The author of Bored of the Rings and The Boggit strikes again, this time with a point-and-click graphic adventure.
Kingdom O' Magic is a parody of Middle-earth, and although the protagonists (Thidney the Lizard and Shah-Ron the Girlie) and the plot has nothing to do with Tolkien's writings, the environments are very obviously drawn from Tolkien's books.
Personal evaluation: An excellent parody. Great fun with lots of British humour. Sound and graphics are also fine, although the actors could be better.
The above cover is the one used for the US release, while the one at the top of the page is the European cover.
