As Nicola so politely requested of me, it’s about time for the Budge family to have a holiday! So Sonny and Nicola packed their bags and jetted off to Al Simhara, as a sort of late honeymoon, let’s say.
No last times under the cut this update, this is just a fun interlude-thing.
Base-camp in Al Simhara consists of a lot of tents, a small eating area, a message board and a loo. If you look closely you can see Sonny telling Nicola about his favourite colour, though god knows why.
Wanting to make the most out of their trip, Nicola and Sonny head straight for the pyramids and tombs to explore!
Nicola apparently has a death wish, because she explored the sarcophagus in the tomb like it was no problem! Imagine if there’d been a mummy in there, Nicola!
Nicola: Pfft, there’s no such thing as mummies.
I mean, they’re a real thing, they’re just really, really dead.
Sonny does the most labour in the tombs- pulling stuff around, stepping on plates, activating switches, but he’s also the want rolling the most wants to do so!
And Nicola does do her part! Albeit reluctantly…
Nicola: I think I touched something slimy!!
She gets into it eventually, too.
Nicola: This is kind of fun! Like solving really cool, really old puzzles.
Sonny: What in fresh hell is this?
Welp! Looks like there is such a thing as mummies, after all! Not only that, but angry, cursed mummies!
Mummy: What the hell are you doing in my tomb?
Sonny: Is that… an iPod nano??
Mummy: DON’T TOUCH THAT, I STILL HAVE THE WARRANTY
Sonny: Wait a second! Who are you? Why do you smell so…old and decayed?
Mummy: I TOLD YOU NOT TO TOUCH MY STUFF
Sonny: Ahhhhhhh! This isn’t as cool as the movies!!!
Mummy: That’ll teach him.
Poor Sonny, he was just exploring! I’m glad he didn’t get cursed though. I’m sure he’ll want to leave as soon as he recovers, too, so that’s the last we’ll be seeing of the mummy for a while.
Sure enough, when he wakes up Sonny heads straight back to base camp, where Nicola is there to comfort him. *ahem*
Ah, Al Simhara is so pretty! I wouldn’t mind sleeping outside if my view was like that 🙂
Nicola heads to the
badly-rendered market the next day to buy some souvenirs for home!
She wants to be a culinary librarian, after all, so she’ll need to buy all the recipes she can from egypt.
She also decided to try her hand at snake-charming, because that’s a totally smart idea!
Don’t put your hand in the basket, Nicola!
Nicola: Why not? It’s asleep, anyways.
Sonny does a quest, but it turns out to be a long one and he never actually finishes it.
What’s up, Sonny?
Sonny: The map says to go left past the skeleton, but I’m confused where to go next.
I guess that’s one way to find your way around.
Sonny learns some local songs from a guy wearing a speedo.
And he and Nicola spend their last night hanging out at base camp, roasting a whole packet of hotdogs in one go, because why not?
Nicola: I’m a vegetarian
*tofu dogs then, yeesh.
The game then forces us to return home. I’m not gonna lie, I kind of wish they carried suitcases with them like in ts2 Bon Voyage. Oh well! To bed, guys, it’s time to rest before next update!
Next time: Even I don’t know what will happen because I haven’t played yet!!
