Episode One: Prairie Dogging is a Flash game that answers the question, "What if BioShock had been developed in the style of an old-school 2D adventure game?" By Jeremy Scott, creator of the Hsu and Chan comic strip. posted by jbickers (11 comments total) 4 users marked this as a favorite

 
(I suppose I ought to mention that it does spoil parts of the original game's plot, so if Bioshock's still on your to-do list, might give this a pass for now.)

That is the worst adventure game interface ever made. It's like he never played one before.

There has never been a game made that I would not rather play as a 2D adventure than as a first-person shooter. After he's done with Bioshock, do you suppose we can get him to adapt Portal?

Done and done.

Prairie dogging means something completely different to me.

I'm pretty sure it was intentional, Splunge. Hence the plunger joke.

Anyway, I guess it was an entertaining 10 minutes.

Horrendous interface, but still fun. :)

Great dialog, makes me miss Sam & Max. Thanks for posting this.

Cute! Reminds me a little of the original Sam & Max - a little. Anyone have an opinion on the new episodic version?
