Today we look at a computer game that was created for more of an adult audience however failed dramatically and became to be known as one of the worst games ever made – Plumbers Don’t Wear Ties.
The game was developed and published by Kirin Entertainment and was released in 1993 and 1994. The game was an adult based romantic comedy graphic adventure dating game which tells the story of John and Jane who are pressured by their parents to of out and find a partner. The aim of the game was to get John and Jane together.
The main gameplay was where the player had the choice to decide what happened next in the storyline, there were three choices but only two of them would be correct. You had to make the right choices to bring the couple together and if you didn’t then the commentators of the game would then have an argument.
Plumbers Don’t Wear Ties received really negative attention due to the really bad gameplay, the awful story that made no sense and the really appalling acting. The whole game came across as a sort of slide show and some critics called it shallow and hateful waste of a game!
