>INVENTORY - Paul O'Brian writes about interactive fiction

It's been a long time since I've played a Mikko Vuorinen game. The last one was his 1999 comp entry King Arthur's Night Out, which bizarrely recast King Arthur as a henpecked husband in a domestic farce. Some people, like Adam Cadre, apparently found this hilarious, but it mostly left me cold. Still, I was pleased to see Vuorinen's name on a comp entry this year, and playing TAOTPOTUS felt like a reunion with a seldom-seen relative -- even though its behavior was often exasperating, I couldn't help feeling a certain fondness for it, both because of its reliably predictable traits and because of my sense of shared history with it.

[...] The game's basic idea has potential and the room-country design is refreshing, but the game falls to its technical problems. If the author would've given some more time to actual programming and to the room descriptions, this would've been a quite entertaining game. (T. Henrik Anttonen)
