    A prime example of a product that's been designed for the old-timers that have grown up playing adventure games from LucasArts and Sierra. It's an excellent tribute to the former giants of the adventure game industry. [Apr 2013]

    Yep, we’ve already seen everything Fester Mudd has to offer. This game is a well-polished amalgamation of old plots and jokes that doesn’t dare venture far on its own. Although, considering that most modern game developers can’t even match the level of quality set by their predecessors, I think we should forgive Fester Mudd for its slavish admiration of the old classics.

    Fester Mudd delivers an entertaining point-and-click-adventure experience, but given the game’s earnest devotion the genre’s sometimes-frustrating tropes, you might only want to give it a shot if you’re particularly nostalgic for the days of Guybrush Threepwood and Roger Wilco.

    Though I'm looking forward to the next episode, I am, perhaps, not quite as excited about it as I would be if this was an adventure game that wasn't so adamant about sticking to extremely old genre conventions -- both good and bad.

    Though it clings a little too tightly to its classic retro roots, the first episode of Fester Mudd is a short but decent comedy western.

    Fester Mudd is a solid adventure game. Most of the puzzles make sense and the humor is great. The game loses points because it is very short,Fester Mudd is a solid adventure game. Most of the puzzles make sense and the humor is great. The game loses points because it is very short, about 2-3 hours of gameplay. Hopefully they will release more episodes, because right now the game feels like a long demo. Expand
