Developer: The Odd Gentlemen

The Old-school adventure game mechanics brought back to life with lush modern graphics. With no tutorials or even a quest list new players must adapt quickly to the conventions of this old-school adventure.  

You play as Graham, a likeable if not a little over-excited character striving to become a knight. However, Graham isn’t the only one. With four other contenders to beat for the position, every choice you make matters. Plus, with no shortness of diversity within the game, you could go from slaughtering goblins in one moment to cracking jokes with merchants in the next.  

The whole adventure is framed as a tale told by the aging Graham voiced by veteran actor Christopher Lloyd. The little puns and jokes the elder Graham sneaks in to explain your mistakes such an accidental death or repeated failed attempts, is easily one of the best features of the game.

A perfect re-imagining of all the charm, humour, puzzles, exploration and sense of wonder that made the franchise so magical.
