Best game for children,

I love this game, I love this series, I love everything Humongous has on steam.

Pajama Sam is the best role model, he's everything you want to be.

I'm almost 22 years old and I will always love Pajama Sam.

I was lost, and now I am found. I was blind, but now I can see. I was in the darkest place in my life. I didn't know where to turn. I thought, "what is the point of life?" Then my friend gifted me Pajama Sam. This game saved my life. Pajama Sam was the hero I was looking for. He pulled me out of my darkness by telling me that I did not need to fear it. If you are struggling in life, pick up this masterpiece of a game. Let Pajama Sam be the hero in your life, and bring you out of your darkness. God bless Pajama Sam.

Pajama Sam, what a classic nostalgic point and click game I remember playing a lot back in my youth. And funny seeing as how this kid is a fan of some comic book hero who goes around fighting crime, in his pajamas. As story wise, it's the classic, overcoming your fear of the darkness story. Sam, or Pajama Sam as he calls himself, travels to the Land of Darkness only to loose his stuff that he needs to fight Darkness. Now he needs to find them with the help of a western minecart named The King and a peter lory sounding boat named Auto. It was fun going back to this, everything is how I remembered. I only had one problem where I clicked on somthing and the animation wouldn't stop and I was stuck so I had to reset, too bad there ain't no save feature but then again it's a short game. So yeah, I was happy in seeing this game on Steam and was able to re-live part of my childhood, clicking on almost everything to make weird stuff happen, collecting socks, solving puzzles and of course a good ol fashion game of Cheese and Crackers.
