Kaptain Brawe: A Brawe New World was an entertaining and original adventure game that hearkened back to some of the classic games of the late 80s/early 90s. In true adventure game style, you come across a bunch of obstacles and objects, and have to figure out how to combine the objects in order to make it past the obstacles. The premise is that Kaptain Brawe is a somewhat muscle-brained space captain in a quirky, intentionally silly galaxy and has to escape from space pirates and even his own treacherous lieutenant. For the most part the puzzles were fair, though there are a couple of spots where I had to get a clue online because if you don't put the cursor in exactly the right spot you'll miss an important object. The game has a good sense of humor and interesting artwork, though lines of dialogue do not receive audio support. All in all, a fun entry in the genre.
