That’s a long quiz. What did you score?
A little over 16%.
One of the accomplishments that makes me most proud is beating this game. That makes me pretty geeky.
It’s a text based game, you type commands such as “pick up the thing your aunt gave you which you don’t know what it is” and “head south”.
On my first try I didn’t even make it out of bed. “Examine [stuff]” is also a good command, and if you type “i” to check your inventory you will find that you have “no tea”.
I’m so confused
The game also expects you to pick up everything you ever see, solve a seventeen part puzzle involving sticking a fish in your ear, and know to feed a dog a sandwich near the beginning of the game, so that when you travel back in time later the dog doesn’t try to eat you.
Can you see why I’m proud I beat it.
Holy cow, Manalive… I’ve been playing that thing for 20 minutes… It’s so hard XD
I didn’t make it past the bulldozer.
I need to send it to my brothers. It’s the kind of thing that they would really enjoy.
How in da world do I NOT GET HIT IN THE BACK OF THE HEAD WITH BRICKS… This game is making me rage as hard as Mirror’s Edge did…
Okay I found the “Hints” list… I’m good…
Forget what I said about scoring 16% on the Geek Test, I took it again and scored 19.37%.
It’s rather reminiscent of King’s Quest.
The Hitchhiker game, that is.
I’m trying to speed run it. I’m 353 moves into my third attempt. The first attempt ended with a brick.
I’ll have to try again later.
I won’t get the same satisfaction as most when I complete it by slightly cheating, but I am only cheating when I am totally stuck… It’s so rage inducing lol
You’ve ruined my life Manalive Smith. I hope you’re happy. I’m done.
I spent a lot of time reading through the clues, so don’t feel bad. I’ve been killed by a bug bladder beast twice, but that doesn’t restart the game so I’m still working at it.
453 moves in I was wandering around in the dark for a while before accidentally appearing inside my own head. I exploded. I give up for now.
I apologize Dawn, and know that I am happy.
I apparently need to play more of this game.
