''Plumbers Don't Wear Ties'' is a rare Western example of the VisualNovel. Released for the 3DO in 1993 by Kirin Entertainment (in their first [[CreatorKiller and second-to-last release]]), the game is a [[CoversAlwaysLie self-proclaimed full motion video]] game, as they want you to believe. It's actually little more than a slideshow of {{random events|Plot}}, featuring "[[PizzaBoySpecialDelivery a plumber]], a DaddysGirl, [[CluckingFunny chickens]], [[CityMouse crazed yuppies]], [[BadBoss evil bosses]], {{panda|ingToTheAudience}}s, {{shower scene}}s, [[CoolCar race cars]], [[NaughtyNuns a nun]]".[[note]]¿ʇᴉ ʇǝפ[[/note]]

* ScoringPoints: Their [[ThePointsMeanNothing meaninglessness]] is exemplified in the ViolationOfCommonSense trope below. In fact, the highest possible score in the game is ''-170,000'' according to [[http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/3do/file/584456/18976 GameFAQs]].

** If you choose any the other options the game calls you a loser for [[HypocriticalHumor doing such a lousy script]], including the boss [[spoiler:acting very generously and giving Jane an extremely well paying job with many bonuses.]]

** The so-called "18-rated" scene isn't really that explicit--it only features Thresher pressuring Jane to strip, with language no stronger than "DAMN" (of course). Perhaps they were referring to the scene where the page image comes to play?

* LingerieScene[=/=]OperaGloves: Jane strips herself down to her black bra and panties while wearing black opera gloves. And not only that, but she also takes out her {{whip|ItGood}} and {{hand|yCuffs}}cuffs!

* MultipleEndings: This is a rare case when you aren't even ''allowed'' to try a different route than the one the game set up as canon. However, they do have endings (Jane stripping for Thresher to get the job, John and Thresher ending up together, etc.), but they're labeled "failure" for this reason. This is all in stark contrast to what visual novels usually promote(multiple routes, each of which has multiple endings), which is one of many reasons as to why the game is so hated.
