The Space Bar is a PC game developed by Boffo Games and published by SegaSoft in North America in 1997.


Players assume the role of Alias Node, a detective who is conducting a murder investigation on the distant planet Armpit VI. This comic sci-fi murder mystery begins in a space port at a drinking establishment called the Thirsty Tentacle Bar, and takes the players through eight alien worlds, where you encounter 19 different species represented by more than 40 alien creatures.[4]


The Space Bar was originally scheduled to be published by Rocket Science Games. However, following the complete failure of the company's business and subsequent near-acquisition by SegaSoft in late 1996, publishing duties were transferred to SegaSoft.
