Description

A minimalistic exercise with low aspirations, this simple text adventure casts the player as a man with a mission: to disrupt a dinner party through inappropriate behavior. Curiously, rather than implementing more verbs into the text parser than strictly necessary, the author has chosen to cast puzzle-solving actions as "action items" that the player must invoke, resulting in such curious situations as a player's inventory including "bodily noises" or a "yourmom joke". An unexpected extravagance includes an automap of sorts, an ASCII compass rose at the bottom of the screen always indicating available exits.

The author claims to have created the game under very constrained circumstances, "in 12 hours for an ASCII/text only game jam".
