Out Of Order is a traditional 2D pointy clicky adventure game. It's a comedy thriller why-dunnit which could almost - almost - fall into the category "sci-fi". But only if it's pronounced with a non-silent "c" and to rhyme with "iffy". It's high-res and high colour, consists of around 30 rooms, took about 3 years to make and is, thanks to a sudden change of heart and a lazy streak about 4-foot wide, free. Yes, free. As in... free.
Welcome to The Town
Ever woken up in the middle of the night to find you've been kidnapped... and so's your bedroom? Ever had to fend for yourself in the face of strangely hypnotic music, alien doctors, talking computers a-plenty and half-finished bathrooms? Ever found something unpleasant in a burger?
If so, Out Of Order should play like any other day in your life.
Otherwise, it's an experience not to be missed.
If out of chaos comes order, what comes Out Of Order?
People, people everywhere
No adventure game is complete without a collection of oddities

The lead character, Hurford is a 20-something nobody who still lives with his
parents. Normally, he's the kind of person whose idea of making his
own way in the world means having nobody to prepare his lunch...
but he's about to find himself thrust into a world where, if you don't
look out for yourself, you'll be lucky if you're seen at all.
Hurford's neighbour, she's famous for being famous and isn't quite
sure what she does for a living. Or, for that matter, her age.
Owns an electrical store in the shopping centre. A thoroughly
reasonable chap at heart, his passion is his catalogue of electronic
gadgets and he can't quite cope with the concept of people not knowing
exactly what they want to buy.
To call him a barman would probably be an exageration, despite the
fact that he's a man standing behind a bar. Creator of strange drinks,
owner of a strange fruit machine and an even stranger accent and
wearer of a strange goatee, he's never quite understood authenticity
but makes up for it with... frankly, grime.
And more besides...
