Remember adventure games, back when processors came in megahertz and computer cases sported turbo buttons? Well, LonLonRanch does, and to prove it, he's come up with a charming little retro throwback called Stable Boy, with controls as simple as its premise. Just click your mouse to move, interact, and explore this cute little medieval kingdom while pressing [A] to throw deadly pieces of rotten cabbage at your foes, and [S] to check "ye olde stash." If you're going to find out what happened to your village, you're going to have to explore and talk to everyone... especially if you want to discover more than one ending.
Where the game really shines is its pixerlart and humor; it's more Monty Python than King's Quest and you'll get more than one chuckle at all the silly Ren Faire tropes. You'll also die a bunch of times, but thankfully you'll be transported back a few moments before your death, so you'll never have a reason to tear your cloak or rip your corset in frustration. It's simple, silly fun that makes for a perfect escape from your daily existence... especially if you've always wanted to live a glamorous life of mucking out stables.
