Plumbers Don't Wear Ties is an adult-oriented graphic adventure game/dating sim produced and released by Fremont, California game company Kirin Entertainment, a subsidiary of Digital Stuff Inc., in 1994. Kirin's first published game, it tells the story of John (played by Edward J. Foster) and Jane (played by Jeanne Basone), that are being pressured by their respective parents to find a suitable spouse, and it's up to the player to get John and Jane together.
Having been considered to be one of the worst games of all time, Plumbers Don't Wear Ties received negative attention mainly due to much of the game being presented as a slide show despite being advertised as a full motion video game (only its introduction was a FMV). Other well known were focused on its "surreal" and "sexist" storyline and poor voice acting. It has been also cited as one of the primary reasons for the commercial failure of the 3DO game system..
Famous quotes containing the word wear:
“We never really are the adults we pretend to be. We wear the mask and perhaps the clothes and posture of grown-ups, but inside our skin we are never as wise or as sure or as strong as we want to convince ourselves and others we are. We may fool all the rest of the people all of the time, but we never fool our parents. They can see behind the mask of adulthood. To her mommy and daddy, the empress never has on any clothesand knows it.”
—Frank Pittman (20th century)
