(To the tune of Waltzing Matilda)

In West Australia, near the town of Doodlakine,
Lived young Ben Chandler, a good man was he,
And he kept all his candy, in a little metal tin,
Ben Chandler's Sweets Tin was something to see


Oh no! Ben's sweets tin has gone missing! How will he ever enjoy life without his delicious candy?!

This is where you, the player, come in. Guide young Ben Chandler (aka Ben304) through the wild and rugged Australian wilderness as he goes searching for his beloved tin.  Who knows, he might even encounter some paranormal phenomena along the way.

A real hard challenge without any sweets to be solved – funny idea!   ;D
 
Since Chandler is outed now as AGS'er in your screenie,
he deserved to be saved and I will be sure to have enough sweets aside me while playing ...
and a lot of coffee to be able to make it through

They had me at G'Day of the Tentacle.  :D

Personally, I'm assuming that the giant mountain of porn is in the foreground, blocking off the rest of the shack (?) and preventing us from exploring the bedroom, the bath, or the kitchen. No sir, young Ben has all he needs in that one un-pornified corner of the shack: a computer, a musical instrument, and a door to go exploring the outside world in the never ending search for fresh porn.  :=
