There hasn't been a good classic-style point and click adventure game for a while. This might be worth checking out.
This is one of the best adventure games I've played since the glory days of Monkey Island. It's genuinely funny, witty, atmospheric and clever. What's more, you get hours and hours of gameplay out of it and it really gives you your money's worth. I really hope they make a sequel one day.
Death sounding like an English aristocrat? Stretching it a bit, despite the visuals being interesting.
