29 Oct THERE’S NOTHING SCARIER THAN 90’S FMV GAMES | Harvester
LaughingMan is being sadistic this Halloween. 1990s FMV games are scary enough, but nothing can prepare Nat, Wade, and Fuboo for the psychological horrors of the ultra-violent, cult PC game, Harvester.
LaughingMan disturbs Wade, Nat, and The Fuboo with a quick overview of the live-action FMV cult classic, Harvester. During the game stream, the protagonist witnesses his younger brother watch horrific violence in a cowboy television series, and watches a baby eat a spider. They recoil when LaughingMan tells them you can proposition your own mother, visit a firehouse where the firemen are gay, meet one of the creepiest neighbors on earth, watch a teacher bludgeon a child for questioning authority, and visit your incestuous soon-to-be father-in-law. Finally, as the insanity is reaching its boiling point, LaughingMan convinces an officer at a nuclear missile base to start a nuclear holocaust.
Out of morbid curiosity, Wade visits the Harvester Wiki. They discover that the only thing more horrifying than Harvester, are some of the insane happenings to the cast and developers behind the game.
Harvester is a 1996 point-and-click psychological horror game. The protagonist, Steve, wakes up in the surreal town of Harvest with a case of amnesia. But even if he can’t remember his past, he knows something is horribly, horribly wrong in this dark, and ultra-violent parody of suburban America.
Harvester borders on a Lynchian, Twin Peaks-like take on the 1950s and 60s, with a poignantly violent twist. Additionally, there’s loads of branching story lines, moral choices, and disturbing secrets. The result is a dark satire of violence in the media that has found a cult following.
