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!
