Cybersensitivity for our life and times. Based on James Finn Garner's #1 best-selling books.
True to the spirit of his hilarious best-selling books, this tree-free multimedia adaptation of James Finn Garner's work is "certifiably free from the patriarchal influences of hegemonic linear structure and purged of all cultural bias, blah, blah, blah!" Through the power of animation, sound, and interactivity, these fables of yore come to life on your desktop, injected with the politically correct sensibility that tortures our modern life and times. Infinitely variable, the multiple tracks through these tales will bring you back to your PC time and again for more PC Bedtime Stories.
Four of the most famous bedtime stories, told in the PC newspeak of the '90s, make these the only truly interactive animated tales for adults who wish they never grew up. Countless sight gags and in-jokes make the once-familiar stories you thought you knew play out in an infinite variety of ways - and never the same way twice. Outrageous animation and zany characters (who might say anything, and do) bring Garner's "new fashioned" fables to life on your desktop.
PC Dictionary guarantees the politically correct phrase. With this automatic PC "translator," you can't make a mistake. PC Screen Savers entertain while raising your socio/politico/cultural consciousness.
PC Stationery lets you bring your newfound political correctness to those friends and family who "just don't get it."

"'I'm not a pig. I am a cloven-footed American,' remarks one of the characters in James Finn Garner's best-selling Politically Correct Bedtime Stories."
"No story plays the same way twice; your choices determine each outcome. The program takes turns prompting you for input and proceeding on its own. The graphics-created especially for the title - are colorful and whimsical; Goldilocks, 'a melanin-impoverished young biologist," is one of our favorites. And the title takes swipes-a-plenty at popular media icons; for example, you may just hear, "They have switched our regular coffee with Folger's Crystals' popping up out of the blue."
