The Adventures of Problem Sleuth

Courtesy of Sinosplice, I need give props to MS Paint Adventures, which is best described as Choose Your Own Adventure crossed with Toothpaste for Dinner. MS Paint Adventures follows (more or less) Problem Sleuth, a wannabe hard-boiled private detective, annoyed by his neighbors and seemingly trapped in his own office.

MS Paint Adventures is inspired by Infocom games, and the faux-interface reminds me especially of Return to Zork. But the “game” is strictly linear, with only one option per frame. Check it out!

  1. Glad you like it!

    There are actually a few places where you have a choice. But very few! The other (non-PS) adventures offer more choices, I hear.

  2. LOL! I just got to one of the “choices”

    The consequences:

    The window loses it’s extra-dimensional portal properties, and severs you mid-way through. You are dead.

    <- Go back.

    Very funny!

  3. Heh, yeah, the choices are few and far between. And when you do have a choice, the second one seems to always be, “no wait, don’t do that.”
