A Point and Click game based on Creator/TerryPratchett's book series of the [[Literature/{{Discworld}} same name]], developed by Teeny Weeny Games and Perfect 10 Productions and released by Creator/{{Psygnosis}} in 1995 for the PC and PlayStation. This game in question is ''very'' loosely adapted from ''Discworld/GuardsGuards'' with a lot of setting elements from ''Discworld/MovingPictures''. It features the character Rincewind (voiced by Eric Idle) and the Luggage [[ExcusePlot trying to stop a dragon summoned by an evil Brotherhood.]]

* EasterEgg: An ''extremely'' well-hidden one in the Playstation version [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SkCA2yl4MQE has Rincewind claim he wants to be the first person in a game to say "Fuck"]].

* FetishFuel: Ladies of Negotiable Affection, the Amazon Warrior, the Milkmaid (after she amends her assets) but the icing on the cake must be [[spoiler: The Lady stuffing Rincewind down her front]].



* ICantUseTheseThingsTogether: "That doesn't work!" rapidly became the game's MostAnnoyingSound due to it being Rincewind's only response to incorrect item combinations. Fortunately Perfect Entertainment realized this and increased Rincewind's repertoire in the sequel.

* BlingBlingBang: A plot point, the members of the brotherhood who summoned the dragon did so using golden items. Each of them as one, some overall common [[spoiler: ( A golden tooth, the bells on Chucky's hat)]] and others not [[spoiler: ( The chimney sweep pole).]] At one point you're asked to find them.



** Lampshaded by Rincewind himself if he drinks by mistake the truth serum and start listing all the "horrible" things he did.



* CoolSword: You have to obtain one which goes "doink". You have to find a dwarven smith to tune it so that it goes "ting!" instead. [[spoiler: Not that you get to use it on the Dragon anyway...]]

* CoolSword: You have to obtain one which goes "doink". You have to find a dwarven smith to tune it so that it goes "ting!" instead. [[spoiler: Not that In the climax you get to use it on the Dragon anyway...spell to turn it into a missile... which sadly misses the dragon, forcing Rincewind to go through another.]]



* FetchQuest: Lampshaded at least once in the dwarven mine, where once Rincewind points out that everyone seems to want a favor from him the blacksmith immediatly asks for tankard of elderberry wine for his job.



* KilledOffForReal: When the Dragon goes on a rampage you can occasionally see her attack and burn the various members of the brotherhood. At least a couple of them are implied to have died for real in the last act where you [[spoiler: changed the past so that there's no dragon.]]



* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Act II of the game consists of Rincewind freeing the dragon from the Brotherhood's control- and once free, the dragon decides to take vengeance on the city.

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Act II of the game consists of Rincewind freeing the dragon from the Brotherhood's control- and once free, the dragon decides to take vengeance on the city. Plus, since Rincewind [[spoiler: infiltrated the ritual in the past and was there with the Brothers in order to find out their identity now the Dragon wants to roast him as well.]]


Added DiffLines:

** Nearly once per arc Rincewind will start badmouthing the Dragon... who appears in the same room as him, ScareChord included as she interrupts Rincewind, who promptly tries to correct himself.
** Once per episode Death appears near Rincewind to taunt him as he's doing something incredibly dangerous or stupid, like dangling from the top of a clock tower or putting a keg of powder in a chimney. [[spoiler: When Rincewind is seriously risking his life fighting the Dragon in the end he's nowhere to be seen... and finally arrives after everyone else has left, complaining and stating that it was not his fault.]]

Added DiffLines:

* BreastExpansion: The maid in the psytrickiatrist undergoes one between acts 2 and 3 by using "silly-cones implants". Namely, by putting cones taken from the nearby troll's body in her bra. The whole thing is actually lampshaded by Rincewind.


Added DiffLines:

* ChainmailBikini: The Amazon woman wears one and even refers to as such, stating that's quite unpractical and that it keeps it up due to the pressure: [[AllMenArePerverts Everyone's eyes are on it.]]


