Thy Dungeonman 3

Most of the games on the Homestar Runner website are pretty terrible. They can barely be called games. They might waste a few minutes of your life, but in the majority of them you’ll have seen all there is to see within the first two or three seconds of playing. There are a couple of standouts, though, like Thy Dungeonman 3.

Thy Dungeonman 3, as you might surmise, is the third game in a series where the goal of the main character, the Dungeonman in question, is to obtain ‘ye flask’. Why does he want the flask? The game never makes it really clear, but don’t worry about that.

This game is a throwback to those text adventure games that I like so much, but is way easier to figure out.

Just look at those graphics! This game is as much an homage as it is a parody of those old text-adventure shareware games that I grew up with, and maybe that’s why I like it so much. Its appeal lies in its simplicity. Even without the aid of a walkthrough (*gasp!*) I was able to plow through the game in about two hours. Even if you had only a passing interest in text-adventure games, I would certainly give this one a try.

And I do.

So I did.

You can play the game here, if you’re so inclined.

  1. I’m snickering at “behold thy graphics.”
