The Man from Fugue State is a traditional point-and-click adventure game by Salvador Haggini (aka Graham Nichols), set in the Wild West, charmingly illustrated with plenty of puzzles to solve and lots of humour. The game is free to download at, with lots of Western style music tracks sourced from the internet including 3 of my own tracks from Soundcloud. See also reviews at and
