About the Story

You are George Raft, an employee at a small space trading company on earth. You have borrowed a small trading space craft to visit your girlfriend on Geeron in the Geisti system. The weekend has now come to an end, and it's time for you to get back to earth again.

Sunburst Contamination was intentionally designed to resemble an old Scott Adams text adventure with its limited parsing capabilities.

Editorial Reviews

Primitive but funny, and with fairly challenging and interesting puzzles
I'd say Sunburst Contamination isn't a game for everyone. It also doesn't fit into the procrustean bed of the SPAG scoreboard format; if the latter was applied to it, it probably would receive a much lower rating than I believe it deserves. Thus, let's just say -- if it participated in the IF-Comp, I'd rate Sunburst Contamination at least a six; its spoofing value probably is even higher.
