Welcome to Inepta Academy!

You play as Elizabeth, an intelligent nine year old girl who earned a scholarship to the school. Unfortunately, you've only been there for a month and don't have any friends. To make matters worse, Randolf, the most popular boy in the school (to the boys) has been annoying you lately.

Now he's stolen your bag and hid it in the boarded off area. It's up to you to retrieve your bag from the area after school is done, so that you can study and pass the big test tomorrow. Maybe you can even find a way to get revenge on Randolf somehow while you're there.

Was made as an entry for the School Based Contest 2016.

Very enjoyable game. The scripting was very impressive, by far the most of all the contest games I've read so far.

I think I beat the entire game, although I'm bitter I still got a detention for it. That goddamn bitch of a teacher.

I did at first assume this game was going to go much darker. As soon as I heard the tape of the boys referncing Mr Trent going around the boarded up area, I was certain I was going to find a tape of their horrible demise, and then there crumpled bodies crammed into a closet, before confronting Mr Trent. A bit disappointing child murder wasn't the end of those dickish boys, but whatever.

Anyhow, it was a very enjoyable game, and a great contest entry that came out of the blue for me.

A fun little game, though I'm thinking I may have missed a section. Never did find a way into the Teacher's Lounge, and there was some more plot hinted at about one of the teachers that was never followed up on in my play through, so I'm thinking that must be the case.

There were some issues with the ending I did get (At the end, tape #3 is described as having some useless stuff about crushes on it, instead of the wonderfully damning evidence I heard when I found it.)

Some impressive scripting at work nonetheless and this was one of the few games I've played here where I wasn't distracted and annoyed fiddling with my inventory.

I can see now why I had such a boring childhood though, I probably would've just told a teacher about my backpack or had my mom call and bitch somebody out and missed out on all these exciting breaking and entering shenanigans.

This was an enjoyable story.

There's a bit of an inconsistency error with the falling chairs. The protagonist says she has her backpack in the dialogue whether she has it or not.

I played through a few times, and it seemed like the boys would get punished, even if I didn't offer any evidence.

As it was, I couldn't solve the puzzle for the computer, my best guess was the year Toy Story was released, and I couldn't find tape #3 or a use for the yellow key. So I assume I missed out the best ending.

Overall, the story was well written, humorous at times, and engaging.

This was a very fun game for younger readers, or just those young at heart. At first I thought this was going to be a magical school, like in Harry Potter, before eventually realizing that there would be no magic in this story. The title also gave me the impression that the school staff would be especially inept, but that did not seem to be the case either. The clever and headstrong young protagonist gave me Enola Holmes vibes. The scripting was excellent, and I liked the math problems also. I wouldn't mind a sequel one bit.

I loved this!!! I didn’t get all of the evidence I could, and maybe I could have liked Randolf... and I failed the math test
