These games showcase the first examples of the humour and writing style that Croshaw became known for in his AGS years. The games were created before Croshaw had his own site and thus were hosted on the site of a friend; once that site went down, they were sent to Croshaw's Fully Ramblomatic site. A text adventure game, Arthur Yahtzee: The Curse of Hell's Cheesecake, was also created but is not considered part of the actual trilogy. He is told that he is to become the . In Rob Blanc I: Better Days of a Defender of the Universe, he is sent to an alienspaceship to find out what happened to the crew, and prove himself as a worthy defender of the universe. While there, he notices a green- haired teenage male, Paul Grewald, following him, and inside an elevator both of them find that they have been sent into outer space. Landing on an alien world, they find that the natives believe them to be the ones prophesied to cure a great plague which is enveloping the planet, and are thus forced to live up to the legend.
Their first mission soon comes: somebody is removing all of the time from the universe, and Rob and Paul must find and assemble the parts of the Reaman Time Drive (RTD) to find out who is responsible for it. All of the games follow the same point- and- click interface typical of the AGS engine they were built on, with most of the puzzles involving the finding of objects.
The series' humour is inspired by The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy and Red Dwarf. The Trials of Odysseus Kent. In 2. 00. 2, however, Croshaw wrote and released The Trials of Odysseus Kent, inspired by the Monkey Island series.
The game follows Odysseus Kent, a mysterious drifter and treasure hunter who dresses like he's from the Regency era. Kent has come to a small village community in search of a bonanza called the Lost Treasure of Randolph Mc. Boing. The game was to be continued in a sequel entitled The Rise and Fall of Odysseus Kent, however Croshaw lost interest and the game remains unfinished. The game is both a parody of and tribute to science fiction games and films.
For instance, a major plot point is the deployment of Redshirts (an obvious homage to Star Trek's disposable red- shirted crew members), who are used as cannon fodder when the situation planet- side is deemed too dangerous for the ship's crew.
