Description

Hurford Schlitzting cannot sleep through a storm one night and finds out he has been kidnapped in his own bedroom. He meets grumpy aliens with strange requests, is brainwashed by hypnotic music, hacks computers running Lookout Express, tries to overthrow the dictatorial reign of The Panel and has philosophical conversations with Random Access Memory. Something is definitely out of order.

In this humorous freeware 2D point and click adventure, which took three years to develop, you guide Hurford in his sleeping gown through about thirty hand-drawn rooms, with ingenious puzzles and a wacky storyline, as you try to find out how you ended up in a parallel world. Developer Tim Furnish made this game in his own scripting language SLUDGE, with 16-bit high resolution graphics. A complete music score and fitting sound effects have been included as well.

Trivia

The game was originally programmed as a BASIC text adventure called The Fantastic Adventures of Hurford Schlitzting, but never finished. Later, it was redesigned using PACkAGE (Point And ClicK Adventure Game Editor) for a final year computing project, but none of the available engines seemed appropriate, so Tim Furnish developed his own: SLUDGE (Scripting Language for Unhindered Development of a Gaming Environment).
