IF Comp ’14 – Simon Deimel’s Enigma!

October 6, 2014

It’s nighttime, but I think I can handle Enigma.  I’ve got a bright light, a blanket, and a dude next to me in bed.  I hope he stops meditating soon so I can ask him his name and how he got in here.

Oh, shit, he left.  I am so fucked.

IF Comp ’14 – Arthur DiBianca’s Excelsior!

October 5, 2014

Breaking the betsy in order to not play a game with a pool of blood on the cover at 3:06 AM.  Given how things went down with Eidolon, I feel pretty justified in this.  Remind me to write an autobiographical game sometime where every object is a perfectly normal object but the PC is pants-shitteningly afraid of all of them and then steps on a scorpion.  (I stepped on a scorpion earlier this week and it stung the crap out of me.  Then I stepped on a dead one and got just a little bit of venom in my other foot and for a while I was walking around on two feet full of scorpion venom feeling real good at life.  tl;dr the desert is terrible)

*where “83%” is used to mean “an arbitrary percentage”
