Lisa expansion The Joyful is out later this month, here's a trailer

Lisa the Joyful

Lisa: The Joyful is an expansion to the sidescrolling, post-apocalyptic, weird Lisa: The Painful RPG, which intrigued Phil back in October of last year. Dingaling's roleplayer has developed something of a cult following since its release, but then how could a game about "survival, sacrifice, and perverts" not? If you've not heard of Lisa, think of a very dark Earthbound. Then add a touch of Fallout. Then mix well, light on fire and run away.

Here's a new trailer for The Joyful, which will release for "$5 or lower" on August 25th. (Thanks, Reddit.)

And here's the original teaser trailer:

Tom loves exploring in games, whether it’s going the wrong way in a platformer or burgling an apartment in Deus Ex. His favourite game worlds—Stalker, Dark Souls, Thief—have an atmosphere you could wallop with a blackjack. He enjoys horror, adventure, puzzle games and RPGs, and played the Japanese version of Final Fantasy VIII with a translated script he printed off from the internet. Tom has been writing about free games for PC Gamer since 2012. If he were packing for a desert island, he’d take his giant Columbo boxset and a laptop stuffed with PuzzleScript games.
