In this game your girlfriend from the previous offerings sends you out on a mission to buy the eponymous fermented curd (you'd think after rescuing her more than once in the two previous games she would have gone out to get it herself!)
I helped to beta test this one and I really liked the surreal nature of the game (a manoeuvrable hole plays a large part) as does manipulation of a Heath Robinson type of machine.
There are nods towards a more conventional style of film noir narration (the dude with the cigarette could have come from Make It Good) and a red herring or two along the way. There are other NPCs with whom you will also have to interact to complete the game and they are all well delineated.
I have not come across any bugs in the corrected version and the game is blissfully free of inventory limits and misspellings.
There is also an interesting twist at the end of the game when you have acquired the cheese.
I would thouroughly recommend it although prepare to set aside at least a couple of hours as it isn't easy!
I also wish the angry cheese had more variety; it mocks everything you do, but in exactly the same way at every moment. I only played for about fifteen minutes before resorting to the walkthrough so I could finish.
The endgame was cute, though I was left feeling hungry.
