Year of the Schafer: Counting Down to Gaming Bliss


If I were to tell you that your face will be melted off (officially) on Rocktober October 13th how would you spend your remaining months?  By playing Tim Schafer’s entire back catalogue of gaming classics of course!  Not hip to “The Year of the Schafer?”  Hop on over to Logan’s post so you too can be a cool kid.

The man himself is pumped that his newest gift to the world finally has a release date, eagerly exclaiming “Wooo! Having an official release date is awesome!  And how cool is it that EA threw down the dough to have the name of an entire month changed to Rocktober?” 

Cool?  I guess.  But apparently King Schafer has not heard that we media titans Pixels and Grids have dedicated the entire year to his greatness.  So start playing Secret of Monkey Island now or risk having your face only partially melted off.  That would just look silly.


Year of the Schafer: April – The Secret of Monkey Island


Yarr!  We be kickin’ off our Year of the Schafer celebration with more swash for your buckle.  Along with budding flowers and sunny days, April brings with it a light hearted tale of love, spiritual growth, and murderous piracy on the open sea (more specifically, islands on the open sea… Monkey Island, for example).  So find a copy and play along with us as we (re)experience The Schafer’s first point-and-click, picarrooning adventure.

Stay tuned for a special podcast at the end of the month where we’ll share our thoughts, favorite moments, and whatever else about this game.
