Mega Bad Code Announced by Wax Lyrical Games

Screens and More Info – February 3, 2014

Mega Bad Code takes place in a city-state called The Blue Banana, known as BlueBan Megalopolis. Mind-uploading technology has been developed, enabling the elite to escape both their bodies and the crime-ridden streets by transporting themselves to a computer-generated reality.

This leaves BlueBan open for the dregs of society to build fraternities of organized crime in the Anarchy Zone. And if that’s not enough, a serial killer has started murdering people at random, and law enforcement is confused and exhausted.

Hmmm…Maybe it’s time for Lucas McCreebie to get involved…

Yes, we did mention kookiness and comedy. Alan Thorn, designer and creator of Wax Lyrical Games, explains: “Mega Bad Code blends comic-style surrealism with a dark and unnerving seriousness. It’s a thought-provoking and kooky journey into the near future where players must solve a mystery full of dangerous twists and turns. There’s something here to intrigue most gamers: varied locations, challenging puzzles, bizarre characters, sinister goings-on and touches of weirdness throughout.”

Mega Bad Code will be released for Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android and Windows Phone in late 2014.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
