A Weighted Companion Cube of your very own: "in time for Christmas"

Happy Monkey Island Music Day!

 Monkey Island Music day has been celebrated every year since Joystiq began the tradition on October 13th of last year.  Immediately afterwards it was picked up by Ron Gilbert and Kotaku.  With such a long and illustrious history, I would be remiss in letting this noble day slide by without an appropriate playlist.

Clive Barker's Jericho demon demo downloadable a day early

Hot off the presses, and by that I mean the Something Awful forums, is the news that the Jericho demo is a day early on Filefront and Gamespot. Jericho appealed to me because of its demonic time-traveling squad mechanic, alth...

TGS 2007: The Diverting History of Mechanical Fellows

Interactive Friction: Lovecraftian abortions resurrected as text-adventure games
