Default LET'S STREAM PUTT-PUTT GOES TO THE MOON - And Begins His Quiet Ascension


THE EYES OF A CAR WITH NOTHING LEFT TO LOSE

Hello ladies and gentlemen! Welcome to Let's Stream Putt-Putt Goes to the Moon!

Putt-Putt Goes to the Moon is an educational adventure game developed by Humongous Entertainment. It was first released as a DOS game in October 1993, then ported to Windows 3.1 in 1995, then finally became available on Steam in May 2014, over two decades after it's initial release. It's also the second game in the Putt-Putt Series, which currently spans seven titles one of which I've already streamed.

As always, all the footage for this let's play was recorded live on my Hitbox Channel with skype Crew weiging in and adding color commentary. Sadly I was not able to include the hitbox Text Chat as I originally wanted to, as it started causing weird issues with open broadcaster. I really need to find a more elegant way to include it other than just drawing a capture box around the chat popout.

I can't join you, as it's my husband's last day in town before his big business trip, but I am cheering from the sidelines!

...thoooough the DOS Humongous games aren't nearly as good as the later stuff. Although I know you're into that stuff for the stream.

PUTT-PUTT GOES TO THE MOON 01

YOU'RE GOING FOR A RIDE

IRRESPONSIBLE FIREWORKS HANDLERS
Nodal - Patito - Smiler - FanBoyMaster

What the fuck is up with Putt-Putt's face? The combination of his eyes the size of dinner plates and his terrible Rictus grin! That is the face of a man who has seen too much, and now lies to both the world and himself.

Oh right I gotta summarize the video okay okay here goes.

Putt and Pep take a wonderful and educational trip to Mr. Firebird's Fireworks Factory! Unfortunately, their little adventure takes a dark turn because dogs can't read. Doomed to his fate, Slim Puttins does the right thing and he rides the bomb to hell, yeah he rides the bomb to hell.

Smiler: I'll give you a hand! I'm Mr Firebird! Hey Putt-Putt, go in my disassembly machine! I'll turn you into your base parts now!
FanboyMaster: That's getting distressing really fast.

PUTT-PUTT GOES TO THE MOON 02

WELCOME TO PALE LUNA

TINY RODENT TOURISTS
Nodal - Patito - Smiler - FanBoyMaster

Putt-Putt lands on the moon, dicks around in a maze for a little bit, and then makes a new friend, Rover the abandoned moon rover! The (Human?!) astronauts apparently left him behind after they had no more use for him.

There are no longer any humans in the Putt-Putt universe.

I think we now know why.

Anyways after surviving a harrowing experience in a pit of moon muck, we consult with a two-headed ice cream vendor to find out the actual objective of the game! To buy their ice cream stand, convert it into a terrifyingly unsafe rocket ship, and blast off back to earth! After a brief sojourn into an alien bar and drinking some sort of horrific transformative swill, Putt-Putt accepts his new mission, and sets out on his quest!

BEAT: He had fucking lazers and cranes and shit, and what do we got? We got a fucking antenna!

PUTT-PUTT GOES TO THE MOON 03

MOONS FOR MOON GOD

SHOOTING HOOPS WITH TOEJAM AND EARL
Nodal - Patito - Smiler - FanBoyMaster

Putt-Putt begins his search for the much-needed glowing moon crystals at the first place he can think of, a luxury apartment complex! Then he immediately leaves, because none of us can ever unsee Ripped Baby.

BEAT: That must have awoken some very strange feelings in the poor children that were first exposed to it.
Smiler: Don't do steroids, kids.

Having fled from those terrors, Putt-Putt gets to play "Alien Tag". It's like earth tag, only the person who's "it" never changes and it has no running or chasing and honestly has a lot more in common with skeet shooting. Whatever. The kids reward his skill with almost enough money to buy half of a privately owned business. Fucking rich brats.

After a deeply spiritual musical experience, Putt-Putt comes face to face with THE MAN OF THE MOON, who has always been and always will be. He gives Luna's Soul a graven image of himself, and is rewarded for his faith with a rocket nose cone. Pleased with his negotiations with god, Putt-Putt reconvenes with Rover, who's managed to locate a steering wheel! But it's way up high!

Well that's not that big a deal, right? Just borrow a ladder from one of the many, many aliens that you've been living around for the last 30 years, right?

Wrong.

Thow a dog at it.

BEAT: Okay, we're gonna toss the dog, which breathes oxygen. presumably.
Nodal: He's already proven that he doesn't breathe oxygen.
Smiler: Yeah it's just a cyborg dog. He's an Aibo.
BEAT:They got rid of all the organic dogs when the cars took over.

PUTT-PUTT GOES TO THE MOON 04

ETHICS IN ALIEN MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY

CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT REPRESENTATIVES
Nodal - Patito - Smiler - FanBoyMaster

Putt-Putt, unsure where to go next in his quest to become a literal rocket scientist stumbles into what's either an alien plastic surgeon's office, or some sort of custom clone lab. The receptionist has no problem with letting an underaged motor vehicle play mix and match with people's bodies.

FanboyMaster (in very robot voice): SEX ROBOT. SEX ROBOT
Patito: Wow.
FanboyMaster (in very robot voice): SEX ROBOT. SEX ROBOT
BEAT: I made sure to ensure that he was well endowed between the legs, if you know what I mean. And by that I mean he has three fucking legs.
Smiler: Is that what you call it, nowadays.

