Bad news everybody!Okay so this\'ll be short, but in all likelihood, I am going to be shutting this page down. It\'s expensive (very), and I do not think it\'s needed anymore given the success of GOG.com, Abandonia, and a few others. I simply don\'thave the time to keep it up and running, nor can do I have the time to make it the kickass community that I think it needs to be. I tried to ping abandonia about taking it over, but I never got a response. if anyone else has any alternative ideas, drop me a line at admin at hotud.org and we can figure something out.

One of the strangest adventure games ever made, Kobayashi Naru (despite the misspelling on the box as Kobyashi Naru) has an innovative interface (choose a verb among icons and specific noun from the description of the scene to make sentences) but an incomprehensible plot (similar to Mastertronic's earlier Shard of Inovar). The game, which takes place on an alien planet, hardly makes any sense at all, especially because of the strange words like "klam" that you'll often hear in the game but have no idea of their meaning. Fortunately, easy puzzles help save the game from being an exercise in frustration. Play it only if you are curious about how convoluted a game can get.
