Dangeresque Roomisode 1: Behind the Dangerdesque is a Point-and-Click Game released as a Flash game on December 1, 2008, with Dangeresque, the crooked cop portrayed by Strong Bad in Homestar Runner's Dangeresque films, as the lead character. The game can be played here.
In the game, Dangeresque is trapped in his office and must put together a case file containing photographic and physical evidence, and stamp it solved, despite not having any evidence, ink or even a "SOLVED" stamp.
This game contains examples of the following tropes:
- Affectionate Parody: of LucasArts era Adventure Games.
- Fission Mailed: The game over sequence can be interrupted at any time with a mouse click which will bring up an "Or Did I?" screen. Clicking once again will reset the game to the point before the action that got Dangeresque arrested.
- Forced Perspective: Dangeresque tries to force perspective to make it look like an object on the windowsill is attacking the guy seen in the next building's window. He is satisfied once he uses the shot of the guy on the Kung-Fu takeout.
- It's a Wonderful Failure: Messing up the case file or trying to use or talk to the door three times will result in Dangeresque being put in the "Hoosegow".
- Retraux: The game is done in a pixel art style and features voice clips in a very compressed quality, in imitation of 1990s adventure games.
- Screw This, I'm Outta Here:
- Defied. If you use the door three times, Dangeresque will announce his intention to leave the office. Then the SWAT team shows up...
- Played straight in the ending, though. Once the chief realized the photograph isn't of the crime, Dangeresque says his Catchphrase and jumps out of the window.
- Spill Stain Sabotage: The player can attempt to use the coffee to render the case file illegible, but this results in Dangeresque being sent to jail.
- Vomit Discretion Shot: After eating the takeout, drinking the coffee, and spinning in the chair, Dangeresque turns away from the camera in order to puke into a paper bag.
