Prepare for stark torment and relive the horrific traumas of renowned adventure game I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream, now on GOG.com, the DRM-free home to the immortal PC classics. Based upon the Hugo-winning short story of the same name by famous science fiction author, this game is known best for extraordinary psychological depth and a unique summation of human civilization’s output, as well as its fundamentally bleak outlook.
I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream has been lauded, since its release in 1995, above all, for its extremely mature and thought-provoking approach to moral dilemmas. The critics have agreed that the game had “more psychological depth than any other computer game” (PC Gamer US), and was a “combination of the entertaining and the profound that could prove to be the foundation of an important gaming subgenre in the future” (Computer Player). Difficult topics, rarely tackled by computer games, such as paranoia, genocide, and insanity are amplified by “nightmarish graphics, high-quality audio” (Electronic Entertainment) and haunting voice-acting from Harlan Ellison himself.
