. Reminiscent of Hunt The Wumpus, too.

    Hallrunner is another really good one.

  • I love how with Hallrunner you can just change the .xml file to make the game however you want.

  • @names_are_useless said: Did you really tell them the Wiimote would work on "all the latest systems"?

    Those things ONLY work on the Wii! Silly Telltale :p



    Actually you are completely wrong, I develop video games and with a few DLLs the Wii Remote can be used on a computer(not the pointing part obviously but the buttons).
