I Have No Mouth, And I Must Scream #6 (Let’s Play)

With everyone’s story complete, Squiddy ventures onward to bring down AM, only she’s not certain she’s doing a very good job of it. Her characters keep dying and she’s uncertain if the ending she received were a happy one.

Enjoy the final episode of this series below.


I Have No Mouth, And I Must Scream #5 (Let’s Play)

Squiddy takes on the last of AM’s tortured souls, Tim: a veritable prince charming who’s no stranger to women. He’s trapped in a fairy tale scenario trying to save Ellen, the woman he adores, from her wicked stepmother jealous of her beauty.

I Have No Mouth, And I Must Scream #4 (Let’s Play)

Squiddy expected to have gone round 2 with Benny, but forgot to save at the character selection screen, so she reloaded and managed to succeed. She moved right along into Nimdok’s quest doing much better with him than she did with Benny. The end looms ever closer with just one character remaining. Honestly, though, things don’t look good for everyone. They’re all trapped and being tortured in cages.

Check out the end of Benny’s quest and what Nimdok endures below.

I Have No Mouth, And I Must Scream #3 (Let’s Play)

Thulhuween continues with Squiddy returning to trying to scream without a mouth. She moves onto the third victim, Benny, a perpetually hungry gorilla of a guy that seems to have done some bad things in his past. Unfortunately, things don’t go very well for Benny and she’ll have to have another go it.

Enjoy this attempt below.

I Have No Mouth, And I Must Scream #2 (Let’s Play)

Squiddy Guu moves onto Ellen who has quite the phobia for yellow things. It’s so extreme it paralyses, sickens, otherwise hinders, ¬†and drives Squiddy crazy. She also isn’t too keen on all the yellow, either. It’s so prevalent and ugly. Things become clear when Ellen must confront that which is the cause of her fears.

Take a gander below to watch Squiddy complete Ellen’s story in part to of I Have No Mouth, And I Must Scream.

I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream (Let’s Play) #1

In 1968, Harlan Ellison won a Hugo Award for his story of the same name published in March 1967’s issue of IF: Worlds of Science Fiction. In 1995 it turned into a game published by Cyberdreams.

The backdrop of the game is a sort of dystopian cyberpunk hell controlled by an evil computer named AM who had destroyed all of humanity save five people. He’s kept these people alive to torture and been doing so for over 100 years. His twisted goals are nothing more than to crush your spirit and playing the game, you must prove you’re better.

You must play each of the five characters and go through their hell trying rise above everything AM throws at you.
