We got Charles Cecil, the CEO of adventure game specialists Revolution, into the Trusted Reviews studio last week, and we figured it was high time to ask him about one of Revolution8217;s most fiendish creations: Broken Sword8217;s Goat Puzzle. On video. With no escape.
Explaining the solution to one of the hardest video game puzzles of all time, which involves you getting knocked to the floor by a goat in order to best it, Cecil admits: 8220;Basically, it was a cheat. It was a cheat because for the first time in the game, we were requiring the player to do something that was slightly different.8221;
Here, you can hear Cecil explaining the origins of the puzzle, how the team broke the rules trying to bamboozle some of the game8217;s most vocal fans, and how Cecil made a mortal enemy in the shape of one particular London cabbie.