Eventually Putt-Putt grows bored of creating "fucked up abominations unto man & God", and return to the alien ice-cream vendors so we can buy their food cart/3 stage rocket. There he discovers that learn that those crater critter bastards didn't pay us enough for playing tag with them, meaning we gotta go alllll the way back to their awful goddamn craters for more awful goddamn alien tag. And Putt-Putt moves so fucking slowly

BEAT: I just realized Putt-Putt's speedometer is broken. It never goes up when he's moving.
FanboyMaster: Putt-Putt has to belive he's never going any faster, because if he doesn't he'll realize that anything he hits dies.

Anyways we click the aliens again then go all the way back to the ice cream rocket again and buy the place proper. Then it's off to the mayor's office, where apparently they give random keys to anyone who does "good deeds".

So we do one. Specifically we do the exact same good deed that Rover did for us back in Part 2, so logically we could have just sent Rover to pick up the key for us and left the little red guy to rot as God intended.

Then we go back into the maze again because reasons. I'm sure I had at least one. Probably.

BEAT: Don't thank him, he's being a dick! Trying to legistlate morality!
FanboyMaster: Wow.
BEAT: What kinda government is this!?

To be fair, no one will ever read Putt-Putt's speedometer. He can't see inside himself, and there are no humans to ride him! It's possible that it never worked, and no one's ever noticed.

Maybe the speedometer is like a vestigial organ that was left in place.

PUTT-PUTT GOES TO THE MOON 05

SPLASHDOWN SMASHDOWN

SEARCHING FOR SURVIVORS
Nodal - Patito - Smiler - FanBoyMaster

Now then, where were we?

BEAT: Of all the rediculous background elements, the Earth making funny faces at us, trying to bitch us out, is the most frightening to me.
Nodal: When you get back to Earth you're gonna find out that everyone was fuckin thrown off by the force of it rotating to do funny faces.
BEAT: We're gonna land on the wrong side of the earth and just see the enormous mountain range in the distance that makes up his right eye.

Oh right good deeds. We go and tell the mayor that we totally saved some guy and he lets us pick any key to anything we want. I almost pick none of them, because I'm a giant idiot.

Now all we need is is rocket fuel, which Putt-Putt obtains by tracking down a Mr. Robbie Radar in that horrible apartment complex where we met RIPPED BABY. Given the guy in his room, and the fact that nobody else seems to know where he went, we can safely assume that he and the bowtie monster in his room are going through a painful divorce, and he's just going to everyone he knows asking if he can crash on the couch.

At long last, Putt-Putt has everything he needs to escape the Moon: an ice cream stand that was tricked out by a 5-year old, then filled with high explosives. Putt-Putt, Pep and Rover pile into the ramshackle craft, dump the fuel into the dashboard, then turn the ignition key without looking at any of the controls and blast off into destiny!
THE END.

BEAT: My god the looks on their faces. Neither of them know how to fly a rocket, you know.
Smiler:Well... They are going to die-
BEAT: OH MY GOD!

EPILOGUE BONUS POST!
SO IS THIS GAME GOOD?

Eh… sorta?

When you put next to the other Humongous Entertainment Games I've done, it shows it's age much more than the others. This is presumably due to the fact that it was originally made for MS-DOS, which is about as user-friendly as an operating system can possibly get, but even if we forgive the limits of the graphics there are still some seriously WEIRD things going on with the art style. I mean holy crap Putt-Putt, what's wrong with your faaace.

In strict terms of gameplay, everything feels noticeably slower when compared to the ones I've streamed earlier, and not just because this one lacks the ability to skip the transition sequences between my clicks. Again, this is probably due to the MS-DOS roots, but that doesn't mean it's not an issue.

Still, even with those problems the game has a lot of heart and a lot of charm, and it's price is pretty darn low. So if your kid really likes Putt Putt, why not?

SHOULD THIS GAME BE ON STEAM?
Every once in awhile I look out at the vast internet and see some idiot bitching about how game X or game Y shouldn't be on steam because it "devalues the platform" or "isn't a *real* game" or some stupid shit. That guy is a moron, but in the case of Putt-Putt Goes to the Moon, he's a moron on multiple levels.

First of all, steam a service used by a wide base of people, including parents who wish to purchase wholesome software for their very young children. There is absolutely no reason games like this one shouldn't be available to them, as they're just as important a customer as the guy who has 600 hours logged in Team Fortress 2. Appealing to a wide base of consumers is rule number one of being a distributor on steam's level!

Secondly, games like this aren't just old edutainment titles, they are legitimately important pieces of cultural history. Thousands upon thousands of people probably could point to this one as the very first "video game" they ever played, back in their elementary school's computer lab, or on their dad's PC kept off to the side of the dining room. That such a touchstone of gaming history can be played exactly as it was when it first came out in 93' on mondern machines for less than 10 bucks is really kind of incredible when you think about it, so fuck the haters this should absolutely be on Steam and every other modern digital distributor.

CREDITS:
THE FOUNDER OF THE FEAST:

Magflare: He gave me this game waayyyy back in 2014 when I set out to burn through 8 of these fucking things! And I made him wait the better part of a year because I'm a jerk. And also was burned out on edutainment adventure games after doing so many back-to-back. But mostly just a jerk.

SKYPE BROS:
FanboyMaster: "SEX ROBOT SEX ROBOT"
Nodal: "When you get back to Earth you're gonna find out that everyone was fuckin thrown off it"
Patito: "Wow..."
Smiler: "Is that what you call it, nowadays."

NON-SKYPE BROS:
Trar: Showed up in the hitbox chat, and kept a stiff upper lip when I sadly revealed that I was too incompentent to get a proper capture for it working! Sorry man
Everyone that Posted: As always, I always love it when people post in my threads! Gets me RIGHT THERE, you know?

AND FINALLY...
YOU: Thanks for watching my dumb videos! According to my mostly useless youtube stats, this series wasn't the most watched, but whatever man, I had fun doing it, and I hope you had fun watching it!
