I really like this game this is a true game of trippyness and only few have ever made a true trippy game (Edible Vomit, Mind Vomit, I am saaaa remake) Sadly alot of this has bad graphics but the pointlessness is hilarious (NOO! THE FOOD FELL THANKS RAPHEL! STUPID NO GOOD SIDEWAYS TABLE!)Altough PPDV2 is much better this deserves to be played! :)

Can I give this 0.5? I like Viovis games for their admirable graphics, insane creativity, and, well, the incoherent nonsense. But in this game, Viovis has made the incoherent nonsense TOO incoherent and TOO nonsensical. I don't know how, but he did it.

The graphics aren't anywhere near the level in his other games, which makes me think that this is one of his early games. For his sake I certainly hope so.

The game is also far too long. The reason that The Motivational Speaker worked was because all the individual parts told a story, weird as it was, and the reason Pool Table worked was because, despite its utter randomness, it was short enough that it didn't give you a chance to become bored. PPDV however, suffers from being much longer than TMS and much more random than Pool Table, without providing the entertainment of either.

Altogether horrible. Get The Motivational Speaker instead. Or Pool Table.

PPDV is a pointless game. It consists of pointless art boards in a pointless setting. Combining pointless vignettes and pointless visual gags, PPDV raises the pointlessness bar further with pointless music and pointless writing. The pointless characters make the pointless tedium ever the more pointless.

This review is, of course, pointless, because, as far as I can tell, the essence of this trippy game's humor is pointlessness. In theory, enough pointlessness crammed into the a tiny space is hilarious. The incongruity of the images is supposed to create humor that lacks any sort of punchline.

Trippy? Even a nightmare ostensibly has some sort of internal semi-continuity, the faintest glimmer of a point. I don't know if a drug trip has one, but, if taking LSD is at all like walking through this game, PPDV might be an excellent illustration of why LSD has gone out of vogue.

Pros: A few clever visual gags. Some occasional flashes of real humor.

Cons: In general, the humor never rises above the level of "Look how silly I'm being!" About as funny as the Performance Art where actors perform Shakespeare backwards or smash toilets with sledgehammers. Pointless.
