MacRomeo and Julius is a very silly game that tasks you with converting Shakespeare’s death of Julius Caesar into a comedy, the balcony scene from Romeo and Juliet into a fight and the showdown between Macbeth and MacDuff into a romance.
Shakespeare has managed to scatter all of his scripts across the floor and the audience is waiting, so you’ll need to think on your feet. Every great play features some comedy at the beginning, conflict in the middle and romance at the end. Unfortunately you’ll have to make the random scenes from different plays that you found scattered across the floor fit those criteria – so you have to substitute words in scenes to totally change their meaning. So, for instance if Brutus farts and pulls out a trout instead of a knife during Julius Caesar’s murder scene it changes it from a drama to a comedy, and if Romeo shouts up to Juliet “what hideousness though yonder window breaks?” it transforms from a tale of love into a tale of conflict.
MacRomeo and Julius impresses through out it’s short playtime with It’s a very silly premise, great sense of humor and charming pixel art visuals. You’ve never truly experienced Shakespeare until you hear the line ‘Most High, most bootylicious Caesar, Metellous gyrates before you’!
