The 90s were a weird time for video games. Some games from that decade are considered timeless classics, such as Super Mario World, The Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past, and Megaman X.
Others should have never been made. Plumbers Don’t Wear Ties is one of those 90’s games.
A glorified PowerPoint presentation that somehow passed as a videogame back in the 90’s is considered one of the worst games of all time. PC Gamer gave it a score of 3/100 back in 1994, the worst score they’ve ever given. In fact, it was so bad that almost all of the PC copies of the game have disappeared.
According to PC Gamer, recently, YouTuber psychoticgiraffe took it upon himself to find one of these copies. As it turns out, only one registered copy of the game exists- and it was in the Ball State University Library.
It’s kind of strange that Plumbers Don’t Wear Ties was in the library of a higher institution of learning considering how the “game” is basically a terribly made visual adult choose-your-own-adventure novel, but that’s beside the point.
Anyways, psychoticgiraffe was able to copy the game files and create and emulator to run Plumbers Don’t Wear Ties, and now anyone can experience one of the worst PC of all time.
