Another must-play retro game comes free with Amazon Prime Gaming

A legend of Point and Click

Maniac Mansion de LucasArts.

The giant has announced that this July it will give away four other games in addition to the more than 25 games it already offers for Prime Day, and one of them will be the legendary Maniac Mansion . This great graphic adventure from Lucasarts was the one that introduced the SCUMM (Script Creation Utility for Maniac Mansion) engine for the first time, so as you can imagine, it laid a large part of the foundations of what many know today as a graphic adventure.

The game put us in the shoes of 3 friends who decide to look for their missing friend. Suspicion leads him to the Edison family mansion, where a mad scientist is possessed by a meteorite that recently fell in her garden. You will have control of three different characters to choose from eight, and your mission is none other than to rescue Sandy.

As you progress through the adventure you will see that the mansion is truly crazy, and that nothing there makes sense. But all that craziness is going to be hilarious, and all of that is the best thing about the game.

More free games

The other three games aren’t particularly great, but they’re always interesting to have in your library to check out later. In Suzerain , we will enjoy a text-based role-playing event where we will put ourselves in the shoes of a president who must lead a nation, Sordland.

Fishing: North Atlantic is a boat fishing game on the high seas, where you will have to design the routes, choose the baits and define the fishing day to get the most booty possible.

Fell Seal: Arbiter’s Mark is an RPG with a very handcrafted artistic plan that will allow you to configure many variables to design very complex and perfectly orchestrated battles.

The games are currently unavailable , as you’ll have to wait until July 3 for them to appear in Amazon’s Prime Gaming section. That’s when you can add them to your Amazon Games library and start playing it.

Love for graphic adventures

Amazon has been giving away incredible graphic adventures for several months. After Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis and three Monkey Island , the arrival of Maniac Mansion is a Lucasarts poker adventure that many dream of being able to play again for the first time. So now you know, if you haven’t played them yet, there is no better time than now to start this irremediable master of Point and Click adventures. And by the way, if you get itchy on the subject and you are curious about this type of game, we recommend the book The Art of Point and Click Adventura Games, which through interviews with titans of the industry of those years, reviews the golden age of those games that many enjoyed.
