Pajama Sam: Life Is Rough When You Lose Your Stuff! (also known as: Pajama Sam 4) is a computer game for children.[3][4]

Sam's Pajama Man comic book is lost in a strange world, where he meets a dirty sock who needs to get to his other sock, who is clean. He goes on a journey to find a way to clean the dirty sock and to find clothes (a shirt, shoes, and the socks) to get to Grubby Corners Mall, where his comic has found its way to. In this game, Pajama Sam's voice is provided by Elisha Ferguson rather than Pamela Adlon. This is the only Pajama Sam game without a demo, possibly because the game was only released after Atari's takeover along with Putt-Putt: Pep's Birthday Surprise.

Plot[edit]

  • Since 1992, Humongous Entertainment has been a main stay of entertaining and educational games for children. Millions of Moms and Dads have shared the adventures of Pajama Sam, Putt-Putt, Freddi Fish, Spy Fox and all the great Humongous characters with their early learners and elementary school age children.

Sam watches Pajama Man on TV. Suddenly he sees a breaking news story that Pajama Man is coming live, in person, at the mall for autographs. Excited, Sam asks his mom if he can go. After she agrees, Sam goes to get his first edition Pajama Man comic book for the autograph. The comic book is suddenly pulled into the big pile of junk and Sam must get it back. As 'Pajama Sam,' he's ready to retrieve his comic book, and enters into the land of junk.

Sam sets off on a series of adventures, in search of his lost comic book — looking for lost socks in Agitator Lake, rounding up dust bunnies at the Dust Bunny Corral, exploring the Spilled Soda Swamp, until he finally enters the Grubby Corners Mall where Dr. Grime is keeping Sam's comic book.

Development[edit]

Soundtrack[edit]

The score was composed and produced by Nathan Rosenberg (The Doghouse NYC Studios). Much time and funds were invested in the music composition to accompany the gameplay. Latin was the desired genre for the game with over 45 minutes of soundtrack and optimum quality using real instruments. The solution to retain quality, time and budget was hiring drummer John Bollinger who used a number of syncing techniques to get the music just right. After two days of composing several soundtracks, saxophonist Tom Glusac was hired to add finishing touches to the soundtrack. Thus all the audio for the game was delivered just in time and under the budget.[1]

Most of these critics put full blame on Atari/Infogrames.
