About this gameEnter the surreal, disturbing, and ridiculous world of the Knobbly Crook in this old-school point-and-click adventure. O'Sirus the Snip is a simple paper farmer driven to epic adventure by a spooky face with a spookier voice. He will ultimately seek to become a Knobbcrookian royal guardâ€“a Guffaloon. Stories of their heroic battles against the fearsome Bogold empire echo throughout the Crook. Unfortunately, theyâ€™re not currently recruiting simple paper farmers. Heâ€™s going to have to use every dirty trick in his book to cheat his way to the top and that means YOU will need to understand the key elements of the Knobbly Crook - Rock, Paper, and Scissors. Creatures of stone crush the metallic Knobbcrookians. The Knobbcrookians herd and farm paper animals. Fearsome stone giants fear tiny paper animals.

Apart from a few cringey jokes and a rather rushed ending that throws a ton of huge plot points at you in just a few minutes, it's overall a great fun and intriguing game that has truly unique worldbuilding and visuals.
The quality of backgrounds, character art, animations, voices and sounds is outstanding and is usually only found in commercial games.
Some puzzles are difficult and I had to refer to the video walkthrough on YouTube.
Labelling hotspots would have helped because it can be hard to find objects in the busy backgrounds.
Overall, it's a must-play and you won't regret it if you're prepared to put some effort to understand this crazy world :)
