Let’s Play Hard Time – YouTube Full Playthrough

Here’s Sir TapTap playing Hard Time by MDickie on YouTube including John Madden going to jail, the birth of Frank Tidepod, mobile gaming LEGEND, and the symbolic torture of my ex-ISP.

Can a game made in a month be good? Yes, but not this one. But the badness is the point, MDickie’s games are lusciously awful. I slipped in a video of The You Testament, because despite being a Jesus Simulator, it is basically a Hard Time clone. Yes. Just…watch it and you’ll see.

So let’s run through the various problems with the points made in this piece.
