Pipe Mania: Pipedreamz

Merry Christmas. Messhof has a new game out, and it’s called Pipedreamz. I’m going to go ahead and say that he named the game after the drug-pipe he uses to smoke his drugs! I am saying that Messhof’s games are weird. Messhof, if you want to sue me for libel then this is my email address.

Pipedreamz embodies the Californian dream of working in a burger shop, riding the waves, scarfing down tasty snacks and (more generally) trying to get as high a score as possible before you’re fired. Like most of Messhof’s games, the music’s amazing and it’s better played than described. It’s also not Nidhogg. MESSHOF! Snap whatever legal shackles are preventing you from releasing Nidhogg and release it. The people need it in their lives. Thanks to the IndieGames blog for the tipoff. Merry Christmas, IndieGames blog.

    Merry Christmas, RPS!

    Hang loose, or something.
    It looks and feels a lot like the product of the La-La-Land guy reading Tim Roger’s idea of a surfer lifestyle simulation (link to kotaku.com) and giving it a try. In other words, splendid, of course.

    Oh, and I suck at flipping burgers. That is all.

    Failing to include the correct “mailto:” attribute to avoid litigation is a bit of a dick move.

  4. Talsidor says:

    Hey Quinns. You’ve got to put “mailto:” before that email address for the link to work properly.
    Or maybe you left that out on purpose to mislead potential suers.

    Dude… like… uh… uhhhh…. what?

  6. Eukatheude says:

    what is this i don’t even

  7. Berzee says:

    Played through the burger-flipping section…did not enjoy even a little bit. I think it’s the ugly teeth…

  8. Berzee says:

    All the ugly teeth kept me from knowing whether I enjoyed the gameplay or not. I’m just superficial that way. >_>

    Merry Christmas, Quintin Smith.

    How do you get fired I think I’m too good at this game
    Surfing is boring

  12. Miles of the Machination says:

    This is Messhoff’s 15th attempt at a simple point and click adventure game where the Neighborhood gang solves mysteries. Messhoff wasn’t like the other children.

  13. Tei says:

    No one is going to make a game about love?

  14. lurkalisk says:

    I think this is best described as a meat eating simulator with some burger flipping and surfing.

    A shame eating sims are on the decline…

  15. Tetragrammaton says:

    I love everything about the game except for the gameplay. Rather like Metro 2033.

  16. Nogo says:

    Despite my continual, crushing failure I want nothing more than to ride that goddamn pipe.
