Game Information

Available on:PCFeb 9, 2016

Developer: Joe Richardson

Genre: Adventure

The Preposterous Awesomeness of Everything is a satirical point-and-click adventure game, about progress, politics and propulsive nozzles. It features a traditional verb-based interface, with updated verbs (including 'befuddle', 'disrespect' and 'pray-for'), unique collage-based art and ~15,000 words (3-4 hours?) of intellectually stimulating satirical shenanigans.

The preposterous Awesomeness of Everything is about an apparently primitive society, attempting to work together to build a space rocket. It follows these people, from disordered chaos (the past), through a disgusting and distorted and horrible and hilarious kind of faux-democracy (the present (SATIRE! Amirite?!?!)), into the unknowable, irrelevant emptiness of outer space (the future).

Along the journey players will encounter a host of colourful characters (including the mysterious Man with the Little Pencil, the superfluous Man in the Wren Suit and the fabulous Helen), they will solve a variety of engaging puzzles, and they will be forced into making a number of difficult moral decisions, with potential disastrous consequences!

The Preposterous Awesomeness of Everything is a strange little game that provides a satirical commentary on society today in both smartly subtle and knock-you-on-the-head obvious ways. The cast of characters is mostly comprised of caricatures, but your verb choices and dialogue options let you interact with them in numerous ways. If you're willing to spend some time with it in all its eccentricity and endure its low moments, it rewards you with different endings to uncover.

You get the impression that if Richardson had someone to bounce ideas off – someone to pick up the slack and point out the bad ideas – he'd be capable of something that's actually interesting. Instead, he's released a work that I really hope doesn't show him at his best.

The Preposterous Awesomeness of Everything is dull because there's no coherent narrative and no real gameplay. Add to that a non-existent soundtrack, horrendous graphics and a game interface which is prehistoric.
