Looking for a game

Here's the thing. I don't remember the name of this game, or very much about it. All I remember is that it was an old, cartoony type game. And what I do remember about it is that there was a blue fountain, I think in the shape of a mermaid (topless) and you pressed one of her nipples to turn the fountain on. There was also another part of the game where there was a chicken on the ground and you could pick it up by the neck and choke it. Now I know this sounds like a sick game, but it wasn't those were the only two parts I can remember. If you know what this game is, or anything about it please let me know. It's been bugging me for months that I can't remember the title of it (you know how that is)

Thanks

Dugeon Keeper had chickens, but no mermaids. That's the only thing that comes to mind.

well I remember (I think) it was a kind of renissiancey based game (thatched roofs on the buildings and such) and I remember you start out in a courtyard, or a town center, with buildings behind you.

Until you mentioned it I hadn't thought of that. Sure could be. Now is it #3, 4, 5, 6, 7...

no, I know for sure it's not any of the LSL games, I've played all of those. This is an older game. It came out around the same time as one of the earlier LSL games, probably about 5-7 years ago.

That sounds like you just put a few CDs in the blender and hit the button

What was Kings Quest about?

I think I might have downloaded this game off of an old school BBS.

I'm pretty sure it was a similar style of gameplay to Leisure Suit Larry and Police Quest, except you were a prince doing different tasks in order to complete the game/become king/get the girl. It was usually set in a medieval/fantasy environment.

Sounds quite a bit like King's Quest 3: To heir is human. Where you are a prince and you start off as a slave on an evil sorcerer's farm. You can pick up the chicken to get a feather and I think there might be a fountain towards the end of the game. YOu're trying to get back home. There was a town setting at the bottom of the evil sorcerer's hill. DOn't know if this is what you're thinking of or not, but I'd look into these gamse online. Plot sounds like them and so does the environment.

Might it be Discworld. I haven't played it since it came out, but it sure sounds like the right kind of humor. Though I really don't remember the mermaid fountain.

ok, well I looked up Kings Quest and Discworld, and neither are it. I am still searching. If anyone finds a list of old BBS games (Around the time of Apogee and Hybrid) let me know.

Actually, there is no LSL #4. Al Lowe, on completion of LSL #3 promised Sierra that there wouldn't be a 4........so he went straight to 5 but between 3 and 5 came LSL's Greatest Hits.....And Misses (I believe that's what its' called)

Holy Crap! I think I remember this game (or perhaps it was goblins 1). You had to control these goblins and go around and complete certain tasks??!? I had completely forgotten about that game. That was an old one...perhaps I'm thinking of a different one though...I don't remember the one I'm thinking about being a BBS game, it had graphics to it.
