Mystery is one of the most revered point-and-click adventure games of all time, known for its meditative nature and thoughtful storyline. But what if you threw all that zen-like exploration of a strange, beautiful island right out the window? The Woe Industries team was brave enough to ask this question, and the answer they gave is My dear FPS, a point-and-kill adventure game that tasks the player with something truly new: killing demons with a gun.
You can play Myst FPS on the itch.io page for Woe Industries. The game, made by Peter Henningsen And Steven Nas, charges the player with the visceral thrill of slaying no fewer than 100 demonic entities. All the while there’s a sick guitar wailing in the background as a man screams “Myst! Mystery!” on the beat. Hell. Yes.
If you fail in your task, the game will unfortunately reprimand you for not solving the cerebral puzzles of Mystery. A successful run ends with a screen that congratulates you and then shares a link to join Mensa International, that one club for the high IQ. It’s a short shitpost of a game that you can completely digest in just a few minutes, but it’s pretty funny minutes nonetheless.
Henningsen and Mass’ Woe Industries have made crazy little games in this style before, including Food Poisoning: The Game (“a game about crime, free will and explosive diarrhea”) and the now classic Chris Pratt is Super Mario.
