IF Comp ’13 – Andrew Brown’s The Cardew House!

October 9, 2013

Okay, I’m back from the Portland Retro Gaming Expo where I had a great time and bought a sweet t-shirt featuring Q-Bert big pimping the soft drink Mello Yello. Had never been to Portland before. If you haven’t either, your imagination is correct, except you need to put more plaid shirts on people. Up to seven a person if necessary. They don’t mind. They love it.

Anyway, let’s get back to comp games! We were on The Cardew House, yes?

———————

Thought I’d give Inform7 a try for this comp… it can be a pain in the butt though, can’t it?

anyhoo… here’s my game… after two other abortive attempts…

This blurb is irrelevant and inappropriately chatty with a tendency to overshare. That’s my schtick and I want it back!

(Inform 7 really can be a pain in the butt though. What is it the kids say, I am feeling your feels? Also congratulations on having finished a game! Finishing things is hard.)

IF Comp ’13 – T. Orisney’s Blood on the Heather!

October 1, 2013

A trio of college students visit Scotland and get sucked into a war between vampires.

Another great blurb.  I wonder if “sucked” is an intentional pun?  Because vampires?  Get it?  Sucked?

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 – InformStorm’s 9 Lives!

October 1, 2013

This IF was created as an assignment for ENG 437: Project Management, taught by Prof. Stuart Moulthrop at the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee.

The authors were Bill Balistreri, Hal Hinderliter, Sean Klabough, Luke Michalski and Morgan Sokol.

This blurb makes me crazy excited to play this game.  Not only is it a collaborative school project, which promises wildly uneven levels of quality a la last year’s Valkyrie, but the class it’s for (Project Management?) has a deliberately-boring-sounding name, like it’s really a front for something else (ENG 437: Hiding the Bodies?)

Also I went to Culver’s today to partake in the hot and cold running fats of my people and am feeling very Wisconsin Represent.

Forward!

[spoilers begin here, also you should make sure to read this with an accent ya dere hey]

October 1, 2013

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