Paranoia is a game converted from a short CYOA magazine article in "Space/Fantasy Gamer - Jan/Feb 1987". As such, there isn't much depth... and you can play through the game easily within 20-30min. But sometimes that's all you really want. This is based on the PARANOIA role-playing game, and as such it thrusts you right into this world with little explanation. If you're not familiar with PARANOIA, it's a little confusing - although the game still has some decent sci-fi writing and atmosphere. Obviously its intended audience is fans of the game. I did enjoy how the Inform port does the dice-rolling, and clone-tracking for you. It's really better experiencing it in this format than jumping around in the article itself.

A brief CYOA-style adaptation of a solo adventure (originally printed in SpaceGamer/FantasyGamer magazine) set in the world of the Paranoia role-playing game. Your mission is to cleanse a sector of illegal Christmas activity. Features some randomized combat, but is otherwise basically graph traversal in a dystopian future. May only appeal to people familiar with Paranoia.
