Bone Act Two: The Great Cow Race

Episodic format and cows seem to go along fine. You see, the second part of the Bone saga has just been released, and I believe you should be heading Telltale's way and having a look at the demo. I, on the other hand, being the lucky bastard I am (as long as it's not a bleeding Monday), have already finished playing this beautiful game. I'm not going to give you a full review, as I am already writing one for the Adventure Lantern site/magazine, but I can give you a few rather important and almost subtle hints:

-Bone act 2 is quite longer than Bone: Out from Boneville.
-There aren't any annoying mini-games.
-You may have to actually think, in order to solve a few of the puzzles.
-It's polished.
-The plot starts unfolding...
-Thorn doesn't look like a zombie instead of like a teenage girl (she does sound too childish mind you).
-The Great Cow Race is a great and very cheap (12.99$) game.

Now, feast upon these screenshots:

  1. Once again Gnome gets me interested into a game that I otherwise would have never heard of. Great job!

  2. Hear, hear. I believe Bone is really quite well known in Europe, but over here across the canal(The Channel) in insular-land (UK), most people have never heard of it. Looks interesting though - a nice unique visual style, and a few of the PC Mags featured the first game in passing.

  3. Oh, dear. Thanks for the comments guys...

    ross: D/l the demo, it's worth it...

    tom: We consider you European mate, so let's just all hug, and cuddle (in a straight way of course).

  4. Of course. followed by a hearty conversation about fit women, fast cars, football and beer. Naturally.

  5. Of course. Definitely. It's just, I don't are much for cars y' know...
