“Playing this game was truly taking a step back to the golden age of adventure.”
Just Adventure

“Every interaction I had was interesting, believable, and could’ve easily fit in a slightly more serious Monty Python sketch.”

“I fell in love with The Beard in the Mirror. As an homage to a much-loved genre, it succeeds stupendously.”

About This Game

"Don't you remember me? After all we've been through..."

What do you want to be when you grow up? Paul thought his life would be set after college, but at 22 he's toiling away in a job he doesn't like and coming home to an empty apartment every night. He doesn't know who he is, where he's going, or how he fits into his world.

But then on one dark and stormy night, a mysterious woman appears to him, and everything changes...

The Beard in the Mirror is a throwback to when adventure games came in giant cardboard boxes and if you didn't have the hintbook, that was it; you were stuck on that puzzle for the rest of your life. It's a labor of love from a husband-and-wife team from two different worlds (she’s a Sierra fangirl, and he’s a LucasArts diehard) who have been working on it together since before they even started dating.
