Have You Played... Strong Bad's Cool Game For Attractive People?

Featured post

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.

Homestar Runner is alive again! Not nearly as alive as it once was, but there have been Halloween cartoons the last two years, and hints that the Brothers Chap are learning HTML5 to replace the aged Flash site. Which is all a very good reason to embrace what was previously the animation’s swansong, a series of adventures made with Telltale.

With puzzles from the likes of Mike Stemmle (Sam & Max Hit The Road) and writing and voice work from the original creators, this coalesced into Telltale’s first not crap adventure game – in fact, it was positively good. Two of the five episodes were great!

Most importantly, it was extremely funny – with the caveat that if you’re the sort of slughead who doesn’t find H*R funny, then you won’t enjoy this either. But then you don’t deserve to enjoy anything. It picked up and ran with the cartoon’s running jokes, while including great new stories, some really decent puzzles (and some mediocre ones), and all came together just right.

Sadly the seven year old game is currently grossly overpriced both on GOG and Steam. (Although GOG will knock a significant $14.50 off a further purchase.)
