This game has been a labour of love by 2 devs (CaptainD and TheBitPriest) - who should know better, but just can't help loving the genre - with help from multiple other people over time. We were inspired by the classic adventure games produced by Lucasfilm Games and Sierra, and believe we have created something that will hopefully, like those games, stand the test of time.
"What I loved most about this game is that it is well-written with a delightful sense of comic humor... To summarize, CaptainD and TheBitPriest have done an admirable job of creating a game that is delightful to play. " (Just Adventure)
"The puzzles aren’t the only enjoyable part of the game though, the story is absolutely delightful. If you like a humor filled sci-fi tale chocked to the brim with references from many different science fiction properties then you won’t be disappointed... if you are in the mood for a good old school point and click this is a hard game to pass up. Even if that isn’t your forte, the story is a fun romp and to me really sells the game." (NeoRetro Go!)
"Captain Disaster turned out to be an incredibly in-depth adventure with a world more vivid than we imagined from first impressions. It is difficult, harking back to a similar era of games, but you’ll find yourself motivated to carry on by the sheer litany of puns and references. " (BigBossBattle)
"Funky music, varied locales, lovely pixel art, appropriately cheesy voice acting and a story full of twists and turns one simply has to experience to believe. Were I to simply tell the tale of what Captain Disaster in: Death Has A Million Stomping Boots experienced, chances are most would think me absolutely mad." (Wraithkal)
What players have said:
"An hilarious and fun to play spacefaring adventure, full of clever ideas and puzzles of all sorts"
"A fun successor to games like Space Quest with references and jokes aplenty and a lighthearted atmosphere that doesn't take itself seriously in the slightest. Had a lot of fun figuring out the puzzles and meeting all the bizarre characters."
"If you have a fondness for planet-hopping sci-fi TV shows and movies of yesteryear, and you also like the idea of guiding a bumbling buffoon through a comedy of errors in deep space, give this game a try."
"A great game polished to a brilliant sheen over many years of development.
Instant adventure game classic!"
"excellent story with engaging & challenging game play with a lot of subtle social comment & brought to life with humorous voice-acting .....What more can I say!"
"I found it to be a delightful & engaging game brought to life with an interesting story, humour that I could immediately identify with & pretty good voice acting!"
"A spoof of the space opera genre that actually manages to be THE best space opera I've seen in years. It's quite simply FUN! It's got a memorable cast of aliens, robots and AI's. It's got an epic finale. "
"The jokes, and Captain Disaster himself were really fun to play. "
"It's a very fun game with a great combination of story and mixture of some tributes to movies and games!"
"It's Captain Disaster, a zany, outlandish comedy game that never fails to amuse. Gameplay is not too difficult/frustrating, and voice acting I thought was top rate. As a commercial game, I feel like it is a complete package, I only wish it were longer."
