Humongous Entertainment's Putt-Putt, Pajama Sam & Freddi Fish DOS Classics Brought To Steam

Humongous-Entertainment-Back-Catalogue-On-SteamIf you grew up as a kid in the nineties, the term edutainment will no doubt ring a few bells. Many software publishers decided that there was a huge gap in the market for video games to serve as a way of learning. While most of titles falling into this genre were a chore, Humongous Entertainment's efforts to create child-friendly adventures had a last effect on all of us - something we can now relive through Steam.

Just this week Humongous Entertainment decided to revive their back catalogue and make it available on the digital distribution service. This includes titles such as Freddi Fish and Luther's Maze Madness, Putt-Putt and Pep's Balloon-o-Rama, and Pajama Sam: No Need to Hide When It's Dark Outside. What's great about these re-releases is that they appear to remain intact and identical to how they looked back in the day on DOS and/or Windows.

Costing around £2.49 each (during the on-going sale), there are currently six titles up for grabs with another 21 on the way over the coming weeks. So whether or not you fancy getting nostalgic, or would rather train your young ones on true classics, be sure to check out these iconic edutainment titles.
