The launch trailer for “point-and-geek” adventure Randal’s Monday has just hit – on a Wednesday.
Randal’s Monday is a point-and-clicker that gives you control of the sociopathic kleptomaniac arsehole Randal, who finds himself cursed to relive the same day over and over again after pawning his best friend’s engagement ring. Each time he wakes up, the “Monday” is slightly different based on whatever actions he’s previously taken, though, and this means that things get very weird, very quickly. If he can find creative uses for everyday objects, survive a cast of thoroughly weird characters, avoid the swarm of koalas invading the streets, stop his best friend from committing suicide in increasingly ridiculous ways, and get the ring back… then maybe he’ll make it to Tuesday. Maybe.
I finished the game earlier this afternoon, so our full review should be online in a few hours. For now, you can have a look at the trailer below and experience some of the rather good voice acting and dialogue for yourself.
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
