Yesterday, we remarked
on the relative lack of coverage of the investigative aspect of Insecticide
. We see a lot of screens and video of action, but relatively few of the adventure-game portions
. And so we decided to hit the streets
and put our detective skills to the test, hunting for new screens of this portion of the game.
Then before we started, we got six new screens in our e-mail. We're such awesome investigators that all we have to do is want
to investigate. Look! The game has a story! And, yes, conversation trees! There is truly an adventure game hidden in the platformer. That is wonderful.
Not only that, but the game's personality is evident from even the tiny snippets of dialogue found in these screens.
