About the Game

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!

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

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

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.

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.
