Baf's Guide

This game's premise: find out who you are and who vomited on you. By game's end, you still won't know the answer to either question, but it hardly matters since you and all of your friends will be stoned out of your minds with your choice of drug.

The coding is just as awful as the story. The only implemented scenery items are two toilets, a car, and a cabinet. All other objects are people (your druggy friends) and plot tokens (mostly drugs). All the people are implemented very ineptly; for example, each seems to have only one stock reaction whether you're trying to hit them, kiss them, or give, show, ask or tell them something. The southwest direction is inexplicably absent. All in all, this is a textbook example of why one shouldn't release one's first game beyond your circle of friends.
