You Can Now Have I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream

I wish GOG would stop revealing gaps in my playlist. I never played 1995's Harlan Ellision horror adventure, I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream. Unquestionably one of the best game titles of all time (lifted from the 1967 short story), I missed it in a blur of A Levels. But now there's a way to make up for it, via a $6 release.

All of humanity but for five people are dead by the hands of an evil computer called AM. He's since kept those five alive for 109 years, to torture them. Happy times. Preying on their weaknesses, AM has created a series of adventures for each of the five, and you must outdo the horrid AI. But in a rather serious way, the game dealing with ethical dilemmas that cover huge topics like genocide and rape.

Right, so, that's for the weekend then.
