I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream out now on mobile
I completely missed the mid-90’s PC adventure game window. I was just a little too young, and didn’t have a PC good enough to run anything. So, when I hear about a classic PC adventure game getting re-released, my ears perk up. I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream is out now on Android and iOS. The game has previously been adapted for Steam.
IHNMAIMS, originally developed by The Dreamers Guild, is a 1995 PC game based on the short story of the same name, written by Harlon Ellison in 1967. The title is nearly as chilling as the premise. You play as one of the last five surviving humans in the world. The game takes place 109 years after AM, a supercomputer, wiped out humanity. AM has tasked the last surviving humans to withstand AM’s torture for the rest of their lives. Oh, and AM has made them immortal. AM really does not like humans. The game sounds utterly devastating, and delightful, in a masochistic kind of way.
DotEmu and Night Dive Studios have done the legwork to bring this PC game back to life. You can grab I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream right now on the Apple App Store, and Google Play for $3.99. If mobile isn’t your bag, you can grab it on Steam for $5.99.
