MeaghanThe ProposalWhen a man decides he wants to propose to the love of his life the last thing he expects is a jilted lover from the past coming around to mess things up. Seriously, third grade love? Some people really never realize when it's time to let go. Such is the case in the recent Carmel Games point-and-click adventure game The Proposal, where poor Josh finds that the girl he's planning to propose to has suddenly vanished. Upon realizing that your lady love has pulled a Houdini, you travel through the town stopping at different (sometimes silly) locations in order to find goods that will unravel where your beloved significant other has vanished off to. You'll click on your map in the top right corner to go back to the town layout and from there click through the mystery of the disappearing girlfriend.

This quirky game is a great addition to the robust genre of the offbeat catalog but its quality is improved compared to competitors. The graphics are more crisp (in a cartoonish way), and the protagonist has more objects to interact with than merely the ones he has to use to progress in his mission. The placement of the inventory boxes can seem somewhat cumbersome but doesn't detract from the full tilt silliness of the game itself, nor outright hinder gameplay. Essentially, this is a short but pleasing game with the age old tale of thwarted vengeance and destined love! Or at least one about a creepy stalker and valiant boyfriend.

Game is pretty simple, but you might need a couple hints for things that are really not that logical.

You'll need to put the bucket on the sushi counter and then use the plunger on the fish tank

and

You'll need to douse the magazine rack with the perfume, then light it on fire to create a diversion.

re: Username's first spoiler

The octopus one is fairly logical. When you plunger the tank, the octopus sprays ink over there. Hence, you need to put the bucket there to catch it.

The other one is quite a leap, but was obvious because the fire is in the screenshot -.-

I love how...

The guy in the 99c store just keeps using the fire extinguisher... FOREVER.

And how Becky seems surprised to be getting proposed to, even though Rocco told her she was getting married to somebody else.

And of course, a lesson to all would be villains, don't suspend a giant weight above your work station. No good will come of this.

@Mystify:

That you would use a plunger in a fish tank is what seemed illogical to me. Especially when there's a bathroom in the game.

That was short, sweet, cute, and utterly ridiculous. Well worth a play! One or two of the puzzles are pretty non-intuitive, but definitely not that hard as a whole.

Fun, with one exception.

Having won at the slot machine, and gotten enough money to pay the Fortune Teller, it never occurred to me that I would need to _lose_ again at the slot machine, in order to get into that room in the basement of the casino.
