All I know is there had BETTER be a line in Little Orbit’s upcoming Adventure Time: Finn and Jake Investigations where someone says to Jake (and that someone should be Finn) “Forget it Jake, it’s Chinatown…”.
Okay, I’ll still play the game if the line isn’t in there, but I don’t see how the writers could pass up such and easy opportunity for such an obvious reference. Hey, it’s better (and easier to explain to kids) than “She’s my mother! (SLAP!) My sister (SLAP!)”, that’s for sure.
Unlike the last couple of RPG-like Adventure Time games, Finn and Jake Adventures is a nice throwback to classic PC graphic adventures but with more action-oriented combat when required. In the game, The try-namic duo hoof it around the Land of Ooo solving a few mysteries using a combination of wits (yours included) and fists (because some baddies won’t cough up a clue without a healthy beat down, of course). As you can see, the game looks pretty cool so far, going for a full-on 3D polygon style and not the hand-drawn 2D sprite look of previous games in the series. Veteran developer Vicious Cycle is on the case and it’s certainly good to see them getting the look right on the money.
Adventure Time: Finn and Jake Investigations is headed to PC (via Steam), PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii U and Nintendo 3DS sometime in October (according to the game’s website). An eye will be kept peeled and looking for a concrete launch date. Whose eye? Well, that’s for me to know and you to find out. Um, sleep with one of your eyes open in case I need a spare, m’kay?
