And another one
Adventuring has got to be a pretty tough gig. Not only are you expected to run around and save people, but you usually have to do so without any kind of payment. You just have to save the world because you’re destined to, or because you’re the hero of time, or because you’re really hench. It’s a tiring existence, and it’s very rarely a funny one, even if it might be entertaining in other ways.
The thing about Reventure isn’t that the story is some revelatory chance to see the face of God in a new hero. Nor is it a spectacular coming of age plot where you become the person you were always meant to be, overcoming every obstacle in your way and triumphing at the end of the day. Instead, and this is a little spoilery, it’s just intensely funny. I don’t just mean “breathe through your nostrils a little bit” funny, I mean “I actually loled out loud” funny.
In essence, this humour is down to the 100 endings available in the game, and how they range from the absurd to the obscene. I’m not going to spoil any of them, but Reventure plays a little more like an immersive sim in parts thanks to these endings. Perhaps the best reason to try out Reventure, is the fact that it only costs £4.99 normally. What’s even better than that though, is the fact that it’s currently half price, making it £2.49. You’d be hard-pressed to find better value anywhere.
