IF Comp 2014: Hunger Daemon (Sean M. Shore)
... Hunger Daemon concerns a guy named Barry who lives in Saint Paul and is part of a Cthulhu cult. The ritual to help his uncle ascend to tentacled demonhood has gone a bit wrong, though, so Barry needs to solve some puzzles to get things back on track.
This is classic trad-IF fare. Itís got an amusing narrative voice; it runs about the right length for comp play; it feels really solid and thoroughly tested, and has good come-backs for all the incidental or optional commands I thought of typing. (more)

This game takes only an hour to play, but every location is well-implemented, and the puzzles mostly make sense (although one, I thought, was vaguely unfair, but it was probably just me not reading descriptions well).
The only drawback is the short game length. Pretty much a perfect game otherwise.
