Can anyone translate Glaswegian? I once drank until dawn in Osaka with a Glaswegian and, like this game, could only understand about 10% of what he said. Funny that he seemed to get more sober and clearheaded as he drank.

"seriously, i advise ya not to do that again"

love this! I found that the more i drank (and they drank) the more impossible it got for either to understand the other when i was in Glasgow--i had a wonderful time--excellent excellent people, and great town. : >

Hell, I hadn't seen this before. Was very enjoyable for two minutes.

People have gotten very uptight around here.

It has nothing to do with uptight, this is just a poor flash game with no rewards whatsoever. As witty said, you can't even break shit.

I liked it. I would have been nice to break shit, but I liked being able to piss someone off and have them yell at me without feeling the need to run away.

The concept is OK, but the game looks unfinished. It would be better if there were people opening the windows and shaking their fists, or something like that. It's oddly lo-tech hearing these disembodied voices after you make a shot. But no worries, IMO it was a good attempt, just not quite there.

As a Glaswegian, I'm deeply offended that you think we talk funny.
