An adventure game based on Space Goofs titled Stupid Invaders was released in 2000 by UbiSoft. The plot centers around the aliens and their attempts to return to space. All the main characters of the series are playable through the course of the game. The game is notable for deliberately rejecting or distortinc some cliched aspects of the adventure genre; standard adventure game tactics such as picking up, talking to or interacting with anything encountered will often result in instant (albeit highly comical) death for the player character and the need to reload, for example, often with no warning.
