The Obscene Quest of Dr. Aardvarkbarf

by Gary Roggin

Collegiate/Time Travel

About the Story

The story so far: You were a undergraduate in Temporal Physics until a dalliance involving a stolen time machine and cheap champagne got you expelled. Now you work as an assistant to Dr. Bignose, chair of the Temporal Physics Department. Although today's Saturday, he called you at the ungodly hour of noon to do a teeny-weeny favor: come onto campus and deliver an envelope to Dr. Aardvarkbarf. He's sure it won't take too long.

>INVENTORY - Paul O'Brian writes about interactive fiction

OQDA is a fairly enjoyable college game (with a minor time travel motif) which kept me pretty entertained for the two hours I played it. Of course, this is not to say that the game doesn't have its problems. It certainly does: there are many spelling and grammar errors (though not as many as in Phred Phontious and the Quest for Pizza) and some bugs are definitely still in the game... Also, there are several elements about OQDA's narrative strategies that I found rather grating... Still, with some polishing this game could be an enjoyable vignette.