Added DiffLines:

** Access to Vetinari's palace is gained by causing the two guards to quarrel and hit each other.


Added DiffLines:

* CoolSword: You have to obtain one which goes "doink". You have to find a dwarven smith to tune it so that it goes "ting!" instead. [[spoiler: Not that you get to use it on the Dragon anyway...]]


Added DiffLines:

* [[DirtyOldMan Dirty Old Woman]]: Nanny Ogg will often flirt with Rincewind and request a kiss from him. [[spoiler: You have to comply at least once to obtain her truth serum.]]
* DisneyVillainDeath: [[spoiler: You sent the Offlian Monk to one with a carpet.]]


Added DiffLines:

* EekAMouse: The reason why Rincewind cannot enter the wine cellar at first.


Added DiffLines:

* ExtremeOmnivore: To complete the final act [[spoiler: you have to feed Mambo the Swamp Dragon with several things including charcoal, soot and a lit stick of explosive.]]


Added DiffLines:

* GagBoobs: There's some boob-related humor in this game, including Big Sally's incredibly spacious bosom, the wannabe actress who augmented her bustline with a troll's fragments and the Lady herself hiding Rincewing in her cleavage, much to his pleasure.
* GiantSpaceFleaOutOfNowhere: The [[BrickJoke giant one-hundred eyed thing]] randomly met on a tropical island on your way to the edge. The Lady pulls a literal DeusExMachina and scolds the Fate for using it before releasing Rincewind.


Added DiffLines:

* LadyLand: Both the Braggart and the Sailor mentions a land inhabitated by Amazon Women. [[NoodleIncident Details are scarce,]] [[StrangeMindsThinkAlike but both tales involves custard and tea.]]


Added DiffLines:

* LookADistraction: First with a huge, purple thing with a hundred eyes behind the Archcancellor [[spoiler: [[BrickJoke which turns out to be real later]]]] and later in a puzzle in the Broken Drum where you have to trick the braggart into drinking a spiked ale.


Added DiffLines:

* MarshmallowHell: From the Lady herself. Rincewind is quite reluctant to leave.


Added DiffLines:

* MsFanservice: The Red Sonja lookalike.
* NeverSmileAtACrocodile: Offler the Crocodile God is much crocodilian in this game. It's also implied that the river at the bottom of the gorge where his temple is located is infested with them.
* NeverTheSelvesShallMeet: In the past you can stumble into a drunk Rincewind in the park and even have to interact with him.


Added DiffLines:

* OptionalSexualEncounter: You can seemingly have one with Big Sally if you bring her certain things. [[spoiler: Subverted, her "special" consist in an excellent... custard.]]


Added DiffLines:

* RedHerring: Some of the items you have to recover aren't actually useful at all in your quest.


Added DiffLines:

** Also custard is mentioned (and sometimes, used) in the game quite a lot. [[spoiler: You even have to use one of Nanny Ogg's love potion-laced custard pies to solve the last puzzle.]]
** People referring to Rincewind's robe as a "dress" much to his dismay.
* VictoriasSecretCompartment: The Lady rescues Rincewind from the Thing by hiding him in her godly cleavage. Played for laughs with Big Sally, who's seen tucking down there a coconut, an egg and a whole sack of flour.
* ViolationOfCommonSense: Among others, you have to deliberately start a fight in a pub full of nasty-looking barbarians, dangle from a flagpole at the top of a tower and put a keg of powder in a fireplace.

Added DiffLines:

** The back of VideoGame/DiscworldII's CD case even had the answers to several of the first game's puzzles.


Added DiffLines:

* PixelHunt: Used for several puzzles and [[GuideDangIt often far more obscure than they should be]] thanks to the heavily pixellated graphics. Also used in the sequel, but made less obnoxious due to the higher resolution sprites.

* HeyItsThatGuy: Tony Robinson can be recognised as the Cut-Me-Own-Throat Dibbler, the Beggar, a City Watch guard and more.
** Eric Idle also plays Rincewind.

Added DiffLines:

* LaxativePrank: More like Prune Prank. In order to get the Fisherman's belt with the Golden Buckle, Rincewind must put prunes in his caviar. Of course, he needs to put a tied-up octopus in there first...
