AA Out of AAAAA, December 16, 2020

If you've read as far as the game's title, you probably have a good idea of what its shtick is. Everything is AAAAAAAAAA. Great minds will no doubt disagree over whether this is a good premise for a game. I, for one, find it hilarious.

That said, I also feel that the humor is severely weakened by a lack of commitment to the central gag. While the game's objects are all AAA-ified, its verbs are not! This leads to disappointingly non-AAAAA situations, such as having to, for example, (Spoiler - click to show)"examine AAAA" rather than "AAAAAAA AAAA" because the latter is not recognized. There are also a variety of default failure responses that have not been translated into AAAAAAAAA.

With a grand total of one room and two important objects, A AAAAA AAAAAAAAA ought to have carefully crafted what minimal content it has. Instead, by neglecting the details, it ends up not taking its own gag seriously enough to really sell it.

Ha, thanks for reviewing this -- had missed this one! It's a fun gag, but you're completely right, the failure to AAA-ify the verbs is a real missed opportunity -- although (Spoiler - click to show)it does appear 'a' is mapped to 'n' so not sure if the author started down this path then changed their mind? The response to X ME made me laugh, though.

Indeed. But I was taken aback that X AA doesn't work - so really, not even all the nouns are AAA-ified!
