Game description

The first game in the Hugo series, it's a classic style graphical adventure game with a text parser in the style of Sierra's oldies like Leisure Suit Larry. Just as you might have guessed, Hugo explores a haunted house in this game, in order to rescue his girlfriend Penelope. The house is full of familiar tropes like creepy paintings with eyes that follow you, bats and jack-o-lanterns, a mad professor's lab and a dinner full of guests that seem to have come straight from the 1930s horror movies.

You will need to type commands to interact with the game world, similar to The Adventures of Maddog Williams or Denarius Avaricius Sextus. Also note that you do not need to hold the arrow keys to move, as Hugo will start walking in the direction of the pressed key until he encounters an obstacle.

The game was originally marketed as shareware, and now you can order the full trilogy from GOG.
