That depends on whether you're eating the kids. They're quite tasty.

Joe, I don't care if you don't need any more testimonials. I'm giving you one anyway. Just 'cause.

I have never been one to buy into people who say they appreciate a community. I tend to shy away from new-neighbor types bearing "welcome baskets" and smiling, mostly because I deem them to be terrifying and only ask them in for coffee because I want to suss out what they want.

...That's a lie. I've never had anyone offer me a welcome basket. I live in New Jersey. We don't do that sort of thing here, it cuts in on the time spent running people over and cursing out little old ladies and making small children cry by taking away their candy and replacing it with nuclear waste. But, you know. If I did ever run into a situation in which there are welcome-baskets. I wouldn't buy into them. I WOULD BE VERY SUSPICIOUS INDEED.

So take the compliment from the source when I say the community of people that has been built here is truly something to behold. There is a group of extremely special people here. And yes, I do on occasion mean special with very sarcastic quotation marks, but really? I actually mean special in the most Hallmarky of ways. Except this special has explosions.

...oh, get that smirk off of your face, will you?

It is the nature of the thing that draws the people that love it. Take from that what you will.

In other news, the Real World keeps calling. It wonders why I don't seem to spend as much time with it as I used to. I believe I have hurt its feelings. I try to explain..."But this world has Ambulatory Printing Presses! Named Dada!" but it just gets all quiet and tells me to "do what I want," which of course makes me feel horribly guilty...

But not guilty enough to stop. I heart you, Island.

I HEART YOU.

So...Improbable Island. You're probably wondering "What on earth is that?" Well, let me tell you a story...

Once upon a time, a rather bored individual was wandering the endless paths of the internet when he spotted a small banner ad that caught his eye. "Hmm," he thought, "this game looks amusing. I'll try it out, see if it's all that it promises it will be." He clicked that banner ad...and suddenly was thrown into a world beyond his ken. Things that could never have happened in his own world occurred here regularly.

It wasn't long before some helpful denizens of this world helped set him on the path he needed to follow, and taking their advice he followed it. It was long, hard, and sometimes painful, but in the end he triumphed. Only to learn that this was only the beginning. He shouldered the burden regardless, and soon he too was helping new denizens of the world along their own paths and unlocking great powers he never knew he possessed.

Here he made friends. Here he was witness to great tragedy, and great nobility of...well, not necessarily human spirit, but it was close enough. Here there were moments of quiet and hours of laughter.

And that, my friends, is Improbable Island. More than a just a game...and a lot sillier than my story. If you don't believe me, try not to laugh while being attacked by a rice cooker.


Judging by the chaos, I've been here already.

Here's the best explanation I've come up with so far:

"It's a cross between Twitter and Zork."

This isn't really a testimonial, but I did see the ad currently running on the webcomic Something Positive. Something Positive readers might very well be interested in this game.

I really liked the layout of the ad, too. It caught my eye even before I knew what it was for.




Ahaha! I found improbable island because of an ad on something positive! Davan rocks!

"Grundy think Improbable Island more fun than smashing Green Lantern"

or from the player

"Devilishly creative, Improbable Island stradles the line between humorously obscene and obscenely humorous, and does it with style."

But we still play it.

I thought CMJ doesn't need testimonials anymore but hey, what the heck?

"We have nothing to fear...except for that guy in the tinfoil hat and the chainsawandhe'scomingrightatmeAAAAAAH!"

"The most fun you'll have with midgets."

"Children: the other spam."

"Improbable Island: telling the censors of the world to FOOK a EWE (And no, that's not a typo)"

"Improbable Island: where cannibalism is not only accepted, it's a taught skill, that is only improved with practice."

and finally

Improbable Isle
where you can do insane feats
like fighting haikus


I make the many models of a mutant individual. To make them I use vegetables, animals, and minerals. From robot bugs to zombie bears to many singing barnacles.
