Description

Yogurt Commercial II is a pseudo-sequel to Epic Banana's previously released title of the same name. As in its predecessor players take the role of an actor, Tom, in a small commercial, acting out a pre-defined script provided in the Read Me through a series of cues, actions, and dialogue options. A strong emphasis is placed on free will, and so the player has the choice either to obediently produce the intended commercial or embellish and even wreck it as they see fit.

The gameplay in Yogurt Commercial II is similar to its predecessor but has been expanded on significantly. As in the previous game dialogue plays a central role of interaction, however dialogue trees have been done away with in favor of an always available 'menu' system; allowing the player to speak even where not required by the script. A prop box has also been added in the corner which can be rifled through at will in order to embellish aspects of the production, either by altering Tom's appearance or by providing new ways in which to interact with one's surroundings. The director will comment directly on your performance, however, and while he may not mind the addition of a hat or harmless flower protest may be made if a death ray is employed in such an innocuous commercial.

Trivia

The readme enclosed with Yogurt Commercial II describes one of the game's many props, Ron Popeil's Death Ray Lamp, as "Given a .992 death rating by State Og! Put it down and carnage is sure to ensue." State Og was a series of articles published by humor site Something Awful between 2000 and 2005 describing the various exploits of a fictional nation, State Og. In its State Og Report of June 15, 2000 an article was featured entitled "The Things in Your House That May Kill You", which listed a series of household objects and their associated "Death Rating." An object's rating dictated their likelihood of causing a user's untimely demise. The list featured a number of innocuous items, such as a bowl of oranges (.001), as well as the Death Ray Lamp mentioned by the readme. Many of the other props available in the game are also on the list, such as the Cursed Handkerchief (.017), Evil Ventriloquist Dummy (.263), and the VX Nerve Gas Respirator (.952).
