The Sagittarian 4: Bayou
Hyptosis and the zombie apocalypse go together like peanut butter and brains, so it's no surprise we've got another installment in his choose-your-own-adventure series with The Sagittarian 4: Bayou. As part of a group of survivors, you're paddling a boat on another profanity-laden adventure of guns, swearing, zombies, swearing, shoot-outs, and more swearing. Just pick the option that appeals most to you when presented, and don't worry too much if it results in death since the game will allow you to instantly reload back to your most recent (bad) decision or further. It's well illustrated and even mostly well written, but it's also sort of hard to take seriously. Even without the distracting, mood-breaking text at the bottom of the screen that constantly chatters at you about the mute function, the fact that so many of the deaths feel completely random and impossible to predict based on your choices will be a turn-off for some players. If you're already a fan of the first few chapters, however, chances are you're not only used to this, but enjoy it for the slightly goofy zombiedrama it is. It's of just the right size to fit into a coffee break with a good chunk of options and character interaction to carry you through. Just remember, if you hear banjos... paddle faster.
