A very Veederesque afterlife. A short game, February 14, 2016

This game reminds me of Taco Fiction, if the protagonist passed away. You are with a corpse and have to bury it, but the corpse has something to say.

This game plays around with the format and packaging of IF games, especially standard Inform library messages.

It is quite short, but funny. I had trouble figuring out what to do for 30 seconds in Part ii, but figured it out soon enough.

Very short They Might Be Giants tribute, November 17, 2013
by streever (America)

This is a very short game, created as a tribute to the first track of TMBG's Apollo 18 cd, "Dig My Grave".

It is short, linear, and rather limited, but a fun quick play. The writing is clever and gives a sense of place (Veeder is a very good writer), but the actual game and the mechanics of it are not on par with his other games. If you've never played a game by Veeder, skip this one, and try Taco Fiction or Robin and Orchid first. Veeder makes games with surprisingly deep gameplay, mixed with fun, quirky, well-written text, and this game doesn't show you what he is actually capable of.
