Adventure Game Scene of the Day — Friday 18 April 2014
Puppet Motel (1995).
Laurie Anderson! The best multi-media experience ever. It’s a pity I could only play it on my win95 computer. Yeah, the sad television scenes. The “come here little girl” room, playing the violins, the story about the palm reader, the ventrolinquist dummy, skating…
It’s definitely an interesting and enjoyable experience as far as interactive art goes. It works just fine in Win98SE in Virtual Box by the way. No old computer needed.
Yikes, the simplistic graphics make that TV image even more disturbing…

I enjoyed finding all the hidden rooms and secret exits, and I found Anderson’s voice very compelling when she wove her stories. It’s definitely an interesting and very different kind of experience.
I keep hitting the escape button, but somehow I’m still here.
... that TV image ... (is) disturbing…
Don’t worry. It’s a chocolate hammer and all that man is going to do is jam it down little child’s throat (but not at once, little piece by little piece).
The human race is doomed to progress.
