Host Master and the Conquest of Humor

Do you like old point-and-click adventure games?

Then you’ll love (or at least find rather amusing):
Host Master and the Conquest of Humour

Play as Tim Schafer, founder of Double Fine Productions, and a name inextractably linked to such games as the Monkey Island 1&2, Grim Fandango, …and other games you can surely find yourself, but I feel guilty mentioning because I don’t own/haven’t played them.

Anyway, Host Master is super cute, if the puzzles are slightly contrived (you cut something to get something that you have to cut to get something else).  It’s terribly kitsch and self-aware, and was great fun.  Make sure you get all 22 jokes (not a spoiler, because if you don’t get them, they tell you that you only got x of 22 jokes), and start a new game, just for a little extra laugh 🙂

Ps, Thanks to Brendad for the link 🙂
