Adventure Game Scene of the Day — Monday 20 January 2014
Graphics aren’t really all that important to me but something about Escape from Delirium (1995) really rubs me the wrong way. The game is just really ugly to me and I’m not sure why it bothers me because I’ve played a lot of ugly games before without any issue. The interface is particularly dreadful looking.
Anyway, the story is completely nonsensical and it isn’t because of the poor English translation. In fact, you’d be better off just downloading some of the better rated freeware AGS games. Most of them are better than this.
Ugh, I agree with the “ugly” part.

Sure, this game brings “ugly” to a whole new level (never reached before).
On the bright side(?), EfD features Saddam Hussein (or his lookalike), whose screenshot has been used in many quizzes.
The human race is doomed to progress.
I don’t know, I thought the graphics are not without its “charm” - it’s like a messy Monkey Island.

I thought that “the airplane wing that goes right through the streetlight” is the most iconic EFD image:
and the plane crash.
