This month's theme was centered around the theme of mad science which I love when it comes to video games. It's full of science and weird stuff happening because of it. The featured games include: Resident Evil, Portal, Mega Man, and Psychonauts. I haven't played all these games personally but I do know the general story line of each of these. Either from watching other people play it through Twitch or YouTube, or just random other places.
Portal Companion Cube & Necktie
The box this month turns into a companion cube and includes a necktie with a repeating pattern of the cubes from Portal. One thing that I love from the game is that you're told that the cubes cannot talk, but if one does talk just to ignore anything it says. Which makes you wonder, did they force people into the cubes? They never truly say but you can gather as much while playing through the first-person puzzle platform game.
Mega Man Proto Man Helmet
This is a game that follows the titular android character that was created by Dr. Light. They have to defend the world from Dr. Wily's violent robotic threats. The Proto Man first appeared in the third Mega Man. He was known as a Break Man until his secret identity was revealed. This helmet serves as a reminder that not every experiment is going to go perfectly but doesn't mean you shouldn't try.
Resident Evil 7 T-Shirt
This is the first game in the series to actually feature first person perspective, and it was just released in January. It is a game that is basically a survival horror game set about four years after RE6, and shows the evil of science. RE7 follows Ethan, a civilian in Louisiana which is why the shirt features a derelict plantation mansion.
This game follows a character named Raz who is a young boy with psychic abilities. They are going to be releasing a VR version of Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin and Psychonauts 2. The goggles are replicas of Raz's iconic goggles. And according to Loot Gaming, "they are not responsible for any latent powers that may arise."
