Anachronox Article at Stratos Group

Great games you may have missed: Anachronox is the title of an article at The Stratos Group. They look at this nice RPG that didn't sell too well back then:
What sets Anachronox apart from most "save the universe" stories is its collection of interesting, unique and deeply sympathetic characters and a fantastic sense of humor. It never takes itself seriously and somehow still manages to be more emotionally fulfilling than most purported dramas from Hollywood, thanks to the combination of excellent writing, exceptional voice acting and expressive characters. There's never any question that the story is a comedy though. In fact, I'd easily rank Anachronox as being alongside No One Lives Forever and the classic Monkey Island games as one of the funniest I've ever played.

If you don't believe me, believe the folks who attended the First Annual Machinima Film Festival. Machinima, for those not in the know, is the art of creating films using real-time rendering engines; commonly game engines. Jake Hughes, the animation director of Anachronox, edited the game's cinematic sequences and some bits of gameplay into a feature length film and aired it at the first ever machinima film festival, where it won Best Picture and Best Writing.
