The Fool and his Money playable demo

Go get it.

Ooh, shiny.

(Requires Shockwave Player 11 from Adobe. When I ran the teaser app on my Mac laptop, it told me this and then sent my web browser to get Shockwave Player 10, which was confusing and unhelpful. Go to Adobe's site and get it directly.)

EDIT-ADD: The web site says the full game will be out in "early summer" -- he hopes.

A friend comments that one of the early puzzles is unduly hard if you're using a trackpad (as opposed to a mouse). I believe him. This is primarily a game of word and image puzzles, but -- as with Johnson's earlier games -- there are some click-fast elements.

  1. Solving that puzzle with a trackpad is painful but possible.

    I just hope now that the full game will honor save files made by the demo...

  2. As of 2/12/2009, the MAC version of the Teaser does not require Shockwave.

    Ah, good. I saw someone referring to the Shockwave download process as "the game's first puzzle for Mac users", but it's still better without.

    Thanks for stopping by, and I look forward to the full game.

    I came over here from Joe's posting of the Gameshelf promo.

    I love TFE, and I pre-ordered TFaHM *five and a half years* ago. I'm still waiting. Obviously. I am a True Believer.(tm)

    But I love the Teaser. I mapped out the (I think?) complete logic for Imperial Tarot last night.
