Where's an egg?

The sheer unhindered joy that is Homestar Runner is on a short hiatus at the moment, since one of the Bros. Chaps has gone and had a baby, and apparently that’s somehow more important than drawing a Flash cartoon on the internet.

However, during the gap – and thankfully making writing about it relevant to this site – there’s been an update to their excellent Videlectrix site. Should you be unitiated, a part of the H*R nonsense is Strong Bad’s archaic computer, and the games that play on it. Celebrating the pixellated joy of the earliest PC games, and indeed their Acorn, Spectrum, etc counterparts, these spoof minis do a surprising job of being almost as good as the real thing.

None are so great as the Thy Dungeonman series, capturing the inane nature of text adventures better than the text adventures ever did.

But filling my needs just now is the newly published Where’s An Egg? Described as a game bought overseas, and coming without an instruction booklet, it’s been impossible to play until the recently discovered single page from the instructions found on an auction site. It seems like you’re maybe, sort of, supposed to identify who is lying and who is telling the truth, and thus learn who has an egg. Also you can shoot people. It is so perfectly reminiscent of that one tape you had in an unmarked box that you could never figure out, but yet felt compelled to play.
