Spellirium Minute Episode #5: Something Borrowed, Something Loom

When i say that Spellirium is a cross between Loom and Boggle, i ain’t just whistling Dixie. Brian Moriarty’s adventure game masterpiece, which was so classy with its use of a Tchaikovsky soundtrack, remains one of my favourite games of all time.



It turns out, as i reveal in the video, that i didn’t rip off Loom as badly as i’d thought. And Lloyd Alexander, who looks in person every bit like Quentin Blake’s drawing of Roald Dahl’s The BFG (due to his other-worldly schnozz), liberally borrowed from Welsh mythology for his Prydain Chronicles.

Great artists steal.

    Your 2nd subscription link gives 404. Not sure your first link is pointing to the right place. Also, in the RSS feed, the bottom part of your post is wonky.
