Absolutely the best contemporary point-and-click adventure game I've played in years - and I play a lot of adventure games. The characters, the story, the dystopian retro-cyberpunk setting and the clever, yet logical, puzzles all contribute to making this a beautiful adventure that deserves to be praised and regarded as a classic in the years to come.
The game also contains several easter eggs and secrets which, along with the branching dialogue paths in the story, the behind-the-scenes commentary, and the alternative solutions to puzzles, should contribute to its re-playability factor.
The only aspects that I find mar this otherwise flawless gem include the combat scenes (which feature quite heavily towards the end - yes, you can die), the inability to change the resolution from the in-game options menu (which led to some heavy pixellation on my 1920x1080 screen) and the lingering sense that your in-game decisions don't have a large effect on the conclusion of the story.
Amazing soundtrack, artsy visual style and brain-tickling gameplay. This is one of those rare examples of modern games that can be called art. You don't come by games like this very often (it's also one of the few games I've managed to convince my non-gamer friends to fall in love with).
Love comedic point-and-click adventures from the days of yore? Are you a fan of (slightly naughty) British humour? Then these games are definitely for you. They're cheap too, and you get two games for the price of one.
The story is suitably nonsensical: the second game involves Hitler controlling an army of mechanical Tyrannosaurus Rex, a suicidal robotic AI and a whole bunch of time-travelling hi-jinks.
Unlike most low-budget adventure games; a lot of effort has been expended on making every possible interaction with the game world produce some sort of humorous commentary (with the occasional "breaking of the 4th wall").
The first game, "Ben There, Dan That!", is technically free from the developer's website (feel free to give it a try), but considering the dwindling quality of adventure games in the modern era, I believe that any true fan should be able to contribute a few € or $ in support of hilarious, quality indie adventures.
In retrospect, this sounds like a sales-pitch XD.
