I don’t know… maybe I was a nerd. But back in the day, during summer recess, I actually thought about school. I missed my friends, I missed class, I missed being apart of something. Summer for me was pretty “blah” as a kid. Growing up in the city, the pool and sprinkler (aka the fire hydrant on the corner) were pretty much all the summer excitement that we were going to get. As you can see, that can get pretty lame, pretty quick. For that same reason, the game that reminds me of summer is Rival Schools for the original PlayStation.
Time Hollow is a story-driven point and tap style adventure along the lines of the cult classic like Phoenix Wright. In Time Hollow, players assume the identity of Ethan Kairos, a high school student whose parents disappear on his 17th birthday. Strangely enough it’s as though they never existed. After your parents’ disappearance, you come to possess something called the “hollow pen”. Not your average, ordinary nerd tool; the pen can draw portals into time. This pen becomes immensely useful as ultimately what remains of your past are these unclear picture-like memories, also known as “flashbacks”. With said pen, you can draw portals to specific moments within these flashbacks. Still with me? Good.
The human mind never ceases to amaze me; old Atari cartridges are being converted into wallets. Enter “cha-ching” sound here people. Niles, the wallet’s maker, ingeniously converted an Atari 2600 Pac-man cartridge using every single component therein. Warning: Upon seeing probably the coolest wallet ever made, jealousy may ensue. These sexy beasts start at $35, which means E.T. is worth something after all. Check out Nilesz’ etsy page for the complete catalog of envy-inducers.
