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
Well, its not good in any sense of the word. ...or really done in any sense of the word...but its here.
You get the same ending by dodging the car for long enough and for crashing into it, I didn't have enough time to do different endings with 2 hours.
But yeah, move the mouse to dodge the cars whilst driving home to play the next totally new and original Call of Doodie game!
This was going to be a bit longer, so if anyone wants me to do all that I planned, I guess you could beg me until I do.
Made in Java instead of Klik and Play, because I'm an idiot.
It's been a long time since I'd made a game for GT; here's my homecoming. It's great to be back.
Today, in MANIC SWORD MAN:
You are Jimmy James. Your book has been translated into Japanese, and then that translation was translated back into English. The results were less than satisfactory.
Take out your frustration by chopping up as many of the books as you can. Wade through the wreckage with the ARROW KEYS.
Inspired by my partner's love for the old television show News Radio. Title and game mechanics from the Video Game Name Generator website. Some sounds made with the free application bfxr, while others were made with my voice and a crappy dictaphone recorder. SDK was MMF2.
