In solving this game I found it necessary to replicate much of its logic in programs of my own to provide a more sensible search space, but even this was not enough, because the items the Large Machine generates can be transformed by other means.
In sum: very silly, incredibly complex (and breakable if you try to make things too degenerate), and probably unsolvable by the unaided human mind. I enjoyed this game a great deal, but I have an unholy love of wordplay. Everyone else, beware - but at least admire it from a safe distance.
This game is one of those rare ones (such as Hard Puzzle 2) where decompiling is worthless. In this case, the text of the game is literally split into two interleaving fragments, so that no whole words remain.
You have a huge anagram machine which makes anagrammed words out of anything you put in it. The results can be used, eaten, modified, entered, etc.
There are a lot of rough edges in the implementation, which is part of the overall effect. I don't know of anyone whose solved it. I got very far this time, but I forget how to do all the puzzles I had solved when I tried this last year. I'd love to see a team of people on a forum solve this one.

Solved without Hints by joncgoodwin
I'm very interested in hearing truthful accounts of at least somewhat difficult games (or games that don't solve themselves at least) solved completely without recourse to hints, walkthroughs, etc.
