Strong Badia the Free Released!

Today is the day! The second episode of Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People has been released. Help Strong Bad reject the "fat-thority" of the King of Town and unite rebel factions in Strong Badia the Free.

Get it for Wiiware from the Wii Shop on your Nintendo Wii console or head to the website of Telltale Games to get the PC version.

As with Homestar Ruiner, the game contains a trailer for the next episode. The name of the next episode is Baddest of the Bands, and according to the IGN preview mentioned below of Strong Badia the Free, it deals with metal music. Hopefully Strong Mad will feature strongly in this episode, as he's a metal head. I love that big lug.

Flight of the Amazon Queen Updated

I'm going to use the LucasArts SCUMM defense again to make this post relevant. :) And for those who missed it that time, the defense is that this game now runs on a program originally designed to run LucasArts adventure games, so it somehow fits the criteria of Telltale (and the games previously made by Telltale employees) that this blog covers. :)

The freeware release Flight of the Amazon Queen, my second favorite free game currently supported for the 2D adventure game program ScummVM, has been updated to 1.1.

This version re-compresses the sound with the latest ScummVM tools so that any clicks at the beginning of speech should be fixed, as well as any problems with speech playing too slow. Although the slow speech problem has a work around in ScummVM 0.12.0, so you might not even notice that problem.

You can download the game for free from the ScummVM download page, and while you're at it pick up the latest version of ScummVM to play the game too. :)
