Ron Gilbert's Favo(u)rite Memories of Freddi Fish and Putt-Putt. (And also Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion)

Post by GeorgeQGreg on Sun Jun 03, 2012 1:02 pm

"Freddi Fish, Putt-Putt, and Pajama Sam are some of my favorite games I've made, and they don't get the recognition they deserve because a lot of people just look at them as games for kids. The idea of doing classic adventure games for kids came from watching four- and five-year-olds playing Monkey Island. They couldn't read, so they had no idea what the story was or even why they were doing the things they were doing. But they just loved running Guybrush around and clicking on objects and opening doors and seeing new things. That really was the brainstorm behind just building true adventure games for kids that had simpler puzzles and were fully voiced."

EDIT: They also linked to legoking's old walkthrough of the game there. More lovely views for him!

(To Pizzaking) Not really, but it's still suitable for them since they don't have anything more risque than an occasional double entendre.
That was a really interesting read. I'd give anything to meet with Ron Gilbert and have a conversation with him about his time at Humongous. I wonder if he has a public fan email address...?

It is suitable for them but it is recommended 11+ and you don't know why.

Oh, so it's rated PG-13?

More like probably in the PG range. I haven't seen anything worse than the stuff they had in the Shrek movies, so it wouldn't be rated more than that.

Tales of Monkey Island as well as the Special editions of MI1 and MI2 are rated E10+ by the ESRB for reference. COMI is rated E and EFMI is rated T. http://www.esrb.org/ratings/search.jsp?title=monkey+island&fromHome=fromHome
