Hypnospace Outlaw is probably one of the strangest games someone has linked us to recently, it's a '90s internet simulator that will see you hunt down wrongdoers.

It has a new trailer, although I've literally no idea what's going on:

About the game:

Hypnospace Outlaw is a a '90s internet simulator, that requires you scour the Hypnospaceand hunt down wrongdoers, while also checking out a wide variety of weird and wonderful websites, keeping an eye on your work email, and downloading a plethora of apps that may or may not be useful.

As part of your job as a Hypnospace Enforcer, you'll be watching out for copyright infringement, internet bullying and more, with reports and rewards coming direct from the Hypnospace Patrol Department to your inbox. In your spare time, you can customize your HypnOS desktop however you see fit, with a variety of downloads, wallpapers, screen savers and helper bots to keep you company.

It's being developed by Jay Tholen (Dropsy the clown), Michael Lasch and Corey Cochran with a publishing hand from No More Robots (who also helped with Descenders) and it's due for release on Steam later this year. No clearer date has been given yet from what I can see, will keep you posted.

Thanks for the tip, Stuart!

No. Make it stop. Please?

I don't see how anyone who experienced '90s Internet would want to remember it, let alone relive it. Dropsy was great, but I don't think my psyche could handle this one.

Seriously!

What's not to love about 56K dial-up, blinking text, and "Best Viewed with Internet Explorer"?

I remember everything was Active X and used windows media player. I remember using the Active x for mozilla plugin http://www.iol.ie/~locka/mozilla/plugin.htm#download (which didn't work on linux of course). Using firefox on windows back on those days was already a nightmare, let alone Linux.

Wrong decade. ;) Firefox wasn't around in the nineties.

Surely you mean Netscape Navigator, not firefox.

I started using mozilla suite before firefox. Oh man that was a browser that had a UI (orbit theme), and the godzilla logo was perfect. I hate mozilla for dropping the godzilla logo.
