Keep in mind that I last played Paranoia in the early 1990s…
I always played it as an action/horror/comedy, with a strong vein of political commentary.
The one Paranoia adventure I wrote was called “The King is a Commie! Long Live the King!” It involved a partly-functioning animatronic Elvis that repeated cryptic phrases and then would burst into song. Three of the Cryptic Alliances were fighting for control of it: One thought it was a god and wanted to worship it, one wanted to use it as a public figurehead to overthrow The Computer, and one thought it was a way to learn about the Before Times.
The political commentary: Some of the phrases it spoke were GHW Bush-isms, and some of the special weapons in the adventure were the “Thousand Points of Light Gun” and the “Blood For Oil Bomb.”
While I would love to re-read what the college-aged-me wrote back then, my hard-copy was destroyed in the Great Basement Flood of 1998, and I have no idea what happened to the 5-1/4" floppy disks that had the AppleWorks files… or how I would read those files if the disks still existed.
