Daedalic Entertainment recently announced that Clerks actor Jeff Anderson would be the voice of Randal Hicks for the upcoming point and click game Randal’s Monday, in development at Nexus Games Studios. At Gamescom the publisher released a new video showcasing some of Anderson’s work in-game and a few clips of him in the studio. It looks like he’s a perfect fit for a game that’s filled with pop culture references, and his usual acting style is on full display. I’m very interested in this one, as it seems like the type of adventure that should have plenty of hilarious situations and reactions to everything you can click on. Randal’s Monday will be out sometime this fall.

Hamburg, Germany/ Alicante, Spain; August 12th, 2014. Clerks actor Jeff Anderson and iconic figure of the 90’s geek culture is back! In a new video the Hollywood actor presents his role Randal Hicks from the point & geek adventure Randal’s Monday. The video, which was shot during the voice recordings at the OMUK studios in London during the past weeks, is available here:

Anderson, who is known for his role of Randal Graves in the 90’s cult movies Clerks, Clerks II and the accompanying TV-series, is into all sorts of Randal-characters and has just been waiting for a project like Randal’s Monday to come along: „I got this showbiz thing going on where I could only play Randal, so I just look for the coolest projects that involve Randal and here it is.”

To the games’ developers from Nexus Games Studios the Clerks’ franchise and Anderson’s character have been a major inspiration for their own main character Randal Hicks, who is meant to be a tribute to the Clerks-movies and one of Randal’s Monday’s countless references to the geek culture. It also makes Jeff Anderson the perfect choice for main character in Randal’s Monday.

The point & geek adventure will be a feast for every single of your geek-senses and a tribute to a whole generation of fans and the heroes they grew up with. Players can look forward not only to many, many nostalgic items, but also cynical humor and a bizarre top notch story.

Randal’s Monday authentically illustrates just how tough it is to get through the week’s most annoying day – even for the protagonist Randal Hicks, who prefers an easy take on life, rather than a serious one. His slacker attitude, though, gets him into one mess after another.

After celebrating his best friend Matt’s engagement, Randal wakes up on a Monday morning with a serious hangover, Matt’s wallet and something very precious: Matt’s engagement ring.
Finding the ring is a convenient opportunity, since Randal gets not only fired, but also can no longer stall his landlord. In these dire circumstances, Randal can’t help but to sell the ring for some cash. The consequences, however, are fatal and Randal suffers a horrible curse for his actions: Matt commits suicide and Randal is forced to live through the same fateful Monday again and again to atone for his mistake. Randal needs to reclaim the ring and sort his life out before things get worse – so worse that even the very fabric of the universe is in peril.

The classic point & click gameplay and countless items and nods toward the golden age of geek culture deliver precious nostalgia to all players who hold their childhood memories and heroes dear. Retro-consoles? Favorite flicks, shows and games from the 80s, 90s, and the early 2k? Randal’s Monday has all of that and it’s truly worth your time to find each and every reference made in this game.

Randal’s Monday is developed by the team of Nexus Game Studios in Spain and is published worldwide by the adventure experts of Daedalic Entertainment. The game’s scheduled for release in fall 2014.
