Don’t Eat the Mushroom… what can I say, the game is hilarious, unexpected, and a ton of fun to play. It’s guaranteed to be different from just about anything you’ve seen before, and if you’re anything like us you’ll be cracking up the whole way through. I don’t want to give away too much because of spoilers, but I will say that it’s probably ok to disregard the advice in the level title. Go give it a shot!
Most of the time the games we post on “What We’re Playing” are simple browser based games, and don’t require complicated setup. This one is a bit of a doozy, but trust me it’s worth it. First go and download and install Knytt Stories, which is pretty badass in its own right. Once it’s installed go and grab the user generated level Don’t Eat the Mushroom by Uncle Sporky. You might have to sign up to get on the forums, which also sucks. Once you’ve downloaded the level use the built in installer to pop it into Knytt Stories, and enjoy! There are several endings, so you might want to play through several times.
Of course, if you like it there are many other user made levels for Knytt Stories, but I’ve yet to find one as awesome as DETM.
