About the Story

A sci-fi/pulp satire, extremely brief and slight (it can be beaten in 12 turns) beginning in a cell beneath the house of a mad scientist. The scientist lay dead at your feet, and now you must answer the psychic demands of an evil ham bent on world domination. Along the way, the environment pokes fun at everything from specialty coffee tastes to a small pile of IF conventions.

The most underrated game you've authored by Anya Johanna DeNiro
Interpret "under-rated" however that means to you. Perhaps it's one that's simply not played very much for whatever reason. Or it's a game you consider flawed but still worth playing, or an early effort that you are fond of.
