Description

Seamus O'Mally, the stupidest living Irishman, reads an article on a tabloid where the English degrade Ireland. He decides to find an Englishman more thick than himself to prove his homeland intellectual superiority.

The Eire Raising Adventures of Seamus O'Mally is a freeware point-and-click adventure game. The right side of the screen is occupied by an icon bar with all the verbs: an eye for "look", a hand with an upwards arrow for "take", a hand with a downwards arrow for "drop", a hand holding a hammer for "use", a mouth for "talk", a door for "open" and two buttons for saving and loading the game. Below this bar at the bottom of the screen sits a compass, used to control the movements of Seamus. Also at the bottom are the inventory and text output windows.

Trivia

Controversy

This game actually was a tad controversial and many of the British PC magazines would not review it because it was based on the Irish stereotype of being a tad thick. The plot is simplistic in that he has to get to England and find an Englishman thicker than him in order to set the record straight and thus the game pokes more fun out of the English as was always the intention.

Development

The game originally came on six disks but F1 refused to publish it unless it was squeezed on to four. Sadly it meant cutting bits out. The game took over three years of Arron Hawke's spare time to complete.

Reception

Strangely the game seemed to do better in Belgium than anywhere else, maybe the Poirot streak in them that they love a detective game.
