GameReport article

Any Spanish speakers out there? I stumbled across a new article about LBA (GameReport #13), but I can't understand it.
Does it say anything interesting? (Even if it doesn't, at least the picture is quite intriguing )

Damn that articles has words too complicated for my basic spanish... I'll put more effort into it later.

That artwork is quite nice though! How recent is this?

Yeah, but his pinkies look more like thumbs to me and vice-versa.

Native spanish speaker here!

From the only page that I can read, it looks like a beautiful read. It is very metaphorical, it compares Twinsen to Homer's Ulysses!

But it doesnt say anything new. It mentions 2dark, the new survival horror from Raynal and that's it. No new info but certainly a nice and very positive view of Frederick Raynal and his gaming legacy.

It's cool that it mentions that "it is not by accident that there is still an alive community of fans until today waiting for a sequel of the saga" --> that's us.
Also, calls Fred's haircut as "rockabilly", haha.


A cool find is that the illustrator that made that interesting Twinsen art is called Karen Novelo and she's got some pretty nifty work here https://dribbble.com/shots/2780299-Twinsen .

sgk: Think of it this way: it's like a message in a bottle. In our world, we put a message inside a bottle to protect it while it travels through the oceans to reach some other island. In other worlds, they put a message inside an asteroid to protect it while it travels through space to reach some other planet. In this case it is a gift, a guitar, rather than just a message.

Nice finding Kasia.

Indeed it doesn't say anything new, but it's amazing to see articles about the game and Fred these days. Hope 2dark can boost Fred popularity and more good news for MBN.
