IF Comp ’13 – Andrew Schultz’s Threediopolis!

March 12, 2014

Against all odds, here is a last year’s comp game review!  Cue this music, which always makes me feel like I’m returning triumphantly from something.  We got the Megatome & we are the smartest.

I don’t even know what to write in this pre-spoiler space anymore.  Maybe I should sell advertising.

Moquette derived from the French word for carpet – is a type of woven pile fabric in which cut or uncut threads form a short dense cut or loop pile.

IF Comp ’13 – Georgiana Bourbonnais’ Imposter Syndrome!

October 23, 2013

This is the most insecure-sounding game premise I have encountered since the one in ’08 where all you did was have social anxiety disorder.

IF Comp ’13 – Michael Thomét’s The House at the End of Rosewood Street!

October 23, 2013

Michael Thomét, of course, is best known for his Industrial Revolution-era bentwood chairs.  Wait, no, I’m thinking of Michael Thonet.  Michael Thomét is an elfin ghost that lives in your skull.
