So, I’ve started a new solo venture to run alongside our other co-op-ed Let’s Plays. Instead of horror, I’m going to be playing and commentating on some of the many, many adventure-style and point-and-click games I own and love. I’m going to start off with the first of the most recent Sam & Max games, Save the World (a series of episodic short games).
Producing these videos was interesting, while a widescreen patch does exist, some elements of this first new season of Sam & Max don’t quite work, as they were designed for a 4:3 aspect ratio, so that’s what I’ll be playing it in. To cover the screen estate that most people will have left over, (as most people have 16:9 displays these days) I’ve applied some interesting affects in post. Later seasons have more widescreen support.
This week I’ve completed episode one – Culture Shock. Enjoy.
And look out for the next batch of episodes, where I play through Situation Comedy, soon.
