Or rather, has anyone here even heard of it? I can't bloody well remember how I stumbled upon it, and I'm not sure it can be considered some sort of undiscovered gem, but it's just kind of weird how it's just... there. I ask because there's hardly any mention of it elsewhere on the Internet (no Wikipedia entry for instance).

http://www.banja.com

Basically it's a 3D flash adventure game playable in-browser. You control some mute rasta dude who walks around talking to the gibbering locals trying to solve their problems. Unfortunately I could never get far without resorting to some sort of guide. Adding to this was the fact I was trying to play it over a 56k modem that only ever got as high as 28-ish on a good day (and that was before the connection timed out because someone was calling our landline).

Buuuuuuuuuut I suppose it's a good example of how to do episodic content? The basic island hub stays the same, but every month they change up the scenario and the problem Banja has to solve. One flat out bizarre thing was that there would be "DJ sets" occasionally for a set period of time. Mr. Scruff or someone from ninja tune and their music would be playing at a beach party.

I guess, uhh, check it out?
