Oh man, this was a good (apparently well deserved) bash review.

Your description reminds me of the Xbox 360 indie game West, which was a turn-based RPG with a super heavy-handed moral story. Like, there's a part where an NPC tells you that some of things you encounter might be symbolic, as if the player couldn't figure that out.

The main difference is that West is extremely easy and short. I finished it in under 2 hours.

Also, Ed Wood is definitely not the worst filmmaker. Andy Milligan and Barry Mahon were way worse.

The only thing my milkshake brings to the yard is a subpoena.

Thank you! I wouldn't normally give any bad press to a nonprofit fangame, but this is one that is very popular yet very bad, so I think it may be good that others have an idea of what they're getting into. As for the running time of this game, there's too many variables to tell, but I imagine it would be at least around 20 hours due to the grinding. Grinding, grinding grinding.

Oh, yeah, plenty of worse guys than Ed even back then, but he's widely considered the worst, so I used him as an example. I'm familiar with Barry Mahon's work, but just a browse on Letterboxd for Andy Milligan looks absolutely horrendous. I think I'd rather watch Uwe Boll's filmography! Or get punched by him.
