About the Story
ToiletWorld: it's time to enter... the world of toilets.
58th Place - 22nd Annual Interactive Fiction Competition (2016)
The Breakfast Review
All right. So the world is full of, ah, plumbing fixtures (toilets) as well as being a giant plumbing fixture (toilet) and the room descriptions are full of "to do" notes, which I believe are meant to be humorous rather than actual "to do" notes. Even if the things to be done haven't been done. I have nothing that wants doing, and exploration feels just slightly more interesting than watching paint dry, but less than watching paint peel off the walls.

Here I sit, brokenhearted by a game which utterly failed to bowl me over. I only logged a few minutes before realizing there was squat to do; the author seems to have pooped out before adding most of the content, and what little he did manage to push out was pretty corny. The game is flush with mentions of toilets-within-toilets, like turduckens, and they appear in loo of any actual story, jokes, or puzzles.
In a word, it's shitty.
This is a blatant troll game, yes. But it's an excellent troll game, with a fair amount of care put into making sure that you can do what there is to do in the game--which is enter various toilets--and that you get to see the prose in it--which is full of self-conscious TODO notes, rooms named things like "FirstToiletFirstToiletFirstToilet," and sentences like "You can see mineral deposits on the walls, like the sort of mineral deposits that would result from years of flushing hard water with a mineral content at or above 0.5g/L, which is the typical sedimentary limit for residential water supplies."
Not on the level of Pick Up The Phone Booth and Die or Annoyotron, but a worthy addition to the troll genre.
Z-machine games are less and less frequent each year, because Inform defaults to glulx. This comp still had several z-machine games though, but I'm not sure why.
Anyway, that means that the author of this game has probably had Inform for a while. Given that that's the case, this is a pretty disappointing troll game. There are only a couple of rooms, few items, etc.

The worst IF ever? by theqbasicwizard
I'm wanting to do an episode for the podcast that deals with only the worst possible IF games ever programmed? You know the kind that if you would have played it for another minute longer, that you would have never played another IF ever...
Brilliant trolling games by Not Troll
Some games are just that bad, some are so bad it's good, and a few are obviously trolling. Yet, are there games that troll so much that they start to be brilliant? Or even those that seems to be trolling that turn out to be brilliant...
