By - | Views: 29,235

Free game Thursday? Check out Powers in the Basement, a point and click adventure that won't take you forever to get through, with plenty of comedy inspired by the 80s / 90s with a specific sweet spot for LucasArts classics.

"Will Phail is a fifteen-year-old like many others: lazy, spoiled, and phlegmatic. But he has one thing that others lack: he's useless! Experience Will's drama in this short adventure as he searches for his favorite T-shirt so he can hang out with his friends trying to defend his already compromised reputation. Dodge lazy grandparents, mischievous rats, and carnivorous plants, and find the courage to descend into the frightening basement, where powers beyond understanding lurk, waiting to be awakened!"

Check out the trailer:
