My favorite April Fools’ Day trick this year wasn’t a trick at all: It was a game published by Guild Wars 2 superfan @that_shaman called Inventory Manager. And it wasn’t just a joke; it was a real Bejeweled-style game that actually worked and poked cheeky fun at Guild Wars 2’s legendary inventory mess.expansion for Inventory Manager called End of Disarray – a play on upcoming GW2 expansion End of Dragons. According to the patch notes for the expansion to the parody title, it adds “10 new inspiring lootbox rewards,” 15 new tile sets, new music, more bugs, sound sliders, and what he’s calling the Time Attack mode.
“This brand new game mode exclusive to EoD puts your skills to the test! Keep cleaning your inventory at record pace to keep the timer from depleting. This mode uses the same rule set as before but the undo button has been disabled to keep you focused on your task.”
