This is probably an old subject, but I thought I'd give my 2-cents about this
Okay, this is fan art of the controversial game "Doctor Lautrec and the Forgotten Knights" Most of ya'll probably know it for being a "Professor Layton rip-off". No offense but people who say that irk me a little bit. Believe me, I'm as much of a Layton fangirl as the next person, and this is comming from a biased-Layton fan.
I played it, and enjoyed it a lot. I honestly can't look at the doctor as being the slightest bit similar to Layton. And the gameplay mechanics are very different too. Yes, there are puzzles. But most of the game consists of navigating dungeons and fighting monsters in an rpg-style gameplay.
Not to say Konami isn't at fault for this. I really wish they took more time and effort to design Doctor lautrec, to not look like the professor and garner so much hate. And his "apprentice" Sophie (character in the artwork) may act a little bit like Luke at times, but her relationship with Lautrec versus Luke's relationship with Layton is a lot differentTL;DR Doctor lautrec is not a Layton rip-off and more people should give it a chance.
/feels like the only Doctor Lautrec fan in exsistance
