Wow, Boogle. It looks brown and soft and it smells terrible. We’ve just got to get some of that!

Annotated playthrough of Torin's Passage. There are 12 videos so far. See also: Ways to die in the game, including the easter egg message you got if you made a hilarious but stupid choice at the end.

Tehanu, I am now 10 years old and dying in every possible way. Thanks.

The pay-off at the end was worth it. You gotta wonder who'd do that, but then, you probably have to wonder more about who would anticipate someone else doing that.

Apparently there is a whole genre of playthrough videos for old adventure games and a whole subgenre of 'ways to die' videos for the same games. I had no idea.

wow, did he have to annotate it with stupid jokes? christ, it's like reading a gamefaq for fun.

The jokes in the prologue and flashbacks are pretty bad. I think it's quite funny during the gameplay, though.

That "Ways to die" video was awesome.

Link #3 has a bandwidth exceeded message. This must be our day for destroying websites.

The final segment in the "Ways to die" video is fantastic.

Sadly, I'm pretty sure I've died every way depicted except the glorious crowning moment of poor judgment at the end. It never even occurred to me to do that. I'm so disappointed in myself.

P.S. Sorry, Torin fan whose site this post has crashed. Your site is awesome btw.

I used to play this game at my grandparent's house in Beijing, China when I had nothing else to do. I loved it.

You might want to check out the Phantasmagoria 2 commented playthrough currently in progress at The Spoony Experiment if you like that kind of thing... his Terror T.R.A.X. sessions are also pretty cool.
