You Find Yourself in a Room
YFYIAR starts off like any standard escape-themed, text-based IF experience before things get weird. As expected, you type in one or two words, such as LOOK or OPEN DOOR, to interact with your environment. The computer narrator is somewhat helpful at first, but as you play, the comments begin to get a bit snarky and insulting regarding your perceived human inferiority. This becomes more and more blatant to the point of being darkly comedic. Soon it feels like you're in a text adventure from hell being run by a mix between a profane GlaDOS and a hostile version of Marvin the Paranoid Android. And no matter what you do, you always find yourself in yet another room.
Without ruining the experience, YFYIAR takes you on a strange trip that stretches the confines of most text adventures, leaving you with what can be described as an existentialist IF experience. The drama of your absurd situation is enhanced by intense synthesized background music, which sounds like something out of the Half Life soundtrack. While the game feels a bit too short and isn't very challenging as far as gameplay goes, the point of the experience is to take you on a journey beyond your comfort zone, which YFYIAR does well. So give it a shot, puny human; escape from the room, if you can.
Note: This title is actually a sequel of sorts to Viricide, which references a computer intelligence called ABOMI (Absolutely Omniscient Intelligence) that forces its users to play text adventures. Though not named directly in the game, that intelligence is clearly in full effect here.
