Although I really dislike, usually, porn adventures (or whatever you may call it) – to me it feels like trolling all of the time, a sort of spoiling the real nature of a medium, turning away from the “story” and putting it in a dark and dump corner – I begin to understand the magnificence of the Stiffy Macane mythology. From the state of “just another attempt at being silly in IF” it has built up to a serious matter that, in the end, even deserved a parody.
This may be due to the sheer number of games made on the subject and to the fact that the foretold mythology is becoming too big to be left unaddressed (you may find a similar, even if yet unfulfilled trial here). Or it may be that the games themselves, after you have come to terms with the ritual of sex and the repeating of this ritual, are indeed well done and well articulated. Who knows and, moreso, who cares. I still have to understand why there is so much hype about sex in IF and why so many people think that this is the best medium for porn (I still consider the 3-minute streamings you can find everywhere on the internet the best format – for the length, if not for anything else – in which to present all sort of penetrations). Maybe I have to read the hints in Nemesis Macana better to find out.
I found this parody (which is itself not even a parody but a manifesto, as the “insane author” poses it himself) highly amusing. I don’t know to which extents it will reach into my brain, but I loved the joke.
Although I don’t think this is really a joke, after all.
I’m with Ryan, on the rating: Giant Red (like the tip of Stiffy’s — you know what.)
