Your Bum is Talking

Download IconDownload (26 kb)

This is the first RON game that is not made with AGS. In fact, it is a text adventure game in which you play the bum. No, not that, I mean the crazy weirdo that seems to have multiple personalities. It's very short, but interesting for the novelty of it all.


As someone who grew up on the Infocom text adventures in the 1980s, I can appreciate the idea of a RON adventure written in text. Unfortunately, the CNCS engine's parser is primitive even by Infocom standards, and it isn't quite up to the task.
Engine issues aside, "Your Bum is Talking" is a solid game, and short enough that the primitive parser won't bother you too much. -Dave
