Plan 9 From Outer Space Description

Plan 9 from Outer Space is a point and click adventure game developed by Konami for the Amiga. It was released in 1992 and published by Gremlin Graphics. A DOS version was made but only released in the USA.

The game is inspired by the 1959 Z-movie Plan 9 from Outer Space. It featured footage of famous actor Bela Lugosi interspersed with a double who looked nothing like him. Wood had taken a few minutes of silent footage of Lugosi, in his Dracula cape, for a planned vampire picture but was unable to find financing for the project. When he later conceived of "Plan 9", he wrote the script to incorporate the Lugosi footage and hired his wife's chiropractor to double for Lugosi in additional shots. The double hid his face with his cape to hide the fact that he was not Bela Lugosi.

The game starts when the producer notices that the film has been stolen by Bela Lugosi's double. The player must carry out a detective campaign to find the 6 missing reels.

Absurd situations occur in this game. According to the Zzap! review: "For example, attempting to talk to the man in the cafe comes up with: 'He seems to be engrossed in his food', which he obviously isn't – he's smoking a cigarette!"
