IFComp 2010: Rogue of the Multiverse, by C.E.J. Pacian

This is the sixth game I am reviewing in the 16th Annual Interactive Fiction Competition. There needs to be some text here so that when Facebook links to it it doesn’t include bits of the actual review. And thus it is that I say: I never actually used vi keys in roguelikes until I got an Android phone, but now I curse the lack of angle-bracket keys instead.

IFComp 2010: The Bible Retold: The Lost Sheep, by Ben Pennington

This is the fifth game I am reviewing in the 16th Annual Interactive Fiction Competition. There needs to be some text here so that when Facebook links to it it doesn’t include bits of the actual review. And thus it is that I say: you prepare a table before me in the presence of mine enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.

IFComp 2010: R, by therealeasterbunny

This is the fourth game I am reviewing in the 16th Annual Interactive Fiction Competition. There needs to be some text here so that when Facebook links to it it doesn’t include bits of the actual review. And thus it is that I say: the text I put in this space does, not, in fact, actually appear in the Facebook blurb.

IFComp 2010: Gigantomania, by Michelle Tirto

This is the third game I am reviewing in the 16th Annual Interactive Fiction Competition. There needs to be some text here so that when Facebook links to it it doesn’t include bits of the actual review. And thus it is that I say: two and two are four, four and four are eight, eight and eight are sixteen, sixteen and sixteen are thirty-two.

IFComp 2010: Gris et Jaune, by Steve van Gaal

This is the second game I am reviewing in the 16th Annual Interactive Fiction Competition. There needs to be some text here so that when Facebook links to it it doesn’t include bits of the actual review. And thus it is that I say: here we go gathering nuts in May, nuts in May, nuts in May. Here we go gathering nuts in May, and am I correct to believe this is a variant set of lyrics to “Here we go ’round the mulberry bush?”

IFComp 2010: Death Off the Cuff, by Simon Christiansen

This is the first game I am reviewing in the 16th Annual Interactive Fiction Competition. There needs to be some text here so that when Facebook links to it it doesn’t include bits of the actual review. And thus it is that I say: let A be a point and let B be a point. Why not say, “Let A and B be points?” Because they might be the same point.

IFcomp 2010: In which the Reviewer Explains His Practices

The Sixteenth Annual Interactive Fiction Competition is on! Anyone can judge, and if you want to judge, don’t read my reviews until you’ve played a game for yourself. However, if you do want to follow my reviews, then the rubric I use for determining ratings is below.

What is the difference between a ‘6’ and a ‘7’ anyways?
