* ReplayValue: A well done example. With the adeventure games, every playthrough changes the puzzle solutions and even the characters involved in some cases.

'''Humongous Entertainment''' (now '''Humongous Inc.''') is a company for children's computer games, which is now owned by Tommo Inc. after Creator/{{Atari}} went bankrupt. Their five biggest franchises were ''[[VideoGame/PuttPutt Putt-Putt]]'', ''FreddiFish'', ''VideoGame/PajamaSam'', ''VideoGame/SPYFox'', and ''VideoGame/BackyardSports'', although they had plenty of other small franchises such as ''VideoGame/FattyBear'', ''VideoGame/BuzzyTheKnowledgeBug'', and ''VideoGame/BigThinkers!'' Humongous was founded by Creator/RonGilbert of LucasArts fame and Shelley Day, beginning with ''[[VideoGame/PuttPutt Putt-Putt]] Joins the Parade''. They became one of the most successful companies for children’s games, especially when their big hit, the ''VideoGame/BackyardSports'', came out, and actually became [[CashCowFranchise the only reason Humongous made a profit]]. They also made ''VideoGame/MoonBaseCommander'' and many ''WesternAnimation/BluesClues''' {{Licensed Game}}s, and their sub-division Creator/CavedogEntertainment made a few non-children's computer games including ''Videogame/TotalAnnihilation'' and its follow-up ''Videogame/TotalAnnihilationKingdoms''.

Eventually, Humongous filed for bankruptcy, and sold all the rights to {{Atari}}, who continued four of the series, but only went one game on three of those four and stopped. The other one, the ''VideoGame/BackyardSports'' series, lasted for several more years, but it too seems to have ended. Three of the games were also ported to the UsefulNotes/{{Wii}} by Majesco, but used [=ScummVM=] (a virtual machine made to run old Scumm-based games) without giving any credit to the developers whatsoever, so it now seems all series have been left abandoned and rotted. The fanbase is still strong, however, and continue to remember the games from their childhood. Many of the company's older games have been ported to mobile devices by Atari and Nimbus Games.

Notably, most of their {{Adventure Game}}s change the locations of the respective {{Plot Coupon}}s each playthough.
