Pilfer from poets, bargain with bishops and serenade the local simpleton on your hapless quest for absolution. Four Last Things is a point-and-click adventure game made from Renaissance-era paintings.
It's kind of like if Monkey Island had been made in 16th century Flanders, by a time-travelling Monty Python fanboy…
***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.***
-Pointing and Clicking
“Four Last Things is an impressive – and impressively funny – adventure that pulls off its Monty Python-esque humor with gusto.”
