Beavis and Butthead

In Virtual Stupidity

"Video Game of the Year!" - PC Gamer 1995

The game lets you aid television’s dumbest duo in their bungled efforts to impress Todd and win membership into his gang of juvenile delinquents. The plot takes them through a tumultuous journey which revolves around a typical Beavis and Butt-head plot. Before the game is over they will crash a Save-the-Whales meeting, play with electricity, escape from jail and make 1,001 jokes about human anatomy and bodily functions. In the end you have a very funny game.

Electronic Gaming Monthly - 1995

It just doesn't get any better than this!


PC Gamer - 1995

No, we're not kidding. Beavis and Butthead in Virtual Stupidity really was the best adventure of 1995. And we're not just saying that because we're big fans of Mtv’s willfully stupid and endlessly hilarious delinquent duo. It's also because Beavis and Butt-Head does so very well at what it sets out to do.


PC Gamer - 1995

The humor of Beavis and Butt-Head is not for the faint of heart and neither is their new graphic adventure Beavis and Butt-Head in Virtual Stupidity. Even so, these MTV junkies' new title may be one of the funniest games to ever hit store shelves.


Mike Judge, USA Today - 1995

What's cool about it is you get to control Beavis and Butthead. It looks and sounds very much like the show, only you’re involved. "It's kind of a cool"


Computer Player - Feb 1995

The actual interface is surprisingly good, similar to Lucas Arts Full Throttle, making game play smooth and intuitive. All actions. from grabbing items and inventory management can be smoothly performed with the mouse. Beavis and Butthead will definitely appeal to fans of their show for the humor aspect alone.
