Set in Wild West, FESTER MUDD: CURSE OF THE GOLD is a three-part comic saga of exploration, reunion, and redemption...and a love letter to the classic adventure games of the 90s!

Roused from a life of sloth to reunite with his long-lost brother in search of unimaginable riches, reluctant hero Fester Mudd somehow manages to be intrepid but cowardly, ambitious yet lazy, dimwitted but brilliant.

In Episode 1, Fester hits the trail to join his brother, Bud, in the downtrodden town of Loamsmouth. But when Bud is found to have mysteriously vanished, Fester realizes that the journey will be far longer and more treacherous than he bargained for...and he must enlist the aid of an experienced gunslinger to help him make his way through Indian territory to track down both his missing brother and the gold that awaits them both!

But gunslingers don't come cheap...and Fester must find a way to convince him to join him on the perilous quest.

This Episode sees Fester exploring Loamsmouth and surrounding territories. Along the way, he'll meet and deal with an assortment of Old West roughnecks, flim-flammers, and other larger-than-life characters...and give adventure game fans a huge blast from the past!

Missing the classic adventure games of the early 1990s like Maniac Mansion, Indiana Jones, Monkey Island, or dozens like them? Want to see the genre that inspired games like the fantastic, story-driven Telltale Games adventures? Just want to play a fun little storyline that requires a little puzzling to work your way through?

Fester Mudd: Curse of the Gold is an episodic Wild West adventure that does homage to those old Lucas Arts SCUMM games without the need for a floppy disk drive or emulator. Everything is there, from the user interface to the 16-bit graphics. The only thing missing is the Lucas Arts logo.

The story isn't terribly deep but it's fun to play and leaves you ready for the subsequent episodes, which unfortunately haven't come to Steam in the year plus since Episode 1's release. The puzzles involve simple character dialogue and finding out which objects are interactive and how they can be used to interact with other objects. Throw in a few fart jokes and some butt-related humor and you've got the ingredients for success!

Except for the fact that this story ends with a "to be continued" that has yet to actually continue (at least on Steam), Fester Mudd is still worth playing. I do think that the price tag, at $10, is pretty high for the 2-3 hours of content and lack of replayability and suggest you look for this one on sale.

What's the difference between this game and "Day of the Tentacle", "Monkey Island", "Full Throttle", etc... ?

The Lucasarts logo.

I have a love-hate relationship with Adventure / Point & Click games. I like them but most of them suffer from terrible writing, terrible gameplay and/or terrible graphics and in all honesty, Fester Mudd doesn't fail at either.

The writing is superb. Yes, it's an episodic game but the story is well-written enough to interest me in the next episode. Likewise, writing for "western" era can be hard but I feel the devs really pulled it off nicely.
The gameplay is perfect. I rage fairly quickly at stupid gameplay elements (including but not restricted to, clunky UI, unskippable text, unskippable tedious cutscenes, etc...) and I can proudly say nothing made me rage in fester Mudd.
The graphics are top-notch for a retro-style / pixel art point & click adventure.

TL;DR 11/10, would bang.

Pretty enjoyable point and click adventure game, but far from worth $10. You can finish the whole game in under two hours. If you can pick it up on a very big sale, it was kind of fun if you want a simple western themed Maniac Mansion throwback

3hr pure monkey island experience
good puzzles, amazing graphics, and a good amount of funny dialogue and characters
pure scumm point and click menu, without object highlighting, they way it is supposed to be

i hope i can play the whole game, if it gets released

7/10, because it is fairly short

Solid adventure and short gameplay but decent comedy western. Most of the puzzles make sense and the humor is great. An entertaining point-and-click-adventure experience. It's an excellent tribute to the former giants of the adventure game industry.

Game : 7.5/10

Pretty enjoyable throwback to the LucasArts Era of Adventure Games and much better than expected. However, it is quiet short and it is unlikely that the other episodes will ever be developed and released. That is unfortunate especially since the episodes are not self contained stories, so this is more like a great appetizer to a delicious main menu that is never to arrive. I got it for a few cents so I can't complain, but I would not recommend it at it's current price because of the short length and the lack of a future. Just get it if it pops up in a bundle you're interested in and try it out then and you might be pleasently surprised.

A quite charming point and click game with fairly good puzzles and the usual "silly adventure game"-logic so expect quite odd solutions. The jokes and references are mostly good but some fall a bit flat but thats quite hard to avoid.

There are a few missable achievements in the game but you will encounter most of them by exploring the game and reading the achievement descriptions for hints (quite hint free).

Time to 100%: ~2 hours

This is an awesome little retro game. The puzzles are complicated enough to be entertaining but easy enough to not put a serious dent on your afternoon. There are many entertaining in-jokes that harken back to the 80s and 90s. I think old-school adventure gamers will likely be the ones who appreciate this game the most, but it is suitable for new players too.

Short and slightly funny. The humor doesn't get much deeper than fart jokes. It happens I actually find those a bit hilarious...

An easy clear too if you are one of those without much time to invest in gaming and huge, towering backlogs.

Good homage to the old PC adventure classics too, I felt right back at home with the interface.

An enjoyable take on the point-and-click-then-point-and-click-again adventure games from the golden ages when LucasArts and Sierra made their classics. Expect plenty of slapstick humor, retro styled graphics, crude sound effects, 8-bit tunes and a very short gameplay experience (episode one of three come).

I would not recommend purchasing this at the current full price of $10, since you can run through it in an hour or so, but definitely pick it up on sale or off a bundle. Nostalgia filled sighs and giggles are guaranteed. 4/5

When Fester Shinetop visits Bumpusville, he plays this game and enjoys it thoroughly.
The journey is quite short, but it's a very entertaining journey.

Funny game, good way to spend 2-3 hours when you're bored. Can't wait for the second episode! :D Though I don't think it's worth €9, as it doesn't last very long, but still fun nonetheless.

Very nice classic style adventure. Really funny but... it´s very very easy and short to medium-advanced adventure players. It would have been better to put a price 5€ max... ¿three episodes = 27€? Maybe too expensive.

Honestly I had fun playing it. The game was good, it felt like I was playing classic Sierra adventure game, the gameplay so far was enjoyable, the dialogue was well written. Warning Extremely( I mean "EXTREMELY") short game that basically leaves you on a cliffhanger. I guess its a given since its only episode 1.
Is it 9.99 worth of fun? Probably not. If your going to pony up the money think of it as a donation and hope for more episodes in the future. When compared to early point and click games this game feels more like a demo.

So I Recommend this game, but with a caution. This game is demo short. Buy it on sale or think of it as a donation because likely your not going to get your bang for your buck.

From what I can see in the Forum likely this game will never be truly complete
