Les Liaisons: An Adventre in Bourgeois Excess

I recently became aware of this splendid little gem of a game. The creators don't seem to have a homepage or any sort of web presence that I'm able to discern, or else I would link it here. I have no idea how they intended to see this distributed, which is baffling, given the amount of work that plainly went into this opus.

At any event, it's brief - it will only take about 25 minutes to play through in its entirety - and can only be called a "game" in the loosest possible sense of the words, but is entirely delightful; it's a sort of gentle subversion of Final Fantasy-esque RPGS, which possitively takes to early 19th century foppery in the same way that a pig takes to its own filth. I found myself positively prostrate with ejaculations of jocularity within moments of partaking in this comedic romp, and I can reccommend it to anyone fond of bourgeois excess and adventures therein with the utmost of confidence.
