Start Here! My question is how can a game like this even get on the store shelf. I'm sure 90% of the games here would be funner than this game sounds. HOW? WHY? PS - Just though I better go check that thats wan't posted on April 1st... EDIT fixed html - Sandman [edited by - Sandman on January 23, 2004 3:28:34 PM]

the only thing I can possibly think of is that the developer sent off a very very early work-in progress they had archived accidently instead of the finished thing, and no one bothered to check it

Thx for the fix... Didn't check that it worked, was still kinda light headed from that article.

I was thinking... If I had this much fun just reading a REVIEW on the game, sounds like a must have...

2 Words:

Gag Gift

Buy one (I would assume there is no copy protection) copy it, give it to your nephue (sp?) who wanted whatever game for his birthday. Tell him you couldn't find it but that this game "looked cool!"

PS - It's still good 2nd time... Got kick out of the "You're Winner!" screen. Seems there about good with grammer as me...

OMFG. Geez, im going to go straight to their publisher and ask them to publish an old game of mine, BIG OL'' BLACK SCREEN. As long as I get the money upfront, I see no problem.

LOL. (In it''s full meaning.)

That probably the worst game ever released by "a professional company". You should really visit the devloper''s site and view their bragging on the few pages that work. The game list is completely empty, and the contact page doesn''t work. My guess is that they''ve gone out of business (which is not surprising).

maybe they had an intractable publishing deadline, so they had to give them an early beta version. i mean, in theory that game could be fun (i mean if it actually worked, and the controls were made better, and all the other stuff was fixed), you never know.

anyone ever play "circus maximus"? that game sounded really cool in theory, but sucked more than anything i have ever played in my life. i actually scratched up the DVD before returning it (i rented it from the video store), so i could get a different game and nobody else would have the pain of renting it after me.
