Review of Oz Orwell and the Crawling Chaos by Devilfish

Stars - 50

Rating by Devilfish posted on Nov 9, 2012 | edit | delete

The review overstates the creepiness of this game somewhat.

This is the adventure game equivalent of the unintentionally hilarious B-rated horror movie, and it’s just wonderful. It starts out creepy enough, then somehow gets its wires crossed and ends up encompassing the entire spectrum of horror cheese. Watch for cameos by the Roswell Greys, your standard mad scientist, Great Cthulhu and the gruff detective with six months left to retirement (spoiler: he doesn’t make it). The ending is just delightful.

Orchestra sting!

Oz himself (he’s not gay!) doesn’t help matters. Deadpan wisecracking protagonists do of course have their place in adventure games. This is not that game.

That’s not to say this game isn’t outstanding. It is so outstanding.

Five stars.
