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.

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.

A quick status update.

November 15, 2013

You guys have probably already figured out that I’m not going to finish reviewing IF Comp games within the judging period.  I feel less shame about this than usual, but also a greater desire to not be a gender-non-specific pussy and actually finish reviewing the games outside the judging period.  I am telling you guys this so that when I inevitably review one or two more games and then fall off the truck, this declaration of motivation makes my failure even sadder in retrospect, like the Mars part of Photopia.  Which I at one point intended to write a big long thing about but laziness makes fools of us all.

IF Comp ’13 – Alex Warren’s Moquette!

November 8, 2013

I’ve already forgotten what “moquette” means.  Some kind of archaic bicycle?

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. As well as giving it a distinctive velvet like feel, the pile construction is particularly durable, and ideally suited to applications such as public transport.

That makes a lot of sense, actually!

November 8, 2013

My desk is a tidy island in a sea of stuff I do not remember and cannot justify having bought.  Time to play IF games!

IF Comp ’13 – Hulk Handsome’s Machine of Death!

October 23, 2013

Comp updates might be a bit sporadic after this.  I’ve made a deal with the controllers of my apartment that I don’t have to give them any more money but in exchange I have to never go there again and also put all my stuff somewhere else and it turns out that for a person with very few worldly assets I have a surprising lot of stuff.

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.
