A perverse adaptation of the Milton Bradley game, Operation. Textfire at its most bizarre.

A joke textfire game about the game Operation!, June 5, 2017

The Textfire Demo 12-pack was released on April Fool's in 1998, claiming to be demos of an upcoming commercial studio called Textfire.

This is a purposefully ridiculously demo of a parser version of the game Operate!, except its set in real life with an intense audience clamoring for you to remove more and more of a person's organs.

It's a short game.

Justifiable Jokes by Walter Sandsquish
So, I download a game and fire up the 'terp. A dozen or two moves later, I discover that the game is pretty absurd and is already finished. Mostly, this makes me roll my eyes, but these made me smile too.
