Let’s Play: Blacksea Odyssey

This Old Man enjoys fishing in his twilight years, and he’s harpooning Elder Gods in space.



I take on the star-sailing new roguelike styled SHMUP: Blacksea Odyssey in this latest Let’s Play. As the aptly named veteran bounty hunter “Old Man”, I try and harpoon some giant squids… in space! Problem is, they fart poison and vomit icy death at me. Will I be proudly bringing home a 100-foot Cthulu monster for dinner or will I end up like Captain Ahab? Check out the video below to find out!

SPOILER ALERT: I do attempt a freestyle rap to the oh-so-funky shop music at about the 39:30 minute mark…


Jonathan is HeyPoorPlayer's token British person, so expect him to thoroughly exploit this by quoting Monty Python and saying things like "Pip, pip, toodly-whotsit!" for the delight of American readers. He likes artsy-fartsy games, RPGs and RPG-Hybrids (which means pretty much everything at this point). He used to write for Sumonix.com. He's also just realised how much fun it is to refer to himself in the third person like he's The Rock or something.
