Editorial Reviews

Baf's Guide

A mystery taking place in "post-Hussein" Iraq of a more or less distant future; however, the scenery is so cliched and inexpressive, and does affect the gameplay so little it could be almost any time and any country. If amateurish attempts of writing about a topic the author doesn't understand a thing about don't annoy you as much as they do annoy me, there are chances you're going to like this game; however, speaking objectively, its puzzles aren't the strongest ones, either.

-- Valentine Kopteltsev

>VERBOSE -- Paul O'Brian's Interactive Fiction Page

Between its bugginess, its bizarre design, and its apparent unwillingness to put much craft into its world-building or its futurism, WCTM ends up being a pretty dull game.

A sarcastic political game set in Iraqis future, August 20, 2016

This is a large, spare game where you are sent out to discover who was behind Sadam Hussein and the weapons of mass destruction or the conspiracy.

You wander from embassy to embassy and so on until you discover the truth. The game is frequently under clued, and the writing is often spare. It makes its point, but in an ineffective way.

Is that humor?, October 31, 2007

Related reviews: IF Competition 2004

A satirical game about the current Iraqi war. Pointless puzzles, confusing map and very peculiar humour. Wait a minute... That is humour, isn't it?
