If you enjoyed old Adventure titles that were either Sierra or Lucasarts, then you will love this game. Fester Mudd: Curse of the gold, which has been developed by ReplayGames, is a three-part comic saga of exploration, reunion, and redemption that brings the Old West to Life. This is a very well made Adventure with a great story, well designed artwork and characters, with full on comic value.  For only £6.99 on Desura, you can't go wrong!

In Episode 1, Fester hits the trail to join his brother, Bud, in the downtrodden town of Loamsmouth. But when Bud is found to have mysteriously vanished, Fester realizes that the journey will be far longer and more treacherous than he bargained for…and he must enlist the aid of an experienced gunslinger to help him make his way through Indian territory to track down both his missing brother and the gold that awaits them both! But gunslingers don’t come cheap…and Fester must find a way to convince him to join him on the perilous quest. This Episode sees Fester exploring Loamsmouth and surrounding territories. Along the way, he’ll meet and deal with an assortment of Old West roughnecks, flim-flammers, and other larger-than-life characters…and give adventure game fans a huge blast from the past!

System Availability : Windows, Mac, Linux, Mobile, iPhone, iPad, Android


  1. This game is so damn good and it totally blew me away!!
    It was actually BETTER than some of the lucas arts games (like say indiana jones and the last crusade, which is an ok game BUT waaay to tedious and HARD!). It has wonderful surroundings and Lovely pixelated artwork in a true oldschool way.
    The dialoges are superbly written and straight to the Point. It´s not always necessary to have loooong dialogs like say in Gabriel Knight. The game just flows so nicely and has a perfect pace and is medium hard.
    Accompanied by some smooth "western" Music that is calm and won´t make the player feel stressed.
    The only problem i have is that it is very short and leaves you begging for more!! I sincerely hope they will finnish the last 2 episodes of this wonderful game!!
    I give this game a solid 9/10.
    You will not be disappointed!

    Wow Max, that's brilliant to read! It's so nice to see feedback on our site for games that we've posted, especially positive feedback. Oh and I'm a huge Adventure fan myself :)

  3. I am so glad that i found this site :). I love adventure games! The story... it´s like wandering around in a movie. And you have to use youre brain to solve many puzzles, unlike many other games like fps where you just shot, and kill Everything you see.
    Keep up the good work on this site! And give us adventuregamers many more lovely and well thought out games!
    Cheers and game on!
