Joke or Learning Experience?, November 3, 2010
by tggdan3 (Michigan)

The game is a short joke game. You forgot to give your game a story. However, I have a sneaking suspicion that the author was learning how to use inform7 and this is what he came up with. The one trick pony doesn't do it's trick well- very little is implemented, and the two items you have walk you through the whole thing. (never mind the walkthrough on the game's main page).

Not particularly funny, not particularly memorable, no value in replay. But maybe that's the point- he forgot to give his game a story too.
