At a creepy fair, players try to elude a rampaging killer, an Ebola-like plague and a demanding IRS agent. The concept and music are the work of the Residents, an alternative San Francisco band; the eerie illustrations were created by cyber-artist Jim Ludtke. The same team produced the 1994 cult hit The Residents' Freak Show. Midway is a worthy and welcome sequel for players who like their amusements off-kilter. (CD-ROM for Mac and PC, Inscape; $49.95)
