You've been locked in a padded cell for no obvious reason with only a deranged hamburger-eating clown for company. The cell doesn't even have a door. So begins an adventure that will take you to many places including custard-filled caverns, the world's worst Indian restaurant, the planet Venus, and the inside of a cereal packet. You'll meet such strange characters as the peculiar Plugalug, Rampateuay (a prophet who predicts the the things he's just about to do) and the sinister Boss. Can YOU escape from the Crazy Place?
Escape from the Crazy Place is a sprawling Choose-Your-Own-Adventure type game, like the Fighting Fantasy series only considerably sillier. It began in 1983 as an entertaining diversion from mind-numbing lessons. I wrote in an old brown hard-cover 1978 diary with a lot of pages torn out. The book was a minor sensation in the school; it inspired several imitations and I was plagued by requests from fellow students wanting to read it. Sometimes I would lend it to someone and find on its return that several new passages had been added, and occasionally existing passages acquired illustrations. 23 years later I finally finished it. With contributions from more than 30 authors and artists, it is now available in a new TADS 2 version that includes 70 illustrations and over 600 pages!
Escape from the Crazy place was written with TADS 2, and will require an interpreter such as the TADS 2 player's kit or Gargoyle to play. Instructions for playing TADS 2 games can, and links to the appropriate interpreter for your platform can be found here: http://www.tads.org/tads2.htm An expanded TWINE version is currently in the works...
"Like the twisted literary lovechild of Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo and Homsar, Escape From the Crazy Place is quite possibly one of the funniest things I've ever touched!" Ryusui - rec.arts.int.fiction.
"I've been playing your online Escape from the Crazy Place for the last half hour and I have to say it's... well, the best damn thing I've ever seen ever." Sprite - The Adrift Forum.
"The game opens with an NPC hamburger vending clown named Donald McRonald who eventually 'takes two fingers and stuffs them up your nostrils for a joke,' and it deteriorates from there." - Mike Harris, S.P.A.G. Reviews
This year I decided to enter Ectocomp, a yearly Halloween competition hosted by someone in the IF community (yes, I know this overlaps with the IF Comp, I dunno either). You can read more about it here. I downloaded Twine and everything just for it too.
You are a Blob actually wasn't my first game idea (a choice-based adaption of "Jacked Up Jack-o-Lantern" from the Regular Show Trilogy of Terror 3), but an eight-year-old was getting cold feet about entering, so I vowed to make a game so crappy it would make everyone else's game shine like gold! Which turned out to be no small feat, because everyone and their mother entered a game (or two) this year, for a grand total of 24 entries. But I think I gave it a good run.
