Linux Game of the Month : Fillets-NG

Filed under
Gaming

There is something I like about playing games that is, strangely enough, much the same as what I enjoy about reading science fiction or fantasy. The medium lends itself beautifully to creating other times, places, and even worlds. Some of these worlds can be familiar — what we call simulations — while others are a bit more out there. My game recommendation for this month is called Fish Fillets Next Generation, and it definitely fits into the out there category. Perhaps a little description to start with...

Fish Fillets Next Generation is a Linux port and rewrite of a game originally called (simply) Fish Fillets. The game starts with our friendly fish protagonists sitting aroung the table discussing whatever it is fish discuss, when suddenly, a heavy metal cylinder drops on the table in front of them ... a talking cylinder no less. Something is obvioulsy afoot (or afin) in their world, and the intrepid duo decide to go out and investigate. There's only one problem — the cylinder has separated the pair and made it impossible for them to get out.

No, not impossible, just puzzling. This first puzzle is just a teaser, enough to get you into the second level where the information in a mysterious briefcase informs them of a diabolical plot.

Full Review.

Playing it

I had been playing that for quite a while - until I got stuck. It looks easy, but it gets hard! It ain't for whimps! ...or maybe I'm just too blonde. Big Grin

Anyway, my 1 year old granddaughter likes it too, even if it's just for the dialog and music. Big Grin
