Having finished #ReturnToMonkeyIsland, I would like to share a thought. Part 1. #monkeyisland #rtmi #guybrush #gamedev #gamedevs
This game and the team have my admiration. It is hard enough to design and execute an excellent game, create a new engine, experiment with the art, deliver on the music.
It is even harder to deliver a game with meaning. It takes bravery to even attempt such a thing. There is almost no chance of pulling it off. So much can go wrong. The meaning might be misconstrued, leading to anger and protest.

Just for funsies, and because I don't do reviews any more, a few cool adventure design things I noted down while playing #ReturnToMonkeyIsland. No spoilers, promise. Just noting some things that I especially dug.
Puzzles are so well signposted, and in multiple ways. You've got the To-Do list as a reminder, but also, character dialogue trees typically leave in a reference to the puzzle they're part of, making it easy to strip the branches and dismiss red herrings or pointless components.
Puzzles are constantly building on each other, to the point that points of repetition feel both earned and like a natural progression - the one major exception being a genuinely wonderful meta-joke I won't name, but which I thought was a fantastic bit of adventure legerdemain.
