Description of MTV's Beavis and Butt-Head in Virtual Stupidity
GameSpot once again came through with a great (meaning I perfectly agree with) review of this highly underrated, "campy" adventure game: "Parents beware, the two relentlessly infantile voices of a lost generation have made the jump in screen resolution from MTV to your computer.
What's funny is that they don't look any better. In fact, the crudely-drawn stylized artwork of the television series is accurately reproduced on the jagged lines of a computer screen. To complete the effect, Viacom New Media borrowed the original voice talent from the series, which creates a very smooth transition from linear to interactive, and in the process one very funny game.
All you'd expect from the eternally juvenile duo is here: fart jokes, painfully obvious sexual innuendoes, glorification of anything illegal or immoral, and the fruitless pursuit of girlfriends with one-liners such as, "Hey, um, do you like to do, like, stuff?" As with the show, the writers' satirical genius puts these antics into a perspective that makes everything undeniably funny. You appropriately control the two half-wits with a simple set of commands, using a mouse-driven interface that looks and operates suspiciously like a LucasArts adventure game.
In fact, Virtual Stupidity is largely unoriginal in its approach to interactive adventures, and even some of the puzzles are secondhand fare. But that's just not the point here. What makes this game so entertaining (and I gleefully played it through to the end) are the actions and reactions of the intelligence-challenged duo to the people and objects around them. Imagine the two as they interrogate patients on a mentally-deranged ward at the local jail. Or picture the look on Beavis' face as he inflates his shorts with a gas station air hose. Priceless. Some adventure games test your cunning, your skill, and your MacGyver-like aptitude in building a flare gun from toothpicks and oily cloth. Virtual Stupidity does none of the above, but instead thrives as a refreshing, contemporary, relaxing exercise in moronic humor."
There you have it-- one of the best adaptations of a famous TV license I've ever come across. Too bad all subsequent Beavis & Butthead games were inferior to this first release, and even got worse as time goes by. The voice acting (done by all original cast members of the show) is simply superb. Two thumbs up, way up!

Beavis and Butt-Head in Virtual Stupidity is supported in ScummVM, and plays much better then it's original method, on modern pc's it's 50/50 it will run properly at all. but though ScummVM it runs flawlessly without any issues!

Is there a way to enable subtitles? Does this game even have subtitles?

For anyone downloading this you don't actually need to install anything, just mount and launch 'BBGame',
I did have a freeze like Nick explains, but I was able to get it to play past to get to the actual intro by going into compatibility and changing to Windows 98/ME and running as Administrator.
I did figure out how to actually get into the game and all you gotta do his hit ESC and it'll skip the cutscenes, keep doing it until you get to the main menu. You don't need to run this under compatibility mode, but it helps by giving you one less ESC prompt. You can actually watch the cutscenes, but remember to hit ESC when they end, you'll know when.

All I get is a disc image file, which prompts me to burn to disc. Is this what I have to do to play?
