About the StoryA small game that won the French IF Comp 2008, in which you have to find the exit of an unknown room... but you wake up in some kind of altered state if I may say so...
The emphasis has been set on the environment, the general ambiance and perceptions of the player, more than on the enigmas which remain quite simple.

While the English interactive fiction community regards long, elaborate works as an ideal, French authors seem to prefer small but well-made games (Ekphrasis being the exception that strengthens the rule). Brume is an escape-the-locked-room puzzle, very simple, but almost flawless. Except for a couple of unimplemented objects and an overwrought blurb, I have no complaint.
The game is made to convey a particular mood, and it does so with a carefully designed environment and short, well-written descriptions. The timed mood messages and occasional sudden deaths (they're undoable...) help, too. The puzzles are very basic, which is just the way I like them, but since the game is so small, more red herrings would not have been out of place. The author has clearly mastered the basics of text adventure authoring. I recommend just a little more ambition next time.
L'écriture est plutôt intéressante : certains passages sont très bien écrits, et les descriptions posent bien l'atmosphère ; de plus c'est un concept rafraîchissant pour une escape-the-room. Mais j'ai trouvé que certains passages avaient beaucoup trop de fioritures - surtout l'introduction, qui est longue, remplie d'adjectifs compliqués, et finalement n'apporte pas grand-chose au récit. Enfin, j'ai trouvé dommage que le jeu ne nous apporte pas plus de précisions sur la raison pour laquelle on est enfermés, et la fin ne répond à aucune question.
Bref, Brume est court (30 minutes), très bien implanté et plutôt bien écrit ; dommage qu'il ne soit pas un peu plus développé.
