You are either Dan Norton or Courtney Cook, two average people who themselves in bizarre circumstances. As Dan, you must fend off the advances of a smitten AI companion. As Courtney, meanwhile, you'll interview with a belligerent, possibly drunk executive.

Fall in love. Time travel. Clean toilets.

The possibilities are endless, except that there are only nine of them, because there are nine endings.


Press X to go on a job interview, and Z to be given a personalized AI.

In dialogue, Z allows you to advance, and X lets you read faster.

Ridiculous Text Adventures combines two games I developed as Christmas gifts. Each game functions a conversation with extensive branching dialogue and several endings, and both were made in under twenty-four hours with the goal of making the recipient laugh. The first went to my then coworker, Dan Norton. Along with concrete things like quadcopters and video games, Dan listed 'nice people' as one of his interests for our office secret santa. So I built him an artificial nice person. The second was a gift to my sister. She's been looking for a full-time job for a bit, so I pitched her the game as 'interview advice.'

If you'd like a personalized text adventure, PM me and we can talk pricing.

[Short Summary:Too short of a review to recieve one]

It knows I love Magic: The Gathering...it is a time traveler game thingy!! I love this thing, this parabolic thought that makes the space cheese continuity grovel monster's nose tickle with delight!

Marry me?
Yes, no, or who needs marriage when we have open relationships?

The End

A fun story game

I really liked the ways to get the different endings, it was a little short tho, also no, i chose the gummy bears.

I need more, so much more...

Glad you enjoyed! I'm currently working on the full version of When Goats Join Cults, which has a ton of ridiculous dialogue. I'll send the Steam link your way when it goes live.
