The demo gives you a great appreciation for this gem of a game. You'll end up sucked into buying this one - I bet. It's arcade with an easy to play interface and loaded with charm. If anyone searches back in their memories - they will recall the desire to be real big and stomp around the place. laugh

OK - we have switched pre-fixes ehh.

They took away her hard drive and she felt defiled.

Then they plugged her into the Matrix and she became re-animated. laugh

Hmm. Before I can find the first puzzle or engage in interaction or dialogue with any other characters a giant monster walks around, falls over and it says The End.

Is the story complex and engaging enough on an intellectual and emotional level once you find other locations and people?

Well this game engages and stimulates by reducing all negotiations, challenges and conundrums to their most basic form - the desire to communicate effectively and completely.

Atomic Mutant reduces all jargon, cant and chat to a moment of pure emotional clarity. I squish you - therefore I am. laugh

I thought you were joking Randwill. oops smile

To me Atomic Mutant is a great time killer game that I keep on my hard drive - like Bejeweled - but so much funnier and in it's own deliciously warped way engaging. It's a tribute to all the Sci Fi B Movies from the 50's and 60's.

It's not a shooter - more like a first person very simple arcade type game with lots of unusual charm. It is one of the strangest and most fun diversionary games I have played. You are the giant mutant, you can watch through your eyes or through cinema scope with all the people in the movie theatre or drive in audience. It is pure silly fun. laugh

Didn't intend to make light of your question - I assumed you knew about the game.

Oh, I WAS being silly. And I love the old B movie graphics surrounding the game. It's just not what I usually enjoy playing, nor what I usualy see discussed here.

Well, I'm off to contemplate quite settings with strange mechanical devices that need to be figured out and manipulated. No rush. Take aaaalll the time you need...

I love pure adventure games, games that let you stroll and explore. Things to see, doors to peek behind - all those wonderful times.

But to me it's a lot like my reading habits. I have all the classics and greats. Most days I want to revel in time spent with Dickens, F.Scott or Hesse. But some days I choose to sit on the porch with a stack of comics, a hostess cupcake and an ice cold Dr. Pepper. All are pure pleasure. smile

Laura, variety is certainly the spice of life and I also like to mix up my games and play different kinds every now and then. I'm now the proud owner of a fledgling atomic mutant. With a little love, patience and hands on learning he will grown to be a great big human crushing mutant.

You know, I'm just as surprised as any of you to find this game being discussed here. I will say, I've felt very welcome, thank you.
Funny thing is, we did want to have a story as part of what we were doing...budget and time again....over at Canopy we're a lot of storyteller/filmmaker types who have a lot of love for the adventure genre. Would love to make a game like that someday.
For now, I don't think that Reptomicus would do very well with figuring out strange mechanical devices. Or, wait, he'd just smash them. Some adventure.

They took away his opposable thumb and he became . . . . fruit-a-licious!!

When they took away the King's toilet he was ... dethrowned.
