.....What?, January 9, 2015
by Chai Hai (Kansas City KS)
This....isn't a game. It's a ginormous conflobble of a mess.

There is absolutely no plot whatsoever, just a whole lot of random phrases and snippets of could-be games. It was humorous when you read the first page. Then it just kept going and going.....

Yeah, no. Fail.

It's labeled "metafiction".

So....? I read the other review.I know it's supposed to be about games from 2014. So what. Thinking that everyone has played all the games from 2014 going in is a huge what-if. Also it doesn't give any instructions on what you're supposed to do. Just assaults you with text snippets that are completely unrelated and sometimes not in english.

No direction whatsoever.

One would assume not to expect an actual "plot" in a work of "metafiction".

Guess I haven't played enough metafiction titles to know what constitutes a proper plot for a metafiction game.

I was plopped in the game, no direction of what to do whatsoever. Just a bunch of gibberish. No explanation of anything. If this is what metafiction titles are like, I will be sure to bypass them completely. Not beginner friendly at all.
