- 169 What hatches from primordial egg. -

- a computer Game by the gentleman Jonathan Kyle Pittman -
- based upon that most commonplace of Books by Howard Philips Lovecraft -
- being a grim and cautionary Tale of Madness and the Macabre -

This is an olde timey text adventure in which you find yourself burdened with the care of the primordial egg what birthed your own universe.  But when the egg begins to hatch, who can say what horrors it might bestow on your fragile human mind?

I'd like to think this game really immerses the player in a Lovecraftian nightmare of horror from whence there is no escape.  It's truly horrible.  I mean really, it's just bad.  omg it's so bad.  please don't play it.  don't play it.  play it

It's like that episode of Futurama where they got a box containing the universe.  And then Fry sat on it.  It's like that.  Except more horrible.

That episode was awesome, so hopefully, by extension, this game will be awesome.

I was amused. Gentleman

However, I was kind of frustrated by having to guess the verb for sleeping.
List of things that did not work:
go bed
enter bed
sleep
sleep in bed
sleep in your bed
get into bed

I know, isn't it just horrible? Well, hello there!

But in all seriousness, though, if you type "?" or "help", it will show a list of all the verbs you'll ever need to use.

I guess I could make "go bed" work, that one feels like it should work.

Yeah, looking at the list of verbs (very carefully looking at the list of verbs) was what let me actually figure out how to sleep. Roll Eyes

I did like the "text effects" at the end of the game. I don't think I've ever seen that before, pretty freaky. That whole sequence was...imaginative. Wink Good job. Gentleman

Absolutely.  Who needs sleep when there's coffee? Shocked

That was pretty much where the idea for the game started.  Then I had to come up with a paper-thin story to support that one moment.  Heh.   Tongue

It should ask "Did you mean 'go bad?'"

And the answer to that question is always "Yes".

Can you finish the game after you go mad? Or is that actually the end?
