Soup ver 0.9 is a production loosely based on LSD, a trippy dream recollection available only on the Playstation console. Choose the first option to play in full screen mode. A different part of the adventure is unlocked for each new game attempted by the player.

Hold the left shift key to look around, and touch a wall to exit any room. Describing the game any further is equivalent to providing possible spoilers.

Name: Soup ver 0.9
Developer: Unknown
Category: Adventure

LSD is quite possibly the oddest game I've ever played.

Its so corkingly wrong and one of the few games where the playstation texturing actually feels at home ;)

...what is this?

Is there a point to it? What's it trying to say?

Oh, I'm so confused...

Ok, any Japanese speakers? What does "tomare" (とまれ) mean?

Tomare means "Stop!"

Too fantastic to bear... Brilliant. Now, let's play crystal meth while listening to the Beattles...

is there anything to this besides the obvious? the review declined to give any details for fear of "spoilers"

i havn't played soup, but lsd is a self-branded "dream emulator", in which you explore a surreal polygon landscape - based on a journal of dreams kept by one of the development staff over a ten-year period - that shifts and changes as you play. it's one of the most haunting experiences on the playstation. i assume that soup is along the same lines.

Except Soup just seems to be a collection of themed boxes with sometimes interesting music. Since it's not even a 1.0 there could be something to this, but at this point it seems more lazy than poignant. The first room is as good as it gets.
