Whatever the reason, be it the sense of the unknown, the dulling of the sense we tend to rely on most, or some other more inherent instinct, at some point we've probably all shared a fear of the dark and what might be lurking in it. My solution to this was pulling the covers over my head and sleeping with the lights on, but I suppose I didn't have a surreal world living in my closet like Pajama Sam so I couldn't very well head out and attempt to capture darkness in my lunchbox.
Pajama Sam: No Need to Hide When It's Dark Outside is the blanket garbed, flashlight wielding protagonist's debut and one of the few Humongous games I never got a chance to play as a kid. And that's a bit of a shame as it might possibly be the best written, most logical and entertaining series the studio put out in their edutainment boom.
Characters are lively and over the top, with clever writing and a lighthearted sense of humor that makes them delightful to interact with. The twisting art is somewhere between a haunted house and an Escher painting and still looks fantastic even with the original low resolution, clearly distinguishing between items you can pickup and packing a lot of charming little touches into almost every nook and cranny.
This certainly isn't the most challenging (or possessing any challenge whatsoever for that matter), but its simple puzzles are no less fun to solve and helping Sam and his friends overcome their feels is all kinds of heartwarming. Perhaps I'm simply biased toward all of Humongous's catalog, even those I never played, but whatever the case the hour or so I spent with NNtHWIDO (oof, that's some acronym) was a rather surprisingly entertaining bit of breezy adventure gaming, and I'm now eager to see what Sam's future endeavors have to offer.
