Point-and-click adventure game I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream is now available on GOG.com for $5.99. For those unfamiliar, the 1995 science fiction/horror game is based on Harlan Ellison’s Hugo-winning short story of the same name.
The end of humanity has been one of the most overused tropes in media, but I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream uses the setting in a fresh, yet unsettling manner. Critics have described the point-and-click adventure as one of the most nerve-wrecking, disturbing and depressing games in history. Ethical dilemmas discuss mature topics such as rape, paranoia and genocide, so if you’re looking for a mature and though-provoking adventure, this is it.
I’ve been meaning to play this game for some time. But before GOG came alog, tracking down copies of classic adventure games like this one was extremely hard (not to mention expensive.) Luckily, now I only need $5.99 to see what the fuss is all about.
