Okay this is just a concept at the moment, I wonder if anyone has come up with it before?
I think the BBC TV Comedy Blackadder would make a great game. It's full of witty 1-liner humour, whilst having a dark twist to it.
The gameplay could be a mixture of 2 Lucas Arts classics:
Sam & Max: It would have 2 characters walking around together, Blackadder, who the player controls, and Baldrick, who would act like Max, being used (and abused) when needed. They make a great double-act on the show and Blackadder's cruelty to Baldrick would be great in a cartoony style game.
Day of the Tentacle: There are 4 series' of Blackadder on TV. A Medievil one, an Elizabethan one, a 19th century one, and a World War 1 one. In each he has both a different setting and a different role, while maintaining the same witty but dark character. If the player could swap which Blackadder they play at will, like in DoTT, it would be a great addition to the game. Of course this would involve quite a complex story design. Obviously, he can't use toilets to transfer items, but I'm sure some of the creative people here could come up with a better way.
Blackadder is always getting into trouble, and always finds some bizarre way of getting out of it, which I think would transfer wonderfully to the adventure game genre.
What do you all think about the idea?
