Thanks to a bit of poking from GameSetWatch staff, coder and Namako Team overlord Jiji has completed his PSP port of Robotfindskitten, the uber-surreal ASCII game which is handily described on the official RFK website as "Yet another portable zen simulation".
The game, which is available in an insane multitude of versions, including a Web browser Java applet version, is simply played as follows: "In this game, you are robot (#). Your job is to find kitten. This task is complicated by the existence of various things which are not kitten. Robot must touch items to determine if they are kitten or not. The game ends with robotfindskitten." It's absurd and delicious all at once. Especially if you like robots and kittens.
As a coda, there's really no reason not to be delighted that Leonard 'Crummy' Richardson, the alleged discoverer of Robotfindskitten all those many years ago, has also discovered Robotfindspanties, which are, yes, RFK-themed underwear for girls, as modeled by 'idealforbarbecue'. Remember, GSW readers, it's never an Internet fad without the tie-in undergarments.
