Humongous Entertainment

posted by The Highway on - last edited - Viewed by 347 users

I never knew until quite recently that Ron Gilbert helped create the Humongous Entertainment games, at least I think so...

My question to all you forum guys is this:
Best Humongous Entertainment Game?

A lot of you may not have played this. I grew up a little off the golden age of normal-adventure-games, but was right on target for the little-kids'-adventure-games boom.

So, come on, what one?

  • The only one I ever played was Freddie Fish Maze Madness, I absolutely adored it when I was younger :D

  • Yes, my second adventure game after the Neverhood was Freddy Fish and the Case of Missing kelps ... :)
    I played Putt Putt and that-bear-i-don't-remember-his-name too and I just, hated them.Ugh ...
    also in Freddy Fish I didn't like Freddy at all, he was so full of him-self, I like his friend, Luther, yeah I think that was his/her name.
    I never took the story seriously, little-kids story's were not my type, I felt the game as a Give-And-Get kind of game which I hated, we just travelled around to get that item to give it to someone else and it was just stupid to me, I just played the game for it's animation style and new ways to finish it (some puzzles changed each time) and I loved to find Easter eggs, in it :) they were so funny :)

  • @Lennie Melvin said: The only one I ever played was Freddie Fish Maze Madness, I absolutely adored it when I was younger :D

    Yeah, that's a good one.

    I personally prefer "Putt Putt Goes to the Moon", but really all of the Putt Putts were my favourites. But then again, Putt Putt is the ONLY one to have not been redone in some way after 2005...

    (Spy Fox on Wii, a new Freddie Fish & a new Pajama Sam)

  • I grew up on these as well. First games I ever had and I must have played them all :) Hard choice but Spy Fox was probably my favourite out of them all.

    EDIT: I still have some of these somewhere actually and I've kept all the Spy Foxes. Operation Ozone was probably my favourite.

  • Why Pajama Sam, of course!
    The first game "No need to hide when its dark outside" must have been my favorite HE game of all time. It is just pure genius.
    It has a great original story, a inventive surrealistic world to discover, and it's really funny!
    I mean, just take the first two lines of the game: "Deep in the bowels of an old power plant a sinister plot is hatching...", Darkness: "Haha! At last time has come to hatch my sinister plot!".
    I played it many times when I was a child (the dutch version, that is) and I got never bored of it. Yes, Pajama Sam is a winner for me! I guess it's just my type of dry humour.

    Oh and don't forget that Dave Grossman also worked on this title.

    I wouldn't say "redone" is the right word. The first Pajama Sam, Freddi Fish and Spy Fox games were ported over to the Wii, but they didn't change or add anything in those games as far as I'm aware. The last times those franchises had a proper new game was 2003 (Pajama Sam) and 2001 (Freddi Fish, Spy Fox).

  • Spy Fox 2 is pretty much what made me love Video Games, so yeah.

  • The only Humongous games I had were Freddi Fish 1 and 2, I'd say my favorite was 1.

  • Hey, people: Freddi Fish is a girl.

  • Well, now I was a teenager when all those games came but I played them because my aunt had them, and they were something to do while my parents were at work, but I'd have to say out of all of them, I like Pajama Sam, Put-Put, and Freddi the fish.
