The real-life movie adaptation was nightmare fuel though. I'll never be able to get the half bald Karlsson out of my mind.Makko said:
I used to love to play point and click adventure games. The last picture reminded me of Deponia, maybe the last true game of its genre.Makko said:Karlsson on the Roof is comfy. One of the books I've read when learning the language. I was so jealous of Karlsson who had a propeller on his back. He could fly anywhere he wanted and cause all sorts of mischief

He also lives in a tiny house on the roof:

Deponia was once inhabited with a large number of people, but the majority moved out to a utopian-style floating city called Elysium, turning Deponia into a dumping ground for their junk. In the very first episode of the game the protagonist tries to shoot himself out to Elysium with an improvised contraption, a capsule attached to a rocket. Of course the plan backfired, as he forgot to put the screws in the capsule.
Eventually he gets to Elysium, not because he still wants to escape, but because he tries to save his planet which the good people of Elysium are now trying to blow up.

I miss these old style games. They were well thought out, funny and relaxing. Now everything is so rushed.
I wish my PC didn't broke. This trip down memory lane makes me wanna replay the oldies, Monkey Island in particular. Oh, and Sanitarium, which is the opposite of funny, but one of my favorites (and highly relatable).Makko said:I recommend Edna & Harvey. It's about a girl who is trying to escape a nuthouse (highly relatable). You get to make friends with other crazies and uncover your terrible past together with your talking plush bunny. One thing I like about this game is the unusually destructible environment for a point and click game. You can really vandalise the place if you put your mind to it.

Fortunately I have a PS4, and Edna and Harvey are available. I knew about the game before, but didn't know if it was any good.
Harvey just tempomorphed me 10 years into the past to make me remember how to pick screws without a tool. It seems every first chapter in a Daedalic game has something to do with screws...Makko said:Have fun
I will take that as the final puzzle of the game.Makko said:There are several endings. You can guess which one is my favorite.
