IF with a sense of wonder - an IFDB Poll

by blue/green
RSS Feed

What interactive fiction would you recommend that evokes a sense of wonder? These could be games that capture wonder or beauty in ordinary things, perhaps by viewing the world through the eyes of a child. Or they could be games that inspire awe at more extraordinary things, for instance, a spectacular landscape. Games that are not world-weary or cynical or raunchy or gory or horror-themed or disturbing, but games that make you feel as though the world is, on the whole, a beautiful/imaginative/neat place where awesome/fun things can happen. Thanks for any suggestions.
