PLAY IT AGAIN: AN IMPROV POINT AND CLICK ADVENTURE (Warning: huge download)


In a world where every man, woman and child's worth is measured by the quality of their facial hair: You, The Player, are without moustache. Will seeking the help of a notorious mobster be the answer to your prayers? Can you finally become worthy of the affections of your old lover? Can I think of anything interesting to say about the fourth character? They are a pianist? I guess not.

Finally, the most taxing question of all... Why is a one room game over 200MB? Find out the answers when you play Play It Again! And then play it again!

Best.Idea.Ever!
I had to google that Ed Atlin guy. With that voice, I figured he must be voice acting in some way, shape or form on a regular basis. I think I still have about 20 or 30 more plays to try out. :grin:  I'm trying to pick my top 3 combinations.
Oh, and haunting is a good word for the piano music. It totally works and yet it doesn't. My ears just get all confused, it's great.

I've been a fan of his animations and youtube videos for a decade, it's so cool to me he wanted to be involved!

I hope Eggie gets Best Innovation at the next AGS Awards - this is such a great idea!  (Well, unless an even better innovation comes along before the end of the year... :tongue:)

Really cool idea! So simple to play and enjoy, but I'm sure it was a heck of a lot of work to put it all together (just editing and loading all that dialogue into the engine for starters!)

I had no idea when I finished that there would be so many possible combinations, it's almost overwhelming :-D

Oh and that music... far out. "Haunting" is right!

Late to the party, but downloading this now! What a strange and wonderful concept.
