Time Gentlemen, Please is the sequel to the previously featured Ben There, Dan That. The crude graphics, great writing and ridiculous plot bring out the the best of the old-school Lucasarts adventure games. I simply lost count of the many laugh out loud moments in Ben There, Dan That. Time Gentlemen, Please looks set to top that bar.
The sequel is better done so far in almost every way. The graphics are clearer and don't leave you hunting for pixels, the writing is snappier, the music is great and the plot is just as ridiculous as ever. Don't worry about understanding the story if you've never played the first game as there's a great “previously on ...” animation just before you start the game that explains all you need to know.
This game is very friendly to new users. In fact, this game has the best running tutorial system I've seen for an adventure game. You don't have to be familiar with any of the adventure game tropes here, the interface is explained very well by some floaty in-world text and the solutions to the puzzles are frequently hinted at with a witty remark or two by the main characters. If you've been wanting an excuse to dive into an adventure game, this would be a good one.
Besides the improved visuals, music and gameplay the other major difference is that Time Gentlemen, Please now costs $5 whereas the previous game was free. There's a very good demo available however - and of course the first game is still free if you want to see an example of their work. If you're still not convinced by all that, you're probably a robot.
Why You Should Check This Out: The old-school Lucasarts flavor is brought out in this adventure game, with some clever jokes and great puzzles. It's hilarious, zany fun. The sequel to one of the best recent comedy adventure games, and it still manages to improve on it.
