Editorial Reviews

Baf's Guide


Although released days after the rest of the Textfire 12-pack, this is part of the same hoax. Apparently it's based on a true story involving a lunatic who climbed into a bear's enclosure at a zoo. Strange and unsettling.

A hoax demo (RR #6), October 9, 2012
George is an extremely short game set in a zoo. Apparently it was part of a hoax, which explains its duration and abrubt, unfinished end.

The plot involves two friends (or lovers), who appear to be drugged up and ready to embark on a dangerous mission (which is a combination always good for netting one a Darwin award). The game text breaks the fourth wall in one or two places, referring to the non-existent full version.

If this was but the beginning of an author's debut game, George would be a promising venture, but in its existing form this game is not worth the time it takes to download it.

2/10
