I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream

Part 1

"I Have No Mouth and I must Scream" has always been one of my favorite adventure games, from the execellent voice acting (esepecially with Harlan Ellison as AM), the unique open-ended puzzles, and the unusual settings that are more based off the characters psyche than anything else, it's just a really unique and well done adventure game whos main flaws are that a few of the puzzles require serious abstract logic (although it's not so abstract if you pay attention to what the characters and AM say) and that it needed some further bug testing.
Based on the short story by Harlan Ellison ( the game goes deeper into both the characters themselves as well as what AM is and the reasons for its hate.
