Heads up on a really cool game I found.
You might want to try out "The Apprentice". It is for computers & is a classical themed Adventure game. The subtle humor reminds me a bit of Monkey Island in a strange way. Currently there are 2 games in the series with a 3rd one being made. Both games are also free might I add. The first game is voiced (If you get the deluxe edition.. which I highly recommend), while the second isn't (which is really disappointing considering how well the game is voiced).
Here is a link. http://www.herculeaneffort.com/index.php?page=games

"Apprentice II is an excellent sequel to an excellent first game, that builds in every way on its predecessor - it's wider in scope and scale, with more characters, locations and puzzles." - Berian Williams, Adventuregamers.com
"...if you played the first part of the series, you know that you can expect top quality independent gaming: a very deep story, great character development, the best graphics the low-resolution AGS setting has to offer and a very unique sense of humor." - Jozef Purdes, DIY Games
