About the StoryUnbelievable! You've been buried in the back garden by your wife who's left you for a younger man! Can you get out and get revenge before the soil starts closing in on you?
1st Place - ADRIFT 2nd Three Hour Comp 2004
This game is short, clever, wacky, and gruesome. You are Hubert, a curtain ring salesman, buried alive by your formerly-loving wife, Gertrude. You goal is to escape the grave and teach that woman a lesson?a fatal lesson. And it's a comedy.
Caution: This game contains blood, severed body parts, infidelity, murderous spouses, and a well setup off-color joke. Expect wackiness in some of the object descriptions.
Verb hint: Try using GET instead of TAKE.
-- David Welbourn
Delron Review Compilation
Longer and better for time limited games
As far as time limited game competitions go, this is one of the longer and better written games. It is funny, regardless of the fact that your character is
trying to survive an attempt on his life, and that the milkmanís leg is about to be served for dinner. Unfortunately, the game offers no warning when you are about to die, and youíll do that quite often.
