About this gameAfter spending years as a starving artist, you've managed to catch the eye of an influential gallery director. The problem: he wants to see some new work, and you've got a terrible cold that is draining your creativity. You'd better find a cure for the common cold--and fast! Brought to you by Team Strange Potato! :) An Italian version is now available, thanks to Cinfa :)

I did find this game rather amusing, with nice puzzles, a good combination for a good game.
Could have scored higher if there were more animations.
The game has no surprises but it does its job quite well, and the puzzles are alright (maybe a bit on the easy and unoriginal side).
Nevertheless, I feel it is way superior to most short games, so I can just recommend it!
What makes A Cure for the Common Cold so good is its brilliantly witty script, a cynical observational monologue of poverty, depression and apathy with could not be more funny. I particularly like the final punchline, which really left me smiling.
A Cure for the Common Cold is a great game for anyone who has ever lived the the cliched squalor of a student apartment. If you never have, I recommend you play it anyway as you'll still find plenty to chuckle about.
