About the Story

In this short game that attempts to parody the style of author Rybread Celsius, you play as an office worker who just drank some coffee spiked with hallucinogenic drugs. You are overcome with a desire to find the BLUE RASPBERRY!

Off-Site Reviews

What's the point of producing such a thing, especially on purpose? The intro seems to suggest it's hallucinatory, and Rybread games certainly are that, though they don't tend to trumpet the fact themselves. But it's not the terrible spelling that makes them hallucinatory. It's the imagery. Asendent can't compare to a real Rybread game when it comes to startling images, and its imitation seems pale indeed. The purpose of its imitation is a mystery. A tribute to Rybread Celsius. People are so odd.

Asendent took me about 10 minutes, at the end of which I shook my head and got ready for the next entry. Hey, just like a real Rybread game!

I gave up very quickly on this one when I died for no apparent reason on entering the "boredroom" and was "fired to a sinder" by an angry red dragon.
