Artists: Rita Ackermann & Necro Enema Amalgamated
Fever, a collaboration between artist Rita Ackermann and Necro Enema Amalgamated, was originally presented in the CD-ROM BLAM!. (This reconstructed version has been shortened and edited for online presentation.)
The Dallas Morning News lamented the original CD version as "the never-ending nightmare of a woman's drug trip. By any interpretation, it is obscene and sexually degrading."
More to the point, Lingua Franca recognized the strategic position of Fever in the BLAM! war plan: "BLAM! is a shell game specializing in humiliation. Users aren't users at all; they're just used. In Fever, by Rita Ackermann, I'm required to advance the story by clicking on the crotch of a weeping nymphet. My only "choice" is forward, and I click away complicitly, conscious of the BLAM! boys fingering my own buttons: shame... arousal... boredom."
WARNING TO EPILEPTICS: Fever contains stroboscopic images. If you think these may trigger a seizure, please refrain from watching.
BLAM! disks are no longer for sale to the public. If you're a collector anxious to have one, please contact Supervert for information.
