welcome to the home page of the stupidest game ever known
Noted game show funnyman Charles Nelson Reilly gives PUTPBAD his own personal endorsement.
Picture shamelessly stolen from the Match Game homepage.
1: You are in a single room with a phone booth.
2: If you pick up the phone booth, you'll die.
Well? Is that an amazingly original premise or what?! Imagine the hours of fun you could have sitting around in this room (a Town Square) avoiding picking the phone booth up!
Well, there is a way to win the game, and as mentioned in alt.stupidity, it doesn't involve not playing the game. You'll just have to figure it out yourself. So there.
The sequel to PUTPBAD (working title Pick Up The Phone Booth and Die 2: For Graduates of Pick Up The Phone Booth and Die) has been in the works for over four years. Much like Daikatana! Maybe someday it will come to be. A quick, five-room demo was written up a long time ago and shows off just some of the fun fun features that could very well make it into the finished version. Also, the fountain will have water in it.
If you liked PUTPBAD and its subsidiaries, you will surely also detest the author's other quickly-written games.
Compiled story file
The source code won't be released, because if you are so desperate as to look through the source of this game to find out how not to pick the phone booth up, you should just go back to whatever other games you've been playing. I bet you couldn't even get into the book in Myst. Also, er, I lost the source.
