Psychotron is an obscure game for sure (and well-deservedly so), but I used to be familiar with it.

Don’t know the game, but I see a definite Myst homage… Grin

Ugh, I keep forgetting that game exists.

Just like the “Bored of the Rings” book… Which I own...  Crazy

On second thought, doesn’t look like Pyst. There’s more than one Myst parody.

Does it have to be a parody?

The Cat Lady also paid homage to Maniac Mansion with the layout of the exterminator’s house, and that wasn’t a parody.

I like the graphics of that game, pretty retro but quite distinct!

Alright, let’s see what I can pull out of my hat..

edit: this might be too obscure, with my mind still in a quiz-making state. To make matters worse, here’s a bit of information I’d hesitate to call an actual hint:

The maker of this game was involved in the 2020 US Senate elections.. and he got played like a fiddle.

Is that the best way to inspect scuba diving equipment?
