'Randal's Monday' Voiced By Clerks Actor - Trailer

Randal's Monday is a comic humor point & geek adventure that centers around geek and pop culture references from the 1990s and early 2000s, and gives a pretty authentic insight into how hard it is to overcome these stupid days of each week.

Randal is the best main character one can ever imagine: he’s kleptomaniac, a sociopath and an awful friend above all.

After his friend Matt’s engagement party, waking up on a Monday morning with a massive hang over, Randal finds Matt’s wallet in his pocket. Inside the wallet, there’s that really precious engagement ring.

It doesn’t take Randal much and long to sell the ring – triggering a fatal curse: Matt commits suicide, and Randal is now supposed to live through the same fateful Monday again and again, doing whatever is needed in order to fix the horrible situation. Randal must recover the one precious ring and his life, before the situation worsens… or the universe collapses.

Randal’s Monday features cynical humor, geek culture references and classic point & click adventure gameplay at its best: The game pays tribute to a generation of gamers, readers and viewers of subculture media products. Players will find countless items and references to things they grew up with. Retro video gaming consoles, anyone? Your favorite movies and TV series from the 80s, 90s and 2000s? It’s all in there! Take your time and pixel-hunt each screen for everything that’s in there – whereas the adventure gameplay takes care to use all of today’s comfort features, of course.

Hollywood actor Jeff Anderson will be the English voice of the game's protagonist and also assists the developers in creating the script. Anderson is mostly known for his role as Randal Graves from the 'Clerks'-series.

The similarity of names is no mere coincidence: the developers of Nexus Game Studios are huge fans of 'Clerks' and the movie's sequel. The game's protagonist is a tribute to the movies and one of many pop-culture references.

"We are big fans of Jeff Anderson's work but especially of his role in ‘Clerks’. When we first started to design this story in that filthy old garage, we could never have imagined that he would end up being the voice of our Randal. We know he is a very selective man when it comes to the projects he decides to participate in, so it's a real honor for us to be able to have him on board and give life to our main character. Nobody else in the world could ever interpret Randal better than he does. It's like the icing on the cake for this huge project", explains Enric Costa, Lead Producer of Randals Monday.

Jeff Anderson took on the role of Randal Graves in the first movie Clerks (1994) and continued to play the character through the second installment and the TV-series.
