Classic Game of the Month Review: Edible Vomit
Published: Nov 1, 2000
Part of Series: Classic Game of the Month Reviews
Remember these lines? Yes, this month's CGOTM is Edible Vomit, the ultimate trippy ZZT game by Draco.
You play the role of Freddy the Ferret, a funny lil' animal in search for the perfect drug. As mentioned in the quote above, you inject drugs into your arm with a needle. You vomit and want to get outside for some fresh air, but then you start seeing all kinds of weird visions. This trip has only started. Freddy's in a different world now...
Edible Vomit is game in the genre of Kudzu (by clysm) and POP (by tucan) and it's a good one, too. On Freddy's "adventures", you'll see mushroom-shaped houses, the Bur-Lynn wall, the happy meadows and a few other really weird places.
The graphics of this game are really cool and definitely add to the game's trippiness. They have this trippy, happy and lush touch to them. Also, Draco put together a good soundtrack. What also intrigued me is the interesting title screen (I think I even nominated it for "Best title screen" in the Hoodian Awards 1999).
Overall, this is a classic (though not as "classic" as a game like kudzu) that you should really have played.
