August 20

New Update and New Languages Available

Hello Everyone,

A new update for SPY Fox in: Dry Cereal is now available which contains the following:

  • I have updated ScummVM from 1.6.0 to 1.7.0 across Windows, OS X and GNU/Linux.
  • opengl_nearest is the new display renderer. This provides really sharp looking graphics and also ensures 100% Steam Overlay functionality for Windows. It runs at your monitors current resolution.
  • I have completely re-written the shell launcher for GNU/Linux and implemented a new libraries system. This should allow for many more users of GNU/Linux to play the game and not just people on the latest versions of Ubuntu and Mint.
  • The Modern ScummVM skin now works on GNU/Linux. You can access the ScummVM menu by pressing CTRL+F5 (or Fn+F5 for Mac OS X) at any time.
  • ScummVM source code has been updated to 1.7.0. SDL source code is now included.

Also, I'd like to officially announce that the game is now availabe in French (Français), German (Deutsch) and Dutch (Nederlands) and the languages are free for all customers.

The UK_Version branch has also received these updates and languages. You can still access the UK Version of the game by going into the game's properties and, in the Betas tab, choosing the "uk_version" branch.

Enjoy the update and thank you for playing :)

The best part of this simple point-and-click adventure is the witty dialogue. It's a game for children, but so much of the dialogue is surprisingly sophisticated with puns galore. You have to save the world's milk supply from a goat named William the Kid. You are transported onto the Island of Acidophilus. You have to enlist the help of a cow named Howard Hugh Heifer. And the puns go on.

Within the game, you have to use specific spy gadgets or items at specific points in the story. And the story actually changes somewaht on subsequent playthroughs, which is neat. It's all so light-hearted that I can't help but feel like a kid while playing the game.

Let's get one thing out of the way before I continue; if you have any prior interest in Spy Fox, it's because you played these games as a kid. If you're playing these without any kind of nostalgic background, you won't have the same experience.

That said, however, the first installment in the Spy Fox series seems to disprove the notion that nostalgia is a crap-covered filter. Yes, it's still a kids' game at heart, but it's doused in a comic book art style and brimming with amusing one-liners and real-world references; the majority of which flew right over my head as a kid. Humongous made kids' games that had some damn good writing, and Spy Fox: Dry Cereal is a prime example. It never wanders into subtle adult references the way Pixar does, but the cultural references got many a chuckle out of me.

If anything, the game is too-filled with good writing. The titular character is suave, and his brand of humor is dry as a desert, but he has a habit of delivering one-liners any time he enters or prepares to leave an area. The writing itself never gets grating, but having the game hampered down by dialogue so often, especially when backtracking, can get annoying at times. Also potentially annoying are the puzzles. Most of them, I remembered from playing the game as a kid.

The solutions are by no means Monkey-Island level of crazy, and you won't be doing pixel-hunting, but your hand is never really held as you progress You space out during a cutscene and you've got to do a bit of memory recall. Not to mention, I have no idea how a kid could figure out some of these puzzles.

However, these are minor complaints. Spy Fox isn't a "hard game", and even if it slows down every so often to deliver oddly-choreographed dialogue, you're not going to grow increasingly impatient with it. The art style is fun, the writing is mature yet still kid-friendly, and the game's collective parody of spy culture is refreshing and appreciated. Heck, even if you didn't play this as a kid, it's still worth a shot.

The first PC game I owned, and the one I played the most as a kid on the family computer. I was overjoyed to see that the Humongous Entertainment games we're released on steam, and immediately bought the few I could remember playing. This game is built upon nothing but James Bond references and parodies, and in saying that, it still has a great feel. The game changes each time you play it, and on a lonely day, I played through it some 7 times in a row, and I was still getting unique combinations of four or five different puzzles. As games stand today, I don't know if it would hold up comparatively to AAA point and click adventure games, like the Walking Dead Game, but it is a good game. (or I'm a crazy shell of a person, bending solely on the whim of nostalgia)

This game brings back so many good memories!! Go Fish Mr. Fox.... Thank you steam for putting this game back up!!
The game runs well, and I can appreciate the game in a new way at an older age and catching all the humor I missed as a kid. Dry Cereal is still as awesome and legendary as I remember it!

If you played this game as a kid, you won't regret replaying it as an adult. The writing and voice work are excellent, the art and animation are great (despite the low resolution) - for a kid's game at its time it was way ahead of the game. You'll see how much you missed as a kid (the PUNS, the REFERENCES, and the JUST PLAIN FUNNY STUFF THAT YOU DIDN'T GET BECAUSE OF UNDERDEVELOPED VOCABULARY). This game is awesome and hilarious. I think I'm enjoying it more, in fact, than I did as a child. I'm clicking on everything, because I want to hear every piece of dialogue (there are about three witty phrases for everything you click on). Also, the story changes every time you replay, into three(?) randomized configurations, AND they just made the UK version available to everyone (which I hear is just as funny, if not funnier, than the US version). Replayability is sky-rocketting.
Just buy it. Play it. And don't reconsider the purchase until then. Like I said, you don't be disappointed.

The game of ultimate nostalgia.

Spy Fox is a great game and only takes a couple hours (at most) to beat. It's so awesome to be able to replay a game that I used to play when I was a child. A wonderful blast-to-the-past game that you can play in your free time. C:

Also, you're a fox in a SUIT, who gets to play GoFish with a giant pig, and dance the tango with a beautiful feline. How awesome is that?!

A great blast from the past. Very short by today's standards, and easier than I remembered (after all, it's geared to children), but the humor, nostalgia and fun factors are super-high. Now if only LucasArts would reissue their classic point-and-click games!
