In a night of great game names I’m pretty willing to bet you haven’t played a game that looks like this. For a week. Paul Moose In Space, the work of a man going by ‘thecatamites’ created this AGS adventure as an entry to GameJolt‘s Axiom contest. And “created” really is the right word. This is hand drawn characters, and even hand-built sets, animated in the game to produce a lunatic point and click adventure.
There’s not a huge amount to it, with two or three puzzles in total. But they’re splendidly silly, and mostly involve walking about followed by various household appliances. With happy faces. And there’s eyes-on-stalks aliens, which make any game up to 24% more gooder. It also features the music of Raymond Scott, which is a mad pleasure to hear. Europeans and those within what will be known in the future as “the Spotify Territories” can listen to his stuff here.
