…It’s TGI Friday: Dangeresque Roomiside 1: Behind The Dangerdesque?

Dangeresque

Dangeresque Roomisode 1: Behind the Dangerdesque is an old-school adventure game from Videlectrix that puts you in charge of Dangeresque, the detective alter-ego of Strong Bad from HomestarRunner.com.

The goal is to solve the unsolved murder case that Dangeresque said he solved months ago without leaving the room, because otherwise the chief will catch on to Dangeresque’s plan and throw him in jail. To reach that goal, you must WASD your way around the room and click on any objects of interest to talk to, look at, or use them towards the goal of solving three different missions as outlined in the case file.

As with anything Strong Bad, half the fun is just reading the words that come out of his mouth, and this game doesn’t disappoint, so though it might be a little on the short side, you’ll definitely get your money’s worth.

…It’s Website Wednesday: Homestar Runner?

Homestar Runner

Homestar Runner is a classic already, but if you haven’t yet seen it, today is the day (you needed a new Internet addiction anyways, right?). Based around an ever growing collection of Flash cartoons, the site features a myriad of characters and a variety of styles, including Strong Bad’s emails, Homestar Runner, the Teen Girl Squad, games, and more. Usually the stories involve “absurd humor with references to 1980s and 1990s pop culture, notably video games, classic television and popular music”, with a definite emphasis on the absurd. It took a few viewings for me to really get into it and start to understand the humor, but it was definitely worth every minute. The site is filled with so many quotables, you’re going to need to abandon all hope of ever talking the same way again after you enter. It’s worth it though, because once you go Homestar, you never go back. It’s dot com.
