This Week on Drunk and Ugly Let’s Play! (6/17/13)

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT:

The Logical Journey of the Zoombinis: Part 2 We continue our quest to bring the intrepid tribe of Zoombinis to their promised land. Can they make it past a bigoted cajun frog, and the most mind numbingly silly lilypad puzzle?

AND

The Logical Journey of the Zoombinis: Part 3 The promised land is just over the horizon! Just a few more puzzles to go.

GAMES PLAYED THIS WEEK:

The Logical Journey of the Zoombinis is the first game in the educational software series created by Chris Hancock and Scot Osterweil of TERC. 

Based on the Zoombinis, a race of small blue creatures depicted with varying facial features, initially living in prosperous peace on a small island called ‘Zoombini Isle’; but later enslaved by their neighbors, the Bloats, the game involves the Zoombinis’ search for a new home, featuring a series of “logical” puzzles which the player must solve.

Drunk and Ugly Let’s Play is updated every Monday and Friday!

Welcome to The Drunk and the Ugly!

Hello internet! We’d like to give a warm welcome to all of our new listeners. We’re very glad to have y’all.

Most of you are here looking for Mrs. Frieda’s Halfway Home, which begins here. This is our flagship campaign.  Run in Monsters and Other Childish Things, it focuses on a group of supernaturally gifted (or cursed) teenagers in a Halfway Home in the midwestern city of Troy. They get into and cause a lot of trouble. This story is in a season break; Seasons 1 and 2 are all available for you right now

Our currently posting games: Eclipse Phase, and Rogue Trader. Both are science fiction games, but radically different in settings. Eclipse Phase is a hard-scifi horror espionage game, while Rogue Trader is an exploration and discovery game in the Warhammer 40k setting.

Other things worth listening to: check out the sidebar for all of our campaigns and one-off games.

You can find us on twitter, @TheDrunkandUgly, on Facebook, and on our forums (available by the handy button on the right of the page).

We also do a twice-weekly Youtube Let’s Play channel!

All of the show’s episodes are available on iTunes, as well as on the site.

Join in the conversation in the comment threads of the episodes, as well as the active forum!

AsylumJam 2013 – The Chase


30950009_8c828d1e1d_b

Happy Halloween, all!  Sam and I played some maybe kinda scary games a little while back that were made as part of a 2-day GameJam called The AsylumJam, which focused on producing horror games themed by a realistic portrayal of mental illness.  While most of these are going up on Friday, this one was mostly text-based and the video didn’t come out well at all.  Sam’s dramatic reading of the text is spooky enough though.
