In this episode of the Waffling Taylors podcast, I sat down to talk with White Mage and Red Mage about The Sexy Brutale. As we’ll find out, the title is decieving (in that it’s not about sex at all).
Both White Mage and Red Mage love this game and could talk about it for hours. It has simple gameplay (it’s a fantastic puzle game), a wonderful art style, and some brilliant writing. If you’re at all into puzzle games, then I would definitely recommend it.
As I say in the episode intro, there are a few phrases in this episode which might be problematic for younger listeners. Here they are:
- The Sexy Brutale (obviously)
- High as balls
Aside from the name, the phrase “High as balls” is only mentioned once, but if this might cause issues for listeners, then I’d recommend skipping this episode.
- Leisure Suit Larry
- Majora’s Mask
- Life is Strange
- Day of the Tentacle
- Final Fantasy
- Final Fantasy XII
- The Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind
- Persona (series)
- Shin Megami Tensei (series)
seriously Atlus, can we have a series art books for the Persona and Shin Megami series?
Ace Attorney (series)
- Night Trap
I accidentally called this one Night Watch, which is a fantastic Discworld novel and not a video game at all
