The Feeble Files is an adventure set in a science-fiction world. It is sort of a sequel to Simon The Sorcerer, at least it has the same kind of British humor. Smile

You are Feeble, an alien living in a highly oppressive society - controlled by 'The Company' and its clan of Enforcers. Everyone on the planet, including members of 'The Company', are controlled by the god-like Omnibrain - a collection of 'neural tissues with intense computational powers'.

The aptly named Feeble's insignificant existence turns full circle when his ship collides with the Voyager probe whilst he is navigating an asteroid belt. A 'Company' violation in its self, the repercussions of Feeble's joy-ride come to a climax when the off-course Voyager collides and destroys a Company installation unit. Soon the blame is put on Feeble, and in true Company style, Feeble is arrested and sent to a high security prison, where he meets the most influential person in his mission, die hard revolutionary and member of the Rebellion, Delores. Together they team up, joining forces with a military robot, on a mission to reveal the truth about the Company, destroy the Omnibrain, and give freedom back to the people. Rebellion has never looked so pAtHeTiC!!!

The Feeble Files offers English, German, French and Spanish installations.

Delightfully Odd story, very long (3 CDs), less having to do with "The X Files" the plot devices here are like the movie "Monsters, Inc." except the humor is mildly adult instead of for small children. Then Feeble beats Monsters Inc by coming out a few years ahead.

Some puzzles are highly contrived, like old Infocom's Hitchhiker's Guide, so much that Feeble already came with a complete "walkthru" text file in the root of disc one. The author was afraid his work could flop without being accompanied by full walkthru. I tested in OSX Tiger (non Classic mode). A fun play, 4 stars.

I have just replaced the MU links with new ones that work.

Alright, I just finished uploading of all three discs. I also uploaded the final patch to the Mac Garden, which will make the game run on early OS X versions too. It's a fun adventure game, give it a try. Enjoy! Smile
