About the Story
An execise in fake surreality
35th Place - 10th Annual Interactive Fiction Competition (2004)
>VERBOSE -- Paul O'Brian's Interactive Fiction Page
To borrow a phrase from the game itself: "Rather disgusting dada surealist [sic] foolishness." PTBAD 3 offers a badly-spelled, creakily-coded trip through what purports to be someone's mind, perhaps someone who was the victim of a severe closed head injury. It's got a maze, toilet humor, and a complete lack of proofreading. It's quite a waste of time, though it's short enough that it at least doesn't waste much of it.

This game, according to the author, was intended to come in exactly second to last place, which required (he said) surreal puzzles, misspellings, and a barely interactive NPC.
This may be tongue in cheek, but they have truly created a terrible game here. It is bad on many levels, including dumb implementation errors, undercluing, and misspellings. The author has truly succeeded at their goal.
The author's note: "Don't understand the point that this game is getting at? Thats ok, I don't either, and I wrote it!". Yeah, it's one of those. You're "in someone else's mind", wandering around without a clue nor a walkthrough.
