About the StoryA surprising new spin on the "wander-and-wonder" game genre.
A tribute to an obscure early 2000s indie game. Can you guess what it is?

"a thorough and well-executed parody."
The late 90s and early 2000s had a glut of poorly-made FMV games that were funny at the time and hilarious in retrospect. One of the most notorious of them was “Bad Milk,” a bizarre FMV-based puzzle game with an opaque plot and nonsensical puzzles. Like most people who recognize it, I’m familiar with the game only through reviews or playthroughs of the game more than a decade after its release. “Bad Water” is a parody of that game, updated with interactive fiction references.

In both games, there is no text, only videos or audio. You pass out after consuming something bad and must go through puzzles.
The interactivity baffled me here, with spinning icons and bizarre link options.
I don't decide what's interactive fiction and what's not, and I think this is fine to have in IFComp. But I really don't know how to play and find the whole thing pretty opaque.
