Best of Comedy

Recommendations by Cryptic Puffin

IF comes in many packages, from sci-fi to fantasy to surrealistic, but it's my opinion that the best of them all come in the form of comedies; is there anything better than adventuring and laughing at the same time? The correct answer would be no, therefore you must continue to scroll otherwise you will break logic and the fabric of the universe will follow.

Best. Game. Ever. (No, you are not allowed to contest this statement)

Indy parody? Great writing? Puzzles involving a rising level of deadly stomach acid?? Yes thank you much appreciated.

3. You Will Select a Decision

Cryptic Puffin says:

Disclaimer: uproariously funny. May cause laughter-related injuries.

4. Hamlet -- The Text Adventure
by Robin Johnson
(2003)
Average member rating: (16 ratings)

Cryptic Puffin says:

Hamlet as you've never seen it before, but wish you had. Shakespeare would be proud and would also urge you to go and take that instant ferry ride from Denmark to England which is apparently one room away from Scotland.

5. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
by Douglas Adams and Steve Meretzky
(1984)
Average member rating: (171 ratings)

Cryptic Puffin says:

You know it. You fear it. The babel fish haunts your dreams, but still you play it, darn it, because it is too good and too funny and too perfect an adaptation and by Douglas Adams himself and no less and you curse yourself for being unable to resist like many who came before you.

6. Pick Up the Phone Booth and Aisle, by David Dyte, Steve Bernard, Dan Shiovitz, Iain Merrick, Liza Daly, John Cater, Ola Sverre Bauge, J. Robinson Wheeler, Jon Blask, Dan Schmidt, Stephen Granade, Rob Noyes, and Emily Short (2001)
Average member rating: (100 ratings)
Cryptic Puffin says:

Try everything, then laugh at all of it. It may bend your perception of reality, but it's too funny for that to matter any more than why you're wearing explosive (correction: esplosive) pants in the first place.

7. Oppositely Opal
by Buster Hudson
(2015)
Average member rating: (49 ratings)

Cryptic Puffin says:

Valley girl witch trapped in cabin with only her spells and her sass. And yes, you are expected to turn everything pink.

8. Captain Verdeterre's Plunder
by Ryan Veeder
(2013)
Average member rating: (38 ratings)

Cryptic Puffin says:

Rats flee sinking ships, yes, but pirate rats take all the treasure they can carry first (as is widely known by learned persons). Will you be that pirate rat? Will you make tons of money and then brag about it to everyone you know? I got 861 spanish dollars take THAT why don't you.

9. Erstwhile
by Aster Fialla, Marijke Perry
(2018)
Average member rating: (30 ratings)

Cryptic Puffin says:

Did you ever want to solve your own murder while being incredibly witty and hilarious about the whole thing?
***YOUR WISH HAS BEEN GRANTED***

10. Reference and Representation: An Approach to First-Order Semantics
by Ryan Veeder
(2016)
Average member rating: (31 ratings)

Cryptic Puffin says:

Finally, you can be that caveman you've always wanted to be, and face those deadly dinosaurs in spite of the crushing reality of (pre)historical accuracy.

11. The Dragon Will Tell You Your Future Now

Spoilers: your future involves a door. And a matrix kick.
