About the Story

While the game requires little interaction for the most part, a few commands will be necessary.

Take "--": This will put an object in your inventory.

Use "--" on "--": This will force two objects to interact with one another. (i.e. "Use 'blade' on 'hilt'" would create a "sword")

Look at "--": This will allow you to look at an object.

Go "--": This will allow you to move in a certain direction.

The rest is simply a narrative journey. Enjoy!

The Pleasure of the Text Adventure!, May 3, 2020
by JonQ

Lacanian Journey: It's exactly what it sounds like! Jacques Lacan was kind of a "French Freud" whose controversial psychoanalytic theories were co-opted by literary critics. It's hilarious to read the Lingo of the Literati in the format of interactive fiction. The author of this game has done a beautiful job of turning that stuff into a series of puzzles.

Seriously, this is a nice departure from the typical dungeon crawl or click-the-links-to-change-the-font games (or click to reveal
one.
word.
at.
a.
time!!!).

It actually contains clever and sumptuous writing! The prose is all the convoluted goodness you'd expect from a graduate school seminar in Lit Theory. Yet the game does not merely wallow in such purple prose; it also offers decent hints about what to do.

I have experienced the Pleasure of the Text (Adventure) afresh! Bravo!
