New Update and New Languages Available

Hello Everyone,

A new update for Freddi Fish 2 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), Dutch (Nederlands) and Russian (Русский) and the languages are free for all customers.

Enjoy the update and thank you for playing :)

Reviews

“Freddi Fish is funtabulous! The folks at Humongous Entertainment certainly know their stuff. I would love to meet the people who created such an engagingly silly universe.”
95 – Electric Playground

“After a short opening movie, the second adventure of Freddi Fish starts. This time Freddi and her friend Luther go to school. But - and altogether very fortunately, it's not going to be the usual teaching routine.”
92 – Coming Soon Magazine

“Not only is this one an entertaining game, but also it demands to be replayed over and over as some of the quest items are randomly placed and some of the essential pieces of the trap device will change from game to game thus presenting different problems to solve.”
90 – Quandary

About This Game

So who is haunting the schoolhouse, taking the toys and practically scaring the scales off all the guppies?

Good thing super-sleuths Freddi Fish and Luther are on the case. Their plan: build a trap to capture and expose the phony ghost. To reach their goal the two friends need your child's help to find a few things-and the list of items changes every time they play. Kids will dive right in to direct this undersea mystery filled with old friends, new faces and a festive sing-along soundtrack.

  • Like the real world, Freddi Fish's world changes every time you play.
  • Search through fascinating places like a submarine, a ship or Atlantis.
  • Out of time? You can save the game and finish it later.
  • Take breaks with Freddi Fish: play games like Crab Invaders, solve puzzles, draw pictures or just sing songs.

I can quite honestly say that this is the best game I have ever played.

Everything about it feels so refined and perfect, from the stunningly beautiful songs that the characters (may I mention that Ray, the (most likely) s** offender manta ray is the greatest character in gaming by the way) sing to the emotional rollercoaster that is the plot. Some moments (like the ones with the ghost) are so spooky that I couldn't keep up with all the extra washing up liquid I needed to clean up all the mess I'd made in my underpants so I had to resort to selling my body but I couldn't keep up with my debts and all of my things were reposessed so now I'm homeless with almost no food or water struggling to stay alive another day.

Fantastic for the kids.

This game took me about 40 minuits to finish!
ofcorse this game was made for kids and i think that this game is great if you are going to buy it for your kids.
although id recomend to buy all the freddi fish games since they are short and kind of repetetive.

i recomend the game for the ages around 6-10

if you are older and want a point and click game, this is not for you, since you'd beat it almost instantly

During the late 90’s/early 2000’s Humongous Entertainment released an absolutely fantastic stream of “edutainment” point and click adventures for children. These titles focus on a range of light academics including basic geography, basic to upper elementary level mathematics, logical thinking, critical thinking and puzzle solving, topped off with reinforcement of good manners and polite social etiquette. At the lower end of the age spectrum, they may require some adult supervision and supportive guidance, but there is no better series of games for a child’s first venture into PC gaming.

I played the Haunted Schoolhouse right after finishing the Kelp Seed adventure and I remember not being okay with the whole “Haunted” part. Between the already scary sharks, and then some sort of paranormal activity in an elementary school, I remember that this game really frightened me at first. I think it was almost a year before I went back and actually really enjoyed it. It is by no means inappropriate, but I would recommend some supervision at first until you see how your child reacts to some of the opening scenes and concepts.

A modern classic, Freddi Fish 2: The Case of the Haunted Schoolhouse is a clever (albeit blatant) satire on the McCarthyism era in United States history. Although I found it to be quite monotonous in storytelling, the character development and dialogue was some of the best we've seen this decade. If you're looking for a real work of art, Freddi Fish 2: The Case of the Haunted Schoolhouse is for you.

Arguably the definitive game of a generation, it blends post-modern philosophical themes with beautiful storytelling to create a game that will be revered for decades to come. Few games have dared to stray into the territory that Freddi Fish 2: The Case of the Haunted Schoolhouse does. It was revolutionary in its time for its allegory of the Book of Job from the Bible. Along with Put-Put, Freddi Fish will always have a prominent place in the halls of American literature.
