If you’re like me, then you were raised on the childhood PC games of Humongous Entertainment — from their cornucopia of Backyard Sports titles that etched the name “Pablo Sanchez” into the echelon of all-time great athletes to a huge array of point-and-click classics like Pajama Sam and Sly Fox. Now two of those classics — Freddi Fish 3: The Case of the Stolen Conch Shell and Putt-Putt Travels Through Time — are headed to the Nintendo Switch eShop on January 3rd.

Originally released in 1997 and 1998 respectively, the game provided some of the earliest gaming memories for a host of Millennial and Zoomer children, including yours truly. As someone who still has stickers from Freddi Fish 3 stuck on the walls of her childhood room, these are two titles I’m eager and enthusiastic to pick up, and I hope the whole slate of Humongous Classics will follow.
