29 Oct THIS GAME WILL DESTROY YOUR SANITY | Harvester
A sadistic LaughingMan makes Nat, Wade and Fuboo watch him play the insane cult classic horror game, Harvester. But nothing can prepare Nat, Wade, and Fuboo for the horror of 1990’s Full Motion Video (FMV) games.
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. Several developers of the game went on to help create some of the most iconic games, like Half-life. However, we soon learn that the lead actor of Harvester, Kurt Kistler, was arrested for “CP”.
A strange and twisted world… Harvester! The most violent adventure game of all time. 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.
