What if you try it as a "First before"?

One final gripe: why are we publishing games in 2017 with inventory limits? Especially since the limit doesn't take part in any puzzles, as far as I can tell; it's just there to annoy the player. Get rid of it. There is the puzzle of getting the set and realizing you can use it as a holdall. Invent...

Yes, I think this was accidentally well written, as it were. And a few reviewers did pick up on the gratuitousness of some of the puzzles (I saw some remarks on the canopic jars). Some people liked the falling rock puzzle, which at least is unusual in its implementation--it wasn't my favorite, thoug...

OK, but it seems like the thing to do then would not be to leave up a link that says "You can still play and browse the games" and have it go to a page from which you can't actually play and browse all the games. Maybe next time around it would be a good idea to keep the games on ifcomp.or...

The disadvantage of the color scheme is that spell names are less memorable. To play the game I had to keep a Notepad window open with a list of spells I had learned and their color combinations, which was disruptive to gameplay. Exacerbating the problem is the choice of multiple colors with the sa...

The link from the front page saying that you can still play and browse the games goes to the games list . But when I tried "play online" and "download" links for The Wand and Absence of Law, they went to the games' IFDb pages. Are the games accessible still? Did the end-of-voting...

Spoiler: show
I'm pretty sure that "Rainbus North" is an anagram.

Last I know of it, the most readily available version of Reactable Quips (which Quip-Based Conversation depends on) isn't actually compatible with Inform 6M62. Ruber Eaglenest has an updated version of Reactable Quips which he posted here . You could see if using that version of Reactable Quips solv...

Re: the last spoiler: I'm just worried about the people who get everything but the "d" in "ducking...." FWIW the cryptogram solver I was using is quipqiup.com--note that the last one isn't "quip" but "qiup"--which has a few different modes that let you...

I quite liked this. As jepflast and dhakahack observe, it is the shaggiest of shaggy dog stories and calls for a lot of replaying. It's not just humor, either; some of the paths you can go down are heartfelt. It's definitely worth going through the goblinese conversations with a cryptogram solve...
