The Punny Adventures of Nick Bounty
January 29, 2006 7:12 PM   Subscribe

A Case of the Crabs, and its sequel, The Goat in the Grey Fedora, are a couple of point-and-click black-and-white Flash games that parody the old Sam Spade-type noir films. You are Nick Bounty, private detective, and it's up to you to solve the mysteries of the counterfeit crabs and the miniature goat statue, respectively. Very, very jokey; guaranteed to induce eyerolling. Look at everything, talk to everyone, and pick up everything that's not nailed down. Hints are available, but they're crammed with jokes too.

As a friend of the actor providing the voice of Nick Bounty, I'm quite happy to see this turn up on MeFi! These games really bring me back to the old Sierra point-and-click adventure game days... Ahhh, Space Quest...

Oh, and by the way, I'm a MetaLurker de-lurking for the first time. Don't hurt me. Please. Heh.

A Case of the Crabs was fantastic. I can't wait to play the other one. Thanks.
