Maniacs Make a Modern Mansion

A swimming pool cools a nuclear reactor in the basement. Dismembered tentacles mope in the attic listening to punk music. And a murderous purple meteor sucks out the brains of a bikini-clad babe for no real reason.

That engine also allowed a German schoolboy named Sascha Borisow with limited understanding of English to enjoy an American adventure game.
