Simon the Sorcerer Review: When Greywolfe Met Pixels

So, I'm going to confess to something right away: I was intensely worried about replaying this game, twenty years along.

WRUPXIT

Ah-ah-ah-aha! Sorry, I can’t stop laughing about the Brits. Especially David Cameron, who really fucked himself for a change (yes, this is a Pig joke).
