Old gamers like me will shed a tear of joy when they learn that the French developpers of Golgoth Studio are currently working on a remake of Toki, one of the great classics of the late eighties and early nineties. For those of you who weren't born at the time of the Golden Age of video gaming, Toki deals with the adventure of a poor young man who has been turned into a monkey by a mean sorcerer by the name of Vookimedlo. The evil sorcerer also kidnapped the hero's girlfriend and the game is about this quest towards humanity and love - the kind of pitch you don't see that often nowadays. There seems to have been quite a huge amount of work done in redesigning the game's looks and the first images are rather exciting. The game has just been announced on XBLA and PC for the moment.
I explained to her that sitting on my front porch on a backstreet that no one uses is only going to get my attention. (24 minutes ago)
Speaking of mental illness: woke up this morning to some crazy woman "protesting" on my front porch. I'm still not sure what she was protesting. Something about land management. (24 minutes ago)
