Hello, and welcome to another episode of Talk This! It’s Dangerous to Podcast Alone. This week, we’re talking about Professor Layton and Returnal! The fact that the professor would probably be delighted by the situation in Returnal so long as there were puzzles is probably the reason Luke ran away.
As always, you can listen to our podcast basically anywhere you want. Check it out on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, and Pandora (or head over to our episodes page for even more options). Or just listen below!
Professor Layton is a series of narrative puzzle adventure games from Level-5 where the titular Professor Layton and his apprentice Luke solve puzzles. Oh, and like, mysteries and stuff. But only if there are puzzles involved, to be clear. Professor Layton is in this for the puzzles.
Returnal is a 3D roguelike bullet-hell from Housemarque. Selene, an astronaut, finds herself stranded on an alien planet after her ship crashes. She pursues the mysterious White Shadow signal in the hopes of finding answers and finding a way to get back home again. However, she revives at the start every time she dies, leaving bodies upon bodies behind as she does so.
