Go Fool Yourself!

...is what my friend Dan would say when he pitched this game, over 10 years ago now.

Hi, I'm Josh. This game was made by my friend Dan Power, who I haven’t seen since 2009. This was the last thing he sent to me before he stopped responding to my texts. I’m sharing this now in desperation, I’ve tried tracking him down just to make sure he’s okay and I can’t find him. I think he would have wanted me to release this for him, to share his passion for games. If nothing else, maybe someone who sees this knows him.

Before you play this, know that Dan can be a bit... eccentric. He's an older gamer and he comes from a time and place that had a very specific definition of what a gamer looked like. A lot of his earlier work was just blatant references to other material he enjoyed. But please be patient with him, because past his narrow-mindedness and those dumb "puzzles" that no one would ever figure out if he didn't have a walkthrough in the game is a really sweet old guy who just really likes video games, and I want to find him and make sure he's okay.

If you have any information about Dan, please reach out to me at josh@joshaaronmiller.com.

I was so confused about this game when I found it on Twitter. Why was there a missing persons post attached? What's with the strange way this game seems to be described? Turns out it was all an elaborate setup for layered narratives, a pretty fun dungeon crawler with a very terrifying take on "Death of the Author". 5/5 I closed this game 20 minutes in because it was too spooky for me.
