Get I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream for Free

GOG.com has rolled out I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream as the second if its promised giveaways for the GOG Winter Sale. Originally released in 1995, this point-and-click adventure is based on a short story by Harlan Ellison, and the late sci-fi author was integral to the game's design. This older game is presented as part of a collaboration with The Video Game History Foundation. The site offers an Interview with Video Game History Foundation founder Frank Cifaldi as well as a TVGHF Support Pack where all proceeds will go to supporting the non-profit organization. While you're there, a bunch of new games have been added to the sale. Here's more on today's giveaway:
The last people on Earth are buried deep within the center of the earth, trapped in the bowels of an insane computer for the past hundred and nine years. Gorrister the suicidal loner. Benny the mutilated brute. Ellen the hysterical phobic. Nimdok the secretive sadist. Ted the cynical paranoid. It's time for them to play a little game...

I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream plunges you into a harrowing adventure deep within the belly of an electronic beast. Uncover the last humans' deepest, darkest secrets. Defend yourself against AM's continuous psychological onslaught. Solve the riddles of the past and perhaps free yourself from AM's clutches once and for all in an adventure you'll never forget!

Indeed, grammar is important. It's the difference between helping your Uncle Jack off a horse or helping your uncle jack off a horse.

Lots of artists are asshats/assholes/etc. It's more of a symptom of humanity thing then a job specific thing right? As long as I am not giving the asshole money, I will take a look at the asshole's artistry as time/interest allows.

So...SNAGGED.

Setting aside if the author was an asshat, his work was outstanding. This is more of digitally presented story with PG graphics and the only game is a few simple puzzles, but the horror and bleakness is overpowering. None of the contemporary 'horror' titles come even close.

I always thought Harlan Ellison's story 'Repent, Harlequin!' Said the Ticktockman would make a good film or game. I heard that he shopped it around Hollywood as a film but it never got made.

It seemed like something that would be right up Terry Gilliam's alley. I wonder if Ellison ever tried pitching it to him.

A little silliness, gleeful mayhem, and frivolity mixed in with Ellison's usual dark nastiness.

Plus, he left so many of the details vague and the story was barely novella sized so someone adapting it could really go to town with creative license.

This game was based off a pretty great sci-fi story, but I couldn't really get into the game. Maybe if I had stumbled upon it in 1995, I might have made it through.
