The Preposterous Awesomeness of Everything is a satirical point-and-click adventure game, about progress, politics and propulsive nozzles. It features a traditional verb-based interface, with updated verbs (including 'befuddle', 'disrespect' and 'pray-for'), unique collage-based art and ~15,000 words (3-4 hours?) of intellectually stimulating satirical shenanigans.

The preposterous Awesomeness of Everything is about an apparently primitive society, attempting to work together to build a space rocket. It follows these people, from disordered chaos (the past), through a disgusting and distorted and horrible and hilarious kind of faux-democracy (the present (SATIRE! Amirite?!?!)), into the unknowable, irrelevant emptiness of outer space (the future).

Along the journey players will encounter a host of colourful characters (including the mysterious Man with the Little Pencil, the superfluous Man in the Wren Suit and the fabulous Helen), they will solve a variety of engaging puzzles, and they will be forced into making a number of difficult moral decisions, with potential disastrous consequences!Features:

The Preposterous Awesomeness of Everything reviews and comments

The old-fashioned Point'n click, the disgusting graphic style. Oh, really. I will be told that it is subjective, but this author (Joe Richardson) is able to use this original animation paw in a more "artistic" way (as can be seen on his other game ' four last things '), without pouring into the cradingue under cover of humour. A humor again, that did not fly:-( This style of play must be of quality if it wants to distinguish itself from the plethoric offer offered by the steam store. Here, the production is minimalist: not menus, unable to adjust the display or sound, no dubbing, no cloud backup (nor backup from elsewhere, only a system of checkpoints). No controller support either, and the only language available is English... This thing has the nerve to sell 7 euros, a shame considering the content offered.

"The Preposterous Awesomeness of Everything" is a Point & click game programmed by Joe Richardson and released on February 9, 2016. It deals satirical with technical Progress and Politics. The Graphics are held in a Kind of comic style With Paper-type elements, with the Heads being realistic Models (zmd. it seems so) and having big Mouths. The Characters have no Voice, there is only the Writing in different Colors. I received the Game in a key bundle for just under £3200 and have to say it's absolutely worth it even for the Full Price of £7. The Jokes in the Game are just awesome. As an Example in the Rocket: "Turn around or I'm singing Black Eyed Peas-I got a feeling." The Jokes often come from nothing and that automatically improves the Quality of these. The small Explanations or Cutscenes contain a lot of Wit and are super explained. The Pictures are also absolute Highlights-#superlegit Of Course, you also have to think in every Point & Click Game what steps you take next. There were sometimes quite difficult Puzzles, in which one even thought to One."Boi, it wasn't that hard." The 20 Achievements can be easily achieved and always point you to different "solutions." There are many Ways to die, but also to keep playing the Game. Conclusion: A Point & click game that is simply golden. The Jokes are ingeniously deployed. The Language of the different Characters differs from Person to Person and is funny in its own Way. Conclusion: Scope: 9/10 Graphic: 10/10 (standout graphic Style) Sound: 8/10 (I personally lack the voices) Music: Unevaluable (main Menu only) Play fun: 11/10 Price performance: 10/10 Points average (excluding price performance): 9.5 note (excluding price performance): 9.5 note (excluding Price performance): 1 #superlegit, #uselessducklings Thank you for reading it!
