Ironic, or idiotic?
Ironic, or idiotic?

Several weeks ago BitPulses’ David Sanchez posted a story about a new adventure game that popped up on Steam Geenlight called Bureau: Agent Kendall Episodes. Rather than tell you everything David said about the game, let’s play a game. I’m going to list six words that David used to describe Bureau, and you see if you can guess what his opinion is of it.

Ready? Here we go!

  • Crazy
  • Overly
  • Nudity
  • Girl-on-girl
  • Asinine
  • Sexualized

Can ya guess? Do you love acrostics? Either way, at this point you’re either clicking the link to the full BitPulse story to get more juicy details, or rolling your eyes in disgust.

See, three episodes of the Bureau series have already been released for consoles and mobile devices, so there’s already a game out there. However, the developers are seeking Kickstarter funds in order to improve various aspects of the game, such as graphics, user interface, and voice acting; in addition to unifying the story of the previous games.

Head over to the Bureau: Agent Kendall Episodes Kickstarter page and check the campaign out. While you’re there ask yourself some questions:

  • Is this what games were like in the 90’s?
  • Is it this absurd on purpose?
  • Why are there no screenshots if the game is already available?
  • They didn’t make enough money to do a PC version themselves?
  • Is the developer dense, or a genius?
  • Does David secretly love the game?

Bureau – Season 1 has a Kickstarter funding goal of $13,500, the campaign runs until June 1st.
