DEVO Presents: Adventures of the Smart Patrol AKA Adventures of the Smart Patrol is a home computer game released in 1996.

It contains many images and themes that DEVO had wanted to include in a movie they developed.

This is a Myst-style first person adventure game but it also includes many more characters than Myst as well as lots of music content and humor. The script had the game divided into "hours,"[2] and was pretty hard to solve (here's a walkthrough) and was not well received. [3] Although EW (Entertainment Weekly) notes:

"You can’t fault Devo’s tech cred: Unlike most rock artists, the band (led by Mark Mothersbaugh and Jerry Casale) was deeply involved in all aspects of the CD-ROM, scripting the story, composing the music, overseeing the graphics".[4]
  • Inscape was founded by Michael Nash, who likes Devo and "transgressive work." [5]
