Baf's Guide


A nice little game with a quirky sense of humor. The premise: You wake up one morning to find that your clothing has come to life. You must subdue each item before you can wear it. Easy but enjoyable.

-- Carl Muckenhoupt

SynTax
This is a very small game with only five locations but it is well written without any obvious spelling mistakes and bugs. To enter into the spirit of the game I would say that I laughed my socks off all through it and was quite disappointed when the game finished at the front door.

A cute little game about mutant clothing, February 3, 2016
In this relatively short game set inside your house, you wander about trying to deal with your clothing that has come to life. You have to subdue and wear each piece to win.

The clothing acts like NPCs, and are pretty amusing. The puzzles are light and I finished in 15 minutes.

The story is simple, the puzzles are simple, the writing is plain, but the game concept and execution is a lot of fun.

Short fun game.

This was a fun little game with plenty of wacky descriptions and puzzle solutions that made us giggle. Quick and enjoyable!

Little sister's review (age 10 years): Awesomeness. I liked it, but it should have been longer!
(Spoiler - click to show)We had a blast being killed by evil socks!

"Underoos" is a nicely-designed game with a silly premise and several clever puzzles. There's not much there, but what is there is fun.

If you enjoyed The Underoos that Ate New York...
