Baf's Guide


A brief and dreadful game designed as a joke on some occurrences in rec.arts.int-fiction in early 2002. Unlikely to appeal, or even make any sense, to anyone who was not following the newsgroup at the time.

A joke knockoff of a joke knockoff, July 27, 2016
In 2002, there was an author who became angry at the interactive fiction usenet community. They started trolling the forums, and used several fake accounts to pretend they were starting a company called Santoonie, and that they were working on an incredible game called Amissville for TADS.

The game was released, but was buggy. Someone later made this game, which Santoonie denied ownership of. It's just 4 rooms with one instant death and one way to get trapped in a dark room. It is really poorly done but funny at a few points.
