Turns out one of the teases that Night Dive has been making
has come to fruition. Night Dive and Tommo are bringing 28 classic titles from Humongous Entertainment
, the educational software company founded by Ron Gilbert and Shelly Day, to Steam.
Today sees six releases on Steam: Putt-Putt Joins the Parade, Freddi Fish and The Case of the Missing Kelp Seeds, Pajama Sam: No Need to Hide When It’s Dark Outside, Spy Fox in: Dry Cereal, Putt-Putt and Pep’s Balloon-o-Rama, and Freddi Fish and Luther’s Maze Madness. On May 1st those games will be joined by Putt-Putt Goes to the Moon, Freddi Fish 2: The Case of the Haunted Schoolhouse, Pajama Sam 2: Thunder and Lightning Aren’t so Frightening, Spy Fox 2: Some Assembly Required, Putt-Putt and Pep’s Dog on a Stick, and Freddi Fish and Luther’s Water Worries. May 15th will see the release of Putt-Putt Travels through Time, Freddi Fish 3: The Case of the Stolen Conch Shell, Pajama Sam 3: You Are What You Eat from Your Head to Your Feet, Spy Fox 3: Operation Ozone, and Putt-Putt and Fatty Bear’s Activity Pack. Then on May 29th Steam will receive Putt-Putt Enters the Race, Putt-Putt Joins the Circus, Freddi Fish 4: The Case of the Hogfish Rustlers of Briny Gulch, Pajama Sam 4: Life Is Rough When You Lose Your Stuff!, and Spy Fox in: Cheese Chase. Finally, on June 6th, the final releases will come out, including Putt-Putt: Pep’s Birthday Surprise, Freddi Fish 5: The Case of the Creature of Coral Cove, Pajama Sam’s Sock Works, Spy Fox in: Hold the Mustard, and Pajama Sam’s Lost & Found.
Here's hoping that these games get released on GOG.com as well. And now that this humongous rumor has become reality, hopefully the other one
will come to fruition as well.
