I tweeted this, but if we get anyone that registers between now and the end of the year I will give them a Steam key. (And if you don't have one already just lemme know.)

Are you looking for an adventure game completely out of the ordinary? Take a look at Cryptozookeeper.

Cryptozookeeper follows a guy named William Vest, who makes a living by delivering more or less lugubrious packages to more or less lugubrious people. It all starts with a job where he has to transport a package marked "bone marrow from an alien" to a known criminal. The delivery job goes straight west, and before he knows it, he is in a cell with the body of his best friend. In fact, his day will be even tougher before the next few hours are over.

There was one word I had to look up in the above:

Definition of Lugubrious. looking or sounding sad and gloomy.

If the game is described correctly, I think delivering more or less suspicious packages to more or less suspicious people" is probably more correct. Jonsey?
