''Adventures in the Galaxy of Fantabulous Wonderment'' is an AdventureGame made by [[Creator/BenCroshaw Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw]] (Yes, again).

Daniel Gordon, an ordinary {{salaryman}}, is ''not'' having a good day. First, he gets caught by his boss playing video games in his work time, then he is kidnapped by a galactic organization to serve as a {{Redshirt}}, and then events conspire to force him to become the new captain of the crew who bought him and to investigate on disappearances that happen in the entire galaxy.

Gameplaywise, the game is quite experimental, combining an AdventureGame with parts from TurnBasedStrategy and Economic {{Simulation Game}}s, and there is even WideOpenSandbox elements.

Note, it's a sequel to the Rob Blanc trilogy, but it isn't necessary to have played them to enjoy this one.
!! This game provides examples of:

* AdventureGame: Being made with AGS, it had to. But there are also other kinds of game in it:
** TurnBasedStrategy: The RPG variant. You have random encounters (and 3 boss fights) that are fought turn-by-turn. You can use your lasers (attack), a missile (super attack), the tractor beam (paralyzes the enemy for 3 turns), the scanner (scans the enemy), or flee.
** Economic SimulationGame: You can earn money by various ways:
*** Trading the main four commodities (weapons, porn, burgers, chocolate).
*** Looking for a fight (either just fighting diverse enemies, or fighting Culthorpes who give special rewards).
*** Salvaging (send a Redshirt on a planet to look for crates to loot).
*** Two of the sidequests give you money too.
*** And you'll need the money to refill your fuel, shields, missiles, buy upgrades to your ship, or accomplish some objectives.
** WideOpenSandbox: As long as you have enough fuel and money, you can go anywhere in the galaxy and do whatever you want.
* AntiFrustrationFeature: The game frequently reminds you to make sure you have enough fuel before going to another planet. If you forget it and try a travel without enough fuel, you'll be rescued the first time. But the second time, it'll be GameOver...
* [[spoiler: AssimilationPlot: The Extranoids' objective.]]
* BlackMarket: Burgers and chocolate are fine to trade in openly, but they don't tend to turn much profit. Trading in weapons and porn is immensely more profitable, but attracts the attention of the law.
* CerebusSyndrome: The game begins as funnily and goofily as the Rob Blanc trilogy. But when [[KnightOfCerebus the Extranoids]] appear, the story takes a much more serious turn (while keeping its humor).
* TheFantasticTropeOfWonderousTitles
* HeadPet: Eric was ''literally'' created to be this (or more exactly, a living wig).
* {{Invisibility}}: Hole, except for his eyebrows.
* {{Jerkass}}: Hole.
* MoneySpider: ''Averted''. When you defeat an enemy, you automatically loot its cargo and get some quantity of a commodity. It is your responsibility to sell it at a trading post.
** And if you fight a Sparkle Crab (GiantEnemyCrab InSpace), you'll take its meat and automatically convert it into burgers.
* NiceGuy: Eric.
* PointOfNoReturn: Once you have [[spoiler: hijacked the last Think Tank, the remainder of the game is plot-driven. You have to play through the game events, incapable to go back to the WideOpenSandbox section.]]
* {{Redshirt}}: They're cloned and sold by the six-pack for use in those missions where horrible death is a very probable outcome.
* [[spoiler: ShaggyDogStory: The Extranoids make the entire Rob Blanc trilogy this by erasing Rob and Paul's memories, then killing the High Ones.]]
* UnexpectedGameplayChange: In the Bloody Towel, you have to play a DDR type game to get the location of one of the Krun scepters.
* UnwinnableByMistake: If you are on a planet without spaceport and you have zero fuel, you're ''blocked''. There is nothing you can do but load a previous game.
** Except if you have {{Redshirts}}. You can send them on the planet to salvage boxes (they sometimes contain fuel). And the game frequently reminds you to make sure you have enough fuel.
