Hello, and welcome to another episode of Talk This! It’s Dangerous to Podcast Alone. This week, we’re talking about The Secret of Monkey Island and Iconoclasts, not that Madelyn would know. Madelyn did not do so hot on the whole “remembering game names” part of the job this week.
The Secret of Monkey Island
The Secret of Monkey Island is a classic 1990 adventure game from the once reigning kings of the adventure genre, Lucasarts. Guybrush Threepwood wants to be a pirate, but first he needs to save the mayor, take down a ghost pirate LeChuck, and solve some ridiculous puzzles. Spar enemies with insults, find ways through the island, and have a rollicking pirate adventure.
Iconoclasts is a 2018 puzzle platformer in the Metroidvania tradition, developed over the course of many, many years by Joakim “Konjak” Sandberg. Play as Robin, your silent protagonist, and fight back against the agents of the One Concern with nothing but your trusty wrench. Oh yeah, and, it’s possible you’ll have to stop the end of the world too. You know. As you do.
