Video Game / Pick Up the Phone Booth and Die
Pick Up the Phone Booth and Die
(1996) is a minimalist piece of Interactive Fiction
by Rob Noyes. As the title suggests, you die when you pick up the Phone Booth
. However, the game can be won, and in just two moves. The puzzle was a finalist for the 1997 XYZZY Award for Best Individual Puzzle.
The game inspired a large number of parodies, such as Pick Up the Phone Booth and Aisle
(2001) written collaboratively by 13 authors, which itself was a 2001 XYZZY finalist for Best Use of Medium.
There is also a sequel, Pick Up The Phone Booth And Die 2
(1996).Needs Wiki Magic Love
