About

Crab Nicholson is a meme based on the American actor Jack Nicholson.

Origin

In 2008, Anonymous posted the following thread on /v/

(link to the 4chan archive WARNING NSFW)
It was about Crab Nicholson’s extreme sleepover text adventures, as the current developers say “the most epic text based adventure of all time”

The videogame boxart was based on the following picture:

The game became quickly popular on 4chan, and soon, some teams actually started developing the game for PC, but got too bored. The original command lines from the team can be found on crabnicholson.blogspot.com

In August of 2009, independent musician Renard composed a theme song to be accompanied with the original game, including a detailed box art:

Nothing was heard from the crabs in the following months, but in January 2010, a new team started developing the game, and on January 27, nearly a year and a half after the original thread, the first beta of the game, built 0,001 was released. The current version as for Thursday the 25th of March is 0.005

The Second Project

Six months after the release of build 0.005, after the lead programmer of Crab Nicholson had left on a hiatus, a new team was formed by a writer from the first team, who decided to continue the development of the game where the first had left off. This new version is currently under development, and will be programmed in a different language than the previous demo, which was made in Game Maker. No formal website has been made for the project of yet, but threads have been posted on 4chan’s /v/ detailing the new project and team, and the creator made a post in an amateur developer’s forum, which can be found at http://www.vidyadev.org/forums/thread.php?id=133

The Game

The game focuses on a person, who comes home after having a hard day of work. You can explore the bedroom. Just when you are going to sleep, Crab Nicholson pops up saying “ARE YOU READY FOR THAT SLEEPOVER NIGGER? FUCK YEAH YOU ARE!” He drags you away to his house, where you can enter his Ultimate lair of awesomeness, and explore parts of his house. The rest of the game is still under development.
