Today, I’m giving my first game review a shot. I’ve offered you to write about → “Thimbleweed Park”, a new game from the designers of “Monkey Island” and “Maniac Mansion”, Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick. And if you didn’t know it yet, I’m a huge sucker for old point-and-click adventures and/or those in pixel design because thanks to my super cool dad and one of his good friends, I grew up with “Monkey Island” – and this makes for an amazing childhood. ;) But to be honest, I’ve never played “Maniac Mansion” but I’m willing to make this up, as well as finally play some other games like “Day of the Tentacle”, “Loom” or “Grim Fandango” (always somehow mentioned in the “Monkey Island” games, but somehow they never caught me that much). By the way: I’ve also really loved “Simon the Sorcerer” (I and II only!), so if you don’t know it yet, you better change that just as I’m going to with all the other classics! ;)

I wish I had known earlier about “Thimbleweed Park” when it was a kickstarter project – I would totally have spent a lot of money on that, at least to have a physical copy of the game and maybe even to be a part of the phone book. ;) I just heard about the game about a month before it was launched on March 30, so it was too late to be one of the backers but I was happy to support it not only by buying the game the second it was finally available on Steam but also by purchasing the soundtrack of the game (which is absolutely awesome and fits the game perfectly!).

I don’t want to write too much in order to make it an entertaining review and of course, I won’t spoil you in any way, so if you feel like reading what I have to say about this marvellous game: go on… ;)

Game-“Review” ♥ Sims 3 Katy Perry – Süße Welt


Vor ein paar Tagen wurde ich mit diesem – im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes – zuckersüßen Päckchen (perfekt für Unterzucker! ^^) überrascht. Mir wurde das neue Erweiterungspack “Katy Perry – Süße Welt” von Sims 3 zugeschickt, das ich nur allzu gern getestet habe! Deshalb gibt’s heute eine kleine Game-“Review”, die aber mit Sicherheit nicht so professionell ausfällt wie bei Game-Blogs, denn schließlich ist das hier ja keiner, aber thematisch passt es ja schon irgendwie. :)


Ich kann euch keine technischen Details bieten, dafür aber ganz klassisch eine mädchenhafte oberflächliche Meinung zu dem Spiel. Und natürlich viele Screenshots. :)

Und wegen denen geht’s nach dem Klick weiter, sonst werdet ihr erschlagen von lauter bunten Zuckersachen. ;)
