Since my WIP includes one, I'm interested in a list of games with scenes where the player is falling from a great height, especially ones where a puzzle has to be solved before splatting on the ground. I seem to recall that one of the Zork series may have one?

Future Boy! starts with a falling scene, as does Augmented Fourth. Then there's a Speed-IF called AFGNCAAP - IF Agent! Todays Adventure: Holy Goat! that starts with a scene where the PC is falling from an airplane.

I don't remember if any of these have a timer, though. Except
Spoiler: show
Augmented Fourth where you're supposed to reach the bottom.

Flight of the Hummingbird is almost entirely about falling from a great height, and one of the chapters of Constraints, by Martin Bays, is entitled Falling and is about just that.

I think there may be one in Lurid Dreams, though I'm not sure.

There's a fall in Snowquest, though I'm not sure the falling part lasts long enough to be called a scene.

All I know is that any falling scene is better if at least one character has a Slow Clap Processor.

Thanks, everyone. Here's hoping I get a little inspiration.
