About the Story

"Your goal is to obtain all the necessary signatures on your Student Identification Form and return it to the Registrar's office. This includes getting signatures from your faculty advisor, department chair, dean, the university president, and the U.S. president, not to mention getting your own signature (harder than it sounds). Based at Wesleyan University in Middletown, CT, the game also features speeding Domino's pizza trucks that hinder your safe passage, unusual psychology experiments, and a bus labeled 'House of God' that indeed houses the Famous One." (author's blurb, from The (Other) TADS Games List version 1.2)

Editorial Reviews

Baf's Guide


Yet another silly game set at the author's alma mater. This time, your goal is to get your Student Identification Form signed by five hard-to-reach people. Funny and explorable, with very low in-joke content and some nice puzzles (I particularly liked the way to reach Australia). Has a mild case of the dreaded guess-the-verb syndrome and a maze that you don't need to explore.

-- Carl Muckenhoupt

Xyzzy News
Basic adventuring skills, such as examining everything you come across, and reading the room descriptions carefully, are crucial to your success in MW/PCU, but to the game's credit, it doesn't complicate the matter with excessive verbosity. Players aren't forced to sift through a ton of useless text to discover what they need to know. [...] It's lighthearted, charismatic, and just challenging enough to hold an experienced player's interest while at the same time catering to newcomers.
