Description

Monty Python's The Meaning of Life is loosely based on the Monty Python movie of the same name. The player must go through the seven stages of life (The Miracle of Birth, Growth and Learning, Fighting Each Other, Middle Age, Live Organ Transplants, The Autumn Years and Death), looking for hints and clues based on each particular phase of life in an attempt to understand life in general. Once they reach the grand finale, they will be able to live out their life in a cottage, and prove that they can take on the obstacles of life. Having completed these tasks, the player will be given the answer to the ultimate question: the question of life!

There are several scenes from the movie shown in-game as well as several sketches from the Monty Python’s Flying Circus television series, like The Spanish Inquisition.
