Retro-Nemesis is a game that was originally written as a hidden feature on the Get Lamp documentary. It didn't work out that way, so Robb released the game in a more conventional manner.
So this is a story about Robb's IF friends, and as such it's very much an in-community kind of story; you play Robb, who is lured by the diabolical Jason Scott with promises of more screen-time in Get Lamp into a road-trip to set fire to Adam Thornton's second house in Canada. Madcap road-trip hijinks ensue in rapid succession and everything goes to hell, with the barest of nods to interactivity.
If you're a fan of Robb's writing in general, this is an entertaining few minutes: it's all over-the-top Achewood-esque capers, viewed through a thick haze of sex, booze, retrogaming and sketchy Americana. If that's not your thing, you're probably going to feel a bit like a Mormon at a baccanal, sitting quietly in the corner and waiting for all the stuff you don't grok to be done with.
