The Hillyan News

Beyond good and evil is, as far as I can tell, a quirky little nihilistic book from a rather famous philosopher sporting a moustache. Quite unexpectedly it also is a beautiful, refreshing and optimistic video game.

To help you get an idea, here's a trailer (of the game; of course):



In reality it does look far superior than this, but that's not what I wanted to ... er ... blog about. The real interesting thing is that, I, being the lucky sod I am, discovered a hidden-secret-easter eggish website. Hillyan News. It's brilliant, Beyond Good and Evil related and very-very interesting, even for the masses who have never heard of the game. It is as brilliant as Lucasarts hidden ftp stash or as the whack-your-boss flash thingy was.

  2. Without wanting to mess with your tome, let me ask you -nay, implore you- to at least try it (out of the tome's order). It's a very rare masterpiece, that can be picked up for less than 10e.

  4. Hope it lives up to your expectations Mr. Elderly... And as the great Mr. Addams used to preach: Don't Panic!

  5. Rather old news, this Hillyan one. The problem of this game is that it's secrets are revealed too soon. Still enjoyed it.
    And also, why didn't you mention the site of the rebels, www.irisnetwork.net ?

  6. There were many reasons for not including Iris' network... The main one wasn't that I din't know it existed. Thanks, Chentzilla.
