3. Don't Soil Your Pants

Don't Soil Your Pants is a one-room text adventure game created by Rete, featuring multiple solutions to the same problem and a set of awards to unlock for players who are into pointless achievements.

"In my mind, DSYP was a one shot thing. It was like a funny joke that really doesn't work as well the second time. We've got a lot of people asking us to make Don't Piss Your Pants, but it probably would have been better if that was our first game, and Don't Shit Your Pants was our second.

You can't really follow up number 2 with number 1, if you know what I mean. However we have had some ideas that sound pretty good. We're also thinking of bringing it to the iPhone, if anyone would care for that kind of thing, since the fun is over in 15 minutes or less.

Despite its name, we wanted to keep it as clean as possible. For example, although talking about poop and stuff is funny, actually seeing it isn't, so we tried to reduce that. Before we actually published it on the Internet though, there were some reservations and we considered changing the name. We knew the vulgarity would get people to click it, so we stuck with it.

It's bizarre, because what we saw as a have-fun-and-forget type of flash game, people really got into. We had a magazine wanting to highlight it, and we've even had individuals make pretty creative youtube videos of it." - Kenny Lee
