About the Story

You play as someone who's supposedly consented to test an experimental television, but you don't really remember anything about your prior life. The "box" you wake up in has nothing in it except the television, a table and chair, a remote control, a letter, a post-it note, and you. Ready to do some channel surfing?

A reality tv show parody with some guess-the-verb problems, September 28, 2017
by MathBrush
Related reviews: about 1 hour
In this game, you use a remote control to interact with various tv shows. These include a game show, a survivor-like show, and one I'll leave unmentioned for surprises.

The concept is fun, but the execution combines under-implementation, heavy-handedness, and lampshaded 4th wall breaking that is never resolved as to why it should occur.
