Dr. Dumont's Wild P.A.R.T.I.

by Muffy Berlyn and Michael Berlyn

Surreal
1999

About the Story

"Failing physics--again--would be traumatic enough. But now, you're trapped inside a Particle Accelerator and Reality Translation Integrator, the product of mad genius meeting mixed metaphors. Originally designed to help the human mind understand particle physics, the sub-atomic world inside is a strange blend of mysticism and science, of Zen contemplation and Marx Brothers movies. Dr. Gregory Dumont has sucked you into his P.A.R.T.I., but it's no picnic in there. This is a new version of the original, ported to Inform and much expanded - twice the size of the original."
[--blurb from The Z-Files Catalogue]

Off-Site Reviews

SPAG

This is a puzzlefest wrapped up in an Einstein poster. It looks cool and makes you feel smart, but ultimately, it's just a paper-thin diversion. (Andrea Crain)

SPAG

Dr. Dumont indeed hasn't got the vast philosophical background Trinity possesses; in fact, it's entirely light-hearted. This doesn't mean, however, a quality decrease: splendid writing, consistently high level of detail, carefully implemented characters, and a state-of-the-art hint system are a sufficient warranty against disappointment.

Xyzzy News
Good plot, great use of comedy, relevant puzzles that don't require countless saves, and "feelies". (Joe Merical)
