About the Story
In Offensive Probing, you play Martin McSondheim, a post-graduate ensign of the Space Federation who, due to lack of openings, finds himself trying to cling onto a dirty little life on one of the downmarket moons, Triton. In the introduction, Martin is stationed on board the SFS Connery, in which he embarks upon the most incredible adventure of his life.
Offensive Probing is actually an inoffensive little game with some nice little puzzles and some nice little jokes. There are dozens of minor Inform games in the IF archive, most of which are pretty poor; Offensive Probing is in the same class, but it's one of the good ones. Not quite Balances, but I enjoyed it.
It's about the length of a smallish comp game; I finished it in two shortish sessions, spending most of my time stuck on two puzzles. I'll blame the first on temporary stupidity on my part, but I think the game was being unfair in the second case [...]. The plot is entirely linear, but the game does have a reasonable amount of interactivity in other areas.
