-- Pulse Entertainment gave out realistic
looking plastic cockroaches and showcased Bad Mojo, a dark,
gritty, CD-ROM game where you play the role of a scientist who won
a grant to complete research to wipe out cockroaches. Early on in
the game, you are dealt a Kafka-esque hand of "bad mojo" and
transmographied into a roach. Your mission is to collect
information while interacting with objects and other animals, and
eventually to gain enough insight to return to a human state,
although there are several possible endings. What makes this game
stand out is its real-life images and careful attention to
interactions and detail. Bad Mojo's creators crafted a highly
realistic environment by researching how roaches move and how
surfaces become dirty. Pulse has made a 4 MB demo version
available through its Web site.
Being a smartass beats being a dumb ass...
you should try it sometime.
