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.
