Hello, and welcome to another episode of Talk This! It’s Dangerous to Podcast Alone. This week, we’re talking about Blade Runner and Sea of Solitude. Are you human or are you monster? Slash robot, I guess.
As usual, you can listen to our podcast basically anywhere you want. Check it out on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, and on the Pandora app (or head over to our episodes page for even more options). Or just listen below!
Blade Runner is a 1997 point and click adventure , based on the film…well, Blade Runner. However, unlike most games based on movies, Blade Runner chooses not to retell the movie’s story and instead follows its own lead character Ray McCoy in a side-quel to the movie. Its 3D and real-time elements were way ahead of its time (appropriately, we suppose).
Sea of Solitude
Sea of Solitude is a 2019 light platforming adventure that tells the story of Kay, a young girl transformed into a monster and left on a boat in the middle of a storm. Kay must confront her memories and past failings in order to understand what has brought her here and how she might be able to leave and return to her human form. It’s basically a creative nonfiction memoir brought to video games.
