IF Comp ’08 Review – Hardy the Bulldog and Renee Choba’s Snack Time!October 4, 2008
Despite my doubts as to Hardy the Bulldog’s actual contribution to this game, I am not yet disposed to despise it (blinking the flowing slows!), because at least it isn’t called Gossamer Albatross: Eternal the Memories in Form of Game (Sincerity Version). I shall play it while noshing cold Del Taco fries. I think that is how Hardy the Bulldog would have wanted it, were he deceased and therefore open to speculation regarding things he would have wanted.
[spoilers begin here]
<RRROWWGRROWL> Your stomach growls.
I like it already.
…oh, wow, it’s all written in dog sentences! The thing you can’t scratch, the room with the food (that is a good room), the long soft thing, etc. This has the potential to get all gimmicky and precious, but I’m rather looking forward to being treated like a dog. People don’t expect too much of dogs.
Arms are like legs but they end in hands and not feet.
That is so true.
…okay, I will forgive this game anything, because I have a chewy dinosaur friend. Do you hear that, world? I have a chewy dinosaur friend! I’m going to go chew it! Right now!
Damn. I don’t know how Renee Choba feels about the homeless, but I’m’a go out on a limb here and say that she really, really, really loves Hardy the bulldog. A lot. A lot a lot. I hope she’ll forgive me for being more of a cat person.
I wonder if anyone’s done a cat game yet. CLAW EYEBALL. ACT NONCHALANT. PISS ON SHIT. Oh, right, I’m supposed to be getting food! From the game!
…I care about conserving energy? I’m a dog.
Okay, yeah, a tad precious, but I enjoyed myself, and if you can keep from getting all cynical-panties about the puppy thing, there’s probably a decent apartment-kinda game in here. Also chewy dinosaur friend. Some things are important.
