>INVENTORY - Paul O'Brian writes about interactive fiction

I'm pretty sure that Comp00ter Game wants to be a parody of bad games, or bad authors, or something. At least, let me put it this way: I really really really hope that's what it wants. It is (again, I hope) far too bad not to be intentionally bad. You know, misspelled words, broken code, leaving debug mode on, that kind of thing.

Here's the thing about satire, though: you can't satirize stupidity just by acting stupid yourself. You've got to have something, somewhere, that indicates that you and your target are separate things. Otherwise, it's kind of like the prose equivalent of imitating somebody's words in a high, nasally voice. That's not satire. It's not even funny. It's just sort of irritating.

This game is a weird joke, but I didn't find it funny.
