Hooky McPegleg, Pirate Postman

Download IconDownload (708 kb)

Hooky McPegleg is on a quest for the greatest treasure of all: literacy. Yes, as the town's new postman, he has to learn how to read. But that's not all. There's a sinister mystery in town, and Hooky may be caught in the middle of it.


This is one of my favorite RON games because it's short on puzzles and long on story development. I get easily frustrated by puzzles. -cornjob
