Devo Presents: Adventures of the Smart Patrol

Moby ID: 4760

Description

Adventures of the smart patrol is a game basically inspired by the late seventies/early eighties alternative band Devo, and which takes us to a world based on every little thing that is Devo. You control a Monkees-style group of musicians called the Smart Patrol who take it upon themselves to stop the mad schemes of the evil mutant "Turkey Monkey" who wants to unleash a virus all over Spudland. Gameplay consists of a myst-like game of "slideshows" but without puzzles to solve, most of the game progresses through dialogue and interaction, so you mission really consists of talking to the right person at the right times.

The game features digitized actors as well as multiple endings plus, of course, millions of Devo-related jokes, characters etc.

Trivia

Devo

Devo themselves appear in a cameo on the game. They are the old guys found ranting on the asylum. The game also includes a brand new song by the band, which you see performed (bah, lipsynched) by the Smart Patrol.
