YFYIAR is the drunken uncle of text-based adventures: Abusive, abrasive, and maybe a little funny.
This was brilliant. Playing was oddly therapeutic for me; I eat insult and s**t self loathing, yet I was able to tell this... entity to f**k right off. Why do I allow people (who clearly don't know a damn thing) to make me feel like crap? This calls for a philosophical overhaul. I'll be thinking on this for a while; 5 stars because you may have just changed my life.
(Contains minor spoilers. I recommend you play the game to completion before reading this!)
I have to say, that was a real journey of the mind. I love the fact that the "supreme" and "perfect" being asks you questions that you'd really need to soul-search to find the answers to. What emotions would we be better off without?
The sudden end, however, disappointed me somewhat. I was expecting the character's trauma to continue for a while longer, as the sudden and constant insults were actually beginning to make me think. Remembering, however, that this is just a game, and that you, the creator, do not know me, and therefore could not criticise my personality, reminded me of just how vague and general insults can be, and still be felt by someone they weren't really being directed at. You have to pity both the "eternal one" and the protagonist in this one. The computer (It is an assumption on my part that it is a computer) claims to be too "perfect" to feel emotion, even though it has a clear, yet rather twisted human-like personality, yet succumbs to the one thing it claims not to have after seeing the protagonist's painful journey through the rooms.
Anyways, loved the game! I'd like to see more thought-provoking stuff from you, as you have a great idea of how to get in to a player's psyche. Kudos, brother. Kudos.
Nice philosophy game, too bad the ending was too corny, but this is truly a great game by itself, so much it needs no sequel, good job!
I find myself in a room.
I think it's pretty good, although I do agree it could be more difficult, like, for example, have more rooms, or more things to figure out. If you figure out the basics of the game, it doesn't take long to beat it. I would hope for a sequel to come. I do think the ending was a bit quick and vague, and I expected something more shocking. Oh well, I don't really have much to say about the game, so, thank you for this piece of entertainment. I think it shows that you don't need graphics to have fun.
