"An extremely profane and hugely funny take on those 90s LucasArts point and click adventures, full of love and joy for the whole genre."

Reviews

one of the most outrageous games I've ever played and for that alone I love it.
- PC Zone – 90%

Funnier than any game in years, and delightfully rude. Point-and-click adventuring done right for a change.
- PC Gamer – 87%

pitch perfect comedy writing…they truly understand how to exploit the genre’s strengths… an indie masterpiece.
-Wired

...excellent scripting, consistent, cartoony design and delight in overtly, overly referential absurdity…even the Telltale titles are clunky and formulaic compared to the anarchistic invention of games like this...
-Eurogamer.net — 9/10

Two little adventures games that any fan of the point&click genre will surely enjoy. Lots of cleverly designed puzzles, and enough jokes to make you laugh for a good while.

These are some of the funniest games i've ever played. Unfortunately they are criminally underrated, and should be considered among the best in the adventure point and click genre.

Just get them!

If you don't like point and click adventures, you won't like this. If this is among your first point and click adventures, you won't understand or appreciate this game. Play a few others first. At the very least, play the Monkey Island series first.

These two games contain two types of humor: absurd, potty humor and jokes that poke fun at point and click game design and the thought process of players. Some of my favorite moments in the game happen when Ben and Dan bicker about picking up random objects or trying to combine two very different inventory items. Ben and Dan frequently break character to talk about the merits and downfalls of the genre. They are aware that they are living in an adventure game world. I view these games as commentary on point and clicks first and a ridiculous tale about time travel, aliens, and Hitler second. The art style feels intentional rather than amateur. One of my favorite aspects of adventure games is the wide variety of art styles, so the graphics here don't bother me at all.

That said, I think that the first game (Ben There, Dan That) is slightly stronger because its jokes don't stoop to the same level of disgustingness as its sequel. Some of the sequel's jokes nearly cross the line and seem to exist for the shock value. I appreciate the humor more when it's better integrated with the point and click meta commentary. There are also a few puzzles which, while funny, aren't very intuitive. Especially in the sequel, you'll be asking yourself "What's my overall goal again...?"

I'd rate both games 4/5. I enjoyed them because I enjoy point and clicks. And when I play other adventure games in the future, I have no doubt that Ben and Dan will be in my mind cracking jokes about the silly inventory items I try to combine out of desperation.

Probably my favorite point-and-click, Time etc + Ben etc has great environments, witty dialogue and a silly storyline. Hugely underrated, and it goes to like £0.10 in the sales. Definitely worth that, and I'd say it's worth a fair bit more than what the full price is.
Get it.

This is a review of Time Gentlemen, Please! the second game in this bundle,

If you managed to sit through the first one, which does require a bit of patience and a specific style of humour then you'll like this more, even though the humour is darker than the first so it requires an even more specialized audience, but if you're in that group this is the perfect game
