If you're curious, that's because I went to bed at 6 AM.
This, because I happened to have discovered a series of games (via the new one, Medieval Shorts) called Medieval Cop. Didn't quite finish them all (I got through Episode 4, Part 1, so I've got E4 P2 and E4 P3 to play at some point, still), but I have to say:
The game has that Ace Attorney vibe to it, in the same manner that Socrates Jones does, with all of what that entails: lots of unique humor, finding clues, cross-examination, and hilarious battles which are one point pokemon and two parts Ace Attorney.
This is a series of games that knows what they are doing, and do it really, really well. Laughing the whole time, and yet, engaged in the interesting plots which drag me in and have me wanting more. It's a series of games that has it all: good mechanics, good humor, interesting interactions, good characters, good plot, just a solid combination of ideas in a thoroughly-enjoyable experience.
And the best part is, a fifth episode is coming out soon. The first episode came out in January of this year. These games, despite having a decent length (admittedly, they are a bit short, but oh well), are being produced at an ungodly fast pace, and yet, the quality hasn't suffered one bit. In fact, each game is arguably better than the last! They all introduce unique things, which have been honed and refined as the games progress, but I'm more referring to the timing and nature of the jokes invoked: instead of getting bland and/or repetitive, they have been getting increasingly interesting and diverse, which is a REAL accomplishment given the characters are also increasingly established, nailed down, and therefore not susceptible to change at the whims of the maker.
CONSISTENTLY giving character interactions that are hilarious, yet totally in-character? That is the mark of a true god-tiered writer.
Game does suffer from typos and grammatical errors here and there, but oh well. Nothing which is too terribly painful.
Would highly recommend.
