About the Story
"Yes, it's deliberate." [--blurb from Competition Aught-Zero]
53rd Place - 6th Annual Interactive Fiction Competition (2000)
>INVENTORY - Paul O'Brian writes about interactive fiction
For those of you not in the know, apparently eight big movie studios won a lawsuit against a hacker newsletter for posting code known as DeCSS, code that allows you to decrypt the data on a DVD...
[T]his piece of work does virtually nothing to wrap any kind of creative content around the DeCSS code. It's more or less an unadorned room with a stub description, containing two pieces of paper that have the code written on them. That's it. Other than what I just mentioned, it's an Inform shell game...
It's hard to even call CTC subversive, as it is so clearly uninterested in IF and therefore fails to subvert IF in any interesting way... It'll come in handy, though, when I decide to write my own DVD player. That's on my list right behind sewing my own clothes and authoring an IF game with a homebrew parser.

This game had the code to crack some sort of copyright protection (maybe on DVDs?)
It was entered in IFComp to make some sort of message. It's not even intended to be IF.
