You are the verb! One of the more playable Textfire "demos", this game puts you in the role of the word "take" and challenges you to find as many different things you can do as possible. Due to idioms, there's a lot more to do than you might think. Interesting.

An entertaining one-verb joke demo game, June 5, 2017
The Textfire Demo 12-pack was released on April Fool's in 1998, claiming to be demos of an upcoming commercial studio called Textfire.

In this joke demo, you can only use the verb TAKE and nothing else (well, until you meet your wife). This is similar to Morayati's game TAKE, but in this game, it's more of a wordplay game; you try to use as many idioms as you can involving the word TAKE.

If you enjoyed Verb!...

An odd story about a child, a bar, and something hiding in the glass. Does contain sound, recommend checking settings and using headphones for best experience. Mature content. There is only one ending.
