Join Marlo in this one of a kind narrative driven, mockumentary style adventure game. Learn about Marlo's life through compelling monologues, solve fun puzzles to help him overcome his odd condition and figure out just what the heck is happening to him! Not everything is as it seems as you'll discover unravelling Marlo's strange story. What happened to Marlo's father? Who is this Linda he keeps talking about? Why does he keep changing into a slug?
Presented as a lo-res hour long documentary film with fully voice acted talking heads, The Mind of Marlo is best described as an absurd combination of TV show The Office and classic point and click adventure games of yore.

A short, blocky point & click with light humor. Most of the gameplay is, like in any point & click, about collecting & using items, here across a couple rooms, while you learn more about the intriguing "documentary subject". Nothing groundbreaking gameplay-wise but the story development is cool, and the game has obviously been made with love, with plenty of fun little jokes & details for you to discover. If the trailer got you interested and you like the genre, go ahead, it's cheap anyway!
