in which I break this game's perfect record, October 21, 2019
by matt w (Matt Weiner) (Burlington, VT)
This is a blatant troll game, yes. But it's an excellent troll game, with a fair amount of care put into making sure that you can do what there is to do in the game--which is enter various toilets--and that you get to see the prose in it--which is full of self-conscious TODO notes, rooms named things like "FirstToiletFirstToiletFirstToilet," and sentences like "You can see mineral deposits on the walls, like the sort of mineral deposits that would result from years of flushing hard water with a mineral content at or above 0.5g/L, which is the typical sedimentary limit for residential water supplies."

Not on the level of Pick Up The Phone Booth and Die or Annoyotron, but a worthy addition to the troll genre.

A troll game, written in z-code, May 9, 2017
Z-machine games are less and less frequent each year, because Inform defaults to glulx. This comp still had several z-machine games though, but I'm not sure why.

Anyway, that means that the author of this game has probably had Inform for a while. Given that that's the case, this is a pretty disappointing troll game. There are only a couple of rooms, few items, etc.

Exactly What You'd Expect, November 17, 2016
I realized from the get-go that this was likely to go straight down the tubes, but I was vaguely intrigued by the promise of sophomoric triviality. I moved around a bit from toilet to toilet, came to the conclusion that there was nothing more to see here, and slapped a score on it. I was slightly amused so I gave it a 2/10. I don't even know how to use Inform 7 and I'm pretty sure I could have tossed this together in about 15 minutes. On the other hand, it appeared that the author continued to develop the game long after I had finished playing it. I think I could say that playing this game kind of made me feel like crap; so I guess in that respect, it was quite effective, even genius perhaps. Nah...

I have to pipe up about this one, October 1, 2016

Here I sit, brokenhearted by a game which utterly failed to bowl me over. I only logged a few minutes before realizing there was squat to do; the author seems to have pooped out before adding most of the content, and what little he did manage to push out was pretty corny. The game is flush with mentions of toilets-within-toilets, like turduckens, and they appear in loo of any actual story, jokes, or puzzles.

In a word, it's shitty.
