About the Story

A strange boy in backwater Finland wants to establish his own amusement park, or so it seems.

This game features a character-driven story, flexible gameplay mechanics, multiple endings and a lack of common sense.

Contains crass humor. And worse.

Great programming, terrible idea, October 7, 2019

It's a real shame. This game has a sandbox environment, reasonable puzzles with multiple solutions, several endings that require completely different strategies and have distinct results, no bugs or typos that I found. Basically, everything you'd want a comp game to me.

The problem is that it's super offensive. You play a morbidly obese teen that is so fat they can eat anything and smash things with their fists. Your eyes and ears are so full of cholesterol that you have to type 'WUOOO' for echolocation every few turns.

There are other instances of, as the game calls it, 'crass humor and worse'. I didn't like that, not at all.

Impressive implementation, crass humour, December 27, 2019
by Stian
Related reviews: IFComp 2019
Fat Fair is really well implemented, with special verbs, alternative endings and several secrets. The main task is rather simple to achieve, while the challenge lies in finding the alternative paths. I was very impressed to read in the Ďaboutí section that this was the authorís first game. However, the humour that is integral to the game did not really appeal to me. I really hope the author continues to make IF games, though somewhat less crass.
