Default Thornytowers - Humbug

The game I have here, is a little text adventure game called Humbug. It used to be shareware, but now the author has released the game for public distribution. From what I understand you (the player) is sent to your grandfathers house for the holidays. I haven't played much of it, but this description I found on another site makes it sound really wierd and fun.
"Why is Jasper the dentist so desperate that Grandad should sell the manor?
Why has Grandad hidden a time machine in the cellar?
Why does the octopus insist on performing the ancient ritual of Wubble A-Gloop with you?
What doesn’t Kevin the clockwork shark like about your haircut?
What would you do with a trombone, a terrapin and half a pound of lard?"

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Humbug_%28video_game%29

Let me know if you will host it or not. Thanks

P.S. I just realized that this game is available directly from the authors site.... Still, I think that this gem will be brought to public attention if it is at least linked to from this site. Please let me know what you all think about hosting/linking/forgeting about this game.

Sounds interesting. We'll see should we host it or just link it.

Would you be interested in playing it and coming up with review?

We don't

Everything here is volunteer work, so if you find time, it would be nice. If not, well, someone else will maybe review it some time...

The game was approved, so we will add it to our site once you finish your review. Make sure you get some screenshots as well, and one screenshot with title screen.

And thank you for contributing
