I bought this game for my PC last week and it kicks ass.  I beat it today.  It was fun... But so short.  I beat it in like 12 hours, and that kind of disappointed me.

I also thought it was a lot easier than the other Tim Shafer games I have played (Monkey Island series, I never played full throttle or Grim Fandango, so I don't know if the comment applies to them or not).

If you want to pick up a pretty sweet platformer/adventure game for $30 on the PC, I totally recommend this though, the story is hilarious, and it is a blast to play.  I think they are still doing a deal at gamestop.com where you can get a free tshirt with it, which is awesome.

I've been curious about it, reviews I've read on it certainly make it sound interesting.

It's not that different in terms of game but the whole game feels like a cross between Tim Burton and Invader Zim. The dialogue is really well-written, and the jokes are actually FUNNY.

The funniest game I've played in years.

The Milkman Conspiracy level was insanely clever and twisted.

All in all, one of the best platformers I've played in a while.

Started playing it, then got sucked into GW.  I'll get around to finishing it SOME time.  Right?

The Milkman level was definitely my favorite.  All of the things the "agents" or whatever they were would say were hilarious.  "I am a housewife.  I am baking pies.  Would you like to exchange recipes?"
