Horrible mutations roam the countryside... monsters spawned of radiation, environmental toxins, and unregulated bio-engineering. But in a tiny corner of New Jersey, a small group of Superheroes has banded together. Their mission: to nurture the rebirth of a new society, to ease the suffering of the dark age, and to provide a place where Superheroes can always find a date on Saturday night.Lead a hilarious band of superheroes

Throwback Thursday Recommendation
Every Thursday, we share the earnest reasons that make a classic game so dear to us!Recommended by Frank Cifaldi from The Video Game History Foundation I'm a sucker for superhero parody, and I'm also a sucker for 90s point-and-click adventure games, so this is a hard one for me to resist. On top of that, the game is designed by Steve Meretzky, an absolute legend. The only thing holding this one back is a bit of interface and design awkwardness due to its age (you might want to have a walkthrough on standby), but I don't think that's going to be a problem for most GOG players!Recommended by Judas, Technical Customer Support Specialist at GOGIf you ever wanted to drown someone in red tape or raise their cholesterol to dangerous levels or deal with crazed sheep while looking inside pizza boxes without opening them then why not give Superhero League of Hoboken a try? The game features turn-based dungeon crawler style combat as well as some point-and-click elements to great effect. Can't recommend it enough!Click here to discover the ever-expanding Throwback Thursday collection of games.
