Praise for Drunk With A Pen:
Joseph J. Clark’s ‘pub crawl of poems’ analogy was indeed what he set out for it to be; a simultaneous condemnation and celebration of the effects of drinking, starting pleasantly, getting a bit weepy in the middle and ending up joyfully singing to a lamp post.

Follow the journey of Algo Bot on the colonisation ship Europa, solving fiendish puzzles as you move through the decks.
Joseph J Clark designed the story and wrote the script.
Praise for Algo Bot:
I also appreciate the gently mocking tone of the narrator bot, PAL, who appears to fall somewhere between Marvin the Paranoid Android and GlaDOS.
