What can I say about Captain Disaster in the Dark Side of the Moon:  Zany? Funny?....Typical CaptainD style that we have come to know and love... 
This early episode, although quite old now and not as strong as the later stuff is still enjoyable enough to play. Overall I thought the game showed promise at the time of what was/is to come. A monster has been set lose.

About

Sleep walking through an open StarGate isn't the best of ways to end up on a distant moon, especially when the StarGate closes behind you before you wake up. This is the position that the intrepid Captain Disaster finds himself in - not all, however, is as it seems; there is a greater purpose at work here. With innumerable references to classic adventure games, science fiction and of course Pink Floyd, Captain Disaster in "The Dark Side of the Moon" is a light-hearted point and click adventure game which will exercise both your grey matter and funny bone. It's the first full adventure game to feature the Captain Disaster character - two more (commercial) games are in development, and hopefully many more to come in the future.

I have added a short teaser trailer on the game page if anyone's interested!

I expected to be replaying a classic AGS game, but with voice acting, but was VERY pleasantly surprised to find that I have never actually played it before 8-0

I know right?!

I guess that every time I looked for a new AGS game to play I skipped over this one, assuming that I'd already played it...

So, thank God you released the Talkie version, or I might never have played what is now on my list of best AGS games!

Your voice is also spot-on for the Red Dwarf/Hitchhikers' Guide tone of the game, and your American accent for Floyd is delightfully all over the place, which weirdly fits his character as a malfunctioning AI...(Intentional, I'm sure...)

GREAT game which kept a smile on my face the whole while playing!
