Developer: Joe Richardson

Genres: Art, Interactive Story

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. God saw all that he had made, and it was good. Then the Lord God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.'Ooops,' said god, seeing he had created a fool. But before he was able to remedy his error, man spoke;'No backsies!' he chirped, and scuttled off into the forest. Four Last Things is a point-and-click adventure game made from Renaissance-era paintings and public domain recordings of classical music. It is about sin, and the Four Last Things – Death, Judgement, Heaven and Hell – and strives to be intelligent and ridiculous in equal measures. It's kind of like if Monkey Island had been made in 16th century Flanders, by a time-travelling Monty Python fanboy...

Reviews

Small quibbles aside, overall Four Last Things is a delightful romp through Medieval Europe, an art history lesson, and a mind-bending puzzler all rolled into one.

Four Last Things takes a really unique approach to its visual and audio presentation, relying solely on old paintings for backdrops and carefully crafted character animations, and public domain classic music to add even more class to this already classy point-and-click adventure. Those fearing that this is a case of 'style over substance,' though, should worry not as one-man-band Joe Richardson has delivered a witty and comical script, complete with some very smart logic conundrums for players to crack on their road to redemption.
