A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

!!! Featured in Minnecade at GlitchCon 2017 !!!


The Eyes of Cheatin Hitman is an episodic game designed for the Idle Thumbs Community "Wizard Jam 4"

The game features comedy familiar to listeners of the Idle Thumbs Podcast. The narrative and gameplay are a love letter to the Hitman series, Blendo Games, and Virginia.

By far one of the most fun games I've played in the past year! I am hoping to see future episodes!

Fantastic, from the hip narrative presentation to the fun voice-acting (hipster clown!) and impressive level of incidental detail. The ending was lovely, too.

hahaha, that's very kind of you :) lol, if you found the hipster clown then you really dug deep.

Such a rich and entertaining experience. Great work!
