Reviews

“Originality and deeper meanings are a rarity in today’s gaming industry. These two features and a pleasant pixel-based artstyle were more than enough to earn the game our seal of approval! For less than what you’d spend on a cup of coffee, you can get plenty of fun and live a unique experience that you’ll rarely ever find in another game!”
The Indie Toaster

“It may not be everybody’s cup of tea, but the dry British humor hits all the right notes here, with deft writing and a monotone delivery to the voice acting that so perfectly complements the absurdity of the plot with this nonchalant attitude as if what’s happening isn’t silly or at all out of the ordinary.”
VGBlogger

“With its delightful artwork and unique mockumentary presentation, it accomplishes more in an hour than many games do in eight. It's peculiar, engaging, heartbreaking, and an absolute blast to play.”
5/5 – Adventure Gamer

About This Game

"It's called Spontaneous Silly Head Syndrome and it affects fewer than 1 in 7 billion...."



Marlo was born with a curious case of Spontaneous Silly Head Syndrome, a rare disorder which makes the individual suffer temporary transformations. How does Marlo cope with such a condition, is there a cure?

Join Marlo in this one of a kind, narrative driven, mockumentary style adventure game. Learn about Marlo's life through compelling monologues, solve fun puzzles to help him overcome his odd condition and figure out just what the heck is happening to him!



The Mind of Marlo is best described as an absurd combination of TV show The Office and classic point and click adventure games of yore.
