The sad thing is, I don't think it's a joke. Or if it is a joke, it's subtler and even less funny than Comp00ter Game and Asendent. But if it's not a joke, how could anybody think this game is ready to be played? No, it has to be a joke. A lame, unfunny joke, but a joke nonetheless. It is a joke. Isn't it?

In this game, you are in some of paeduo-roman setting where an Oracle has incited everyone to violence.
This game is known for unfinished room descriptions such as "$$$". There are two npcs that do almost nothing unless you guess the right verbs.
However, the story that is there is interesting.
As to finishing the game...
(Spoiler - click to show)After 5-10 turns, you die. If you type XYZZY, time stops, but you can't win.
There are two ways to win: type Z over and over again, or SING over and over again.
Because of these unusual features, many speculated that this was a joke game. Its hard to know.
