Daedalic has announced Randal’s Monday, a retro-style point-and-click adventure.
Randal’s Monday features a main character destined to repeat the same Monday over and over again…
Yes, in case you’re wondering, that is the same plot as Groundhog Day, only it seems that Randal is an even bigger douche than Bill Murray’s character, since the catalyst for starting the “cursed” Monday loop is triggered when he pawns off an engagement ring belonging to one of his friends. Sounds like a charmer…
The game claims to contain “several nods to geek culture”, including TV, video games and pop culture, which apparently involves the confusing and deeply irreverent sight of a Wookie in a Star Trek uniform in one of the screenshots. And - possibly - Wolverine?
You can check out the trailer for the title below.
Looks like repeating the same Monday might get a little chaotic; the trailer features a fair amount of guns, death and alcoholism.
The title is due out Autumn 2013 on PC.
