Hey! To start this decade right, we believe Newgrounds should be ad-free for EVERYONE. For this to work, we need people who have the means to become paying supporters. For just $3 per month or $25 for the year, you can help this happen and get some nice perks!

For the month of January we have disabled ads on all E-M content. We need 196 people to reach our January goal of 3,000 active supporters. If we hit that, we'll continue with a new goal in February!

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.

BACKGROUND:

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.
