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.

Pepsi-Cola Presents IF Comp ’13 – The Marino Family’s Mrs. Wobbles and the Tangerine House!

November 15, 2013

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

This pre-spoiler space is brought to you by Pepsi.  Pepsi:  It’s All Right Until You Get Some In Your Mouth.

IF Comp ’13 – Georgiana Bourbonnais’ Imposter Syndrome!

October 23, 2013

You’re giving a talk at a big important tech conference. But do you really deserve to be here, or were you selected just to fill a diversity quota?
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.

Cats Having Sex With Dogs

October 18, 2013

Okay, so it’s just the one cat, and the one dog.  I didn’t really feel like googleimaging too hard and I figured no one else really wanted me to either.

[This is probably gonna be NSFW.]

IF Comp ’13 – Brendan Patrick Hennessy’s Bell Park, Youth Detective!

October 1, 2013

A headstrong twelve-year-old detective gets in over her head when she’s hired to solve a murder mystery at an internet technology conference.

That is a great blurb.  I am sold.  Why does Brendan Patrick Hennessy sound familiar OH MY GOD IT’S THE YOU WILL SELECT A DECISION GUY I LOVED YOU WILL SELECT A DECISION

enough talk we are playing this

IF Comp ’13 – Pierre Chevalier’s 100,000 years

October 1, 2013

the longest short story ever

Not sure what to expect, but if I’m not interested in this game by the 20,000 year mark, I’m quitting.

Macrame Game Depository

July 11, 2013

This is a list of playable builds of games written for the collaborative chain-letter Twine thing that I can’t decide if just Macrame or Project Macrame is a better name for.  Macrame on its own has a confident ring to it, like someone who knows what the hell they are doing in life said “I have made this thing and named it; it is done.”  Maybe somebody who works for Apple.

On the other hand, Project Macrame sounds like a badass super secret spy mission.  So I don’t know.

Anyway!  You are here for games!  There are not many yet, but the not many there are is pretty good for something so larval and wiggly.

Autobiography (Polodna/Jansen) 2
Eliza, Queen of the Wasteland (Odhner/Ermer) 2
Escape From Cthulhu! (Jansen/Cox) 2
Escape From Cthulhu! (Jansen/Welch) 2
rain rain crops (Cox/Bowman) 2
rain rain crops (Cox/Polodna/Odhner) 3 2

For your convenience, here is a playable build of every seed in the dropbox:

Autobiography
Caelum Incognitum
Dungeons of Death
Eliza, Queen of the Wasteland
Escape From Cthulhu!
rain rain crops
