by MathBrushEverybody Loves a Parade is a mid-length puzzle game in which you are stopped by a parade. You have to explore and scrounge up a variety of items to be able to escape.
The puzzles are old-school flavor; find items by searching or carefully reading room description, use them in unintuitive ways, and do some unmotivated actions. However, it is pretty fun, and I solved a few puzzles without the walkthrough.
The game is implemented well, with a lot of background character.
Many reviews at the time this came out mentioned a big surprise late in the game. The years since this game came out have significantly softened the surprise here (I thought it was going to be the standard 'this was all a dream' surprise, but it wasn't). This gives an interesting commentary on the changes in interactive fiction in the last couple of decades.
There are some lewd parts (a pornographic magazine, some dirty-minded individuals), but overall mild.

While driving across the country, you become stuck behind an immobilized parade in a geologically-obsessed town in the middle of Arizona. Smallish, silly, and well-detailed, with many easter eggs and good background noise. Some people have complained about a certain surprise late in the game, but I enjoyed the way it shook up my assumptions.
