Yup, its been awhile but thankfully Lobster Petting 2.0 is back on the desktop as an Apple Dashboard Widget!
Whom to thank? From the original at Homeboy Software comes this appropriate description (and download available for Mac OS Classic):
Looking for the ultimate “Zen” game. The lobster’s back with more petting pleasure than a Funk & Wagnall’s. Get into the 70’s funky groove with all NEW background music and sound FX. More fun than 10,000 monkeys at Wal-mart.
Respect to the Homeboy Software crew and particularly Mojiferous Industries for allowing me the honour of petting the lobster in Dashcode… Do familiarise yourselves with the world leader in binary Dadaism!
