i don't think i played that many Houmongous games other than the Backyard series, still i almost cried a little bit when i read that discussion in your link.

megarock58: i don't think i played that many Humongous games other than the Backyard series, still i almost cried a little bit when i read that discussion in your link.
(Can I assume 58 isn't the year you were born?) Good cry or bad cry? I guess nostalgia is usually a bit of both. In any case, I'm trying to raise support in an attempt to bring these games here, hopefully for 5.99 prices + soundtracks. :-)

---------------------------------------------------

I read some depressing information about the soundtrack; Team Fat seems to have the catchiest song registered - "Welcome To the Zoo" - so I don't know if that means we could get the rest of the soundtrack here or not.
Never enough of point and click here.
That, and bringing back some childhood memories is just priceless.
Voted!
At 18 years old many of these games populated my childhood. Spy Fox and Freddi Fish WERE the shit, and Pajama Sam was pretty cool too! I haven't played them for years but I'd say they could still hold up today. I'd call the story-lines less "kiddie" also and really more "family friendly," able to be enjoyed by anyone who's heart isn't made of stone. These games taught me about video gaming as a kid in a household where other games weren't allowed.
I plan on collecting more positive YouTube quotes, but for right now this is a pointless bump.
Dear GOG Gods,

Might I suggest that "once a gamer, always a gamer" is a pretty clever idea to think about. I bought all the Humongous Games for my kid back when they were new. Now all the "kids" that played those games are here on GOG as customers - and they're having kids. Consider the financial gain of gamers buying those games for their kids - and maybe even grand-kids!

Just sayin' is all!

Best,

I second the notion!
Well, here's my first forum post, so here we go!
I'm all for a decision like this. Humongous games have a fairly large periphery demographic, so I can see it happening. I'm the one on YouTube who has probably made more Humongous videos than anybody else, and I've been attached to these games since I was young. There are also a few that have never been re-released (the old DOS titles come to mind), so it would be great if we could go those out again.
All in all, I fully support this.

I just noticed that the "Creatures" series is probably the best example of children's games on here (aside from Manhole), although they don't interest me. http://www.gog.com/catalogue?search=educational
Freddi Fish and the Case of the Missing Kelp Seeds (MrEightThreeOne/HumongousSoundtracks walkthrough)

I think that I was among the luckiest kids to get playing this amazing game....it's been 10 years now. It's wonderful to feel the memories again....
-KralZahin731

*sniff* Man....i'm 15 and I remember playing these games when I was 5. Freddy Fish, Pajama Sam, Spy Fox, PutPut, Tonka Contruction. Those games bring me back. It just brought back memories that were stuck down in the depths! *sniff* Childhood man....childhood.
-AntiAssault09

True gamers come from this
-90rubixcube

Man, they put a lot of animation into these games. It's always good to see such sincere effort put into children's entertainment.
-rcarlson1993

Aw man, Played this back in the late 90's, I wish kids stopped playing modern warfare and started playing this, at least it teaches you something.
-StawrFawks

I cannot even tell you how many times I played this game, it was my absolute favorite game when I was really little:D OMG this is making me so happy:)
-shortyisakilla14

So...much...nostalgia! I miss playing this game all the time.
-kablamoid96

I miss Freddie!
-Ashley Countryman

This was such a rich game. Half the fun was just messing around with all the easter-eggs and interactive scenery! Soundtrack helped too.
-TastyBusiness

i played this game all the time when i was little but i had lost the disk to play it.... i was so sad that day
-funnygal111

I'd give anything to play all these games again for the sake of pure nostalgia. I loved these as a kid =)
-TheAeroAvatar

I remember when I played this game... so long ago... I loved this game...
-Alex Bennington

I am heading off the college Sunday and I am replaying these games before I go.
-ThePrower

No matter how manly I am, I feel like crying since I miss my childhood. I have every Pajama Sam and played the first one so much that my nickname was "Pajama Sam". I have spy fox as well including Almost every Putt Putt except the moon one. I was crushed to find out that Humongous went bankrupt. I want to thank them for an amazing childhood.
-Joshmarti23

I'm 16 and played this with my best friend when I was 6. For some reason I remembered playing it just now and googled it, now here I am. This was a great implement to my childhood.
-ElixirPotion

(and many more... ;)
Wow, there seem to be a lot more "Junior Adventurers" out there than I thought. Well fortunately, our wait may almost be over. The other day I sent an e-mail to Nimbus wondering why things had been rather quiet from them lately (lack of newsletters, little/no social media presence since mid-January).
They sent me this response:

"Colin,
Thank you for your email and concern.

We are in the midst of a large distribution agreement, which means we are
very busy working on integrating sdk's and preparing for release on PC :).

We will keep you informed.

Your Support Team."


Nothing was mentioned about GOG, but still this is awesome news!
