A haunting old novella made into a TADS game, June 5, 2017
This game is adapted from an old novella, so it has a bunch of textdumps; however, I really enjoy the writing of the novella, so I didn't mind.

There were some pretty hard puzzles, some that were good, and some that were 'guess the verb'.

Worthwhile to play if you like Dunsany/Chambers/Lovecraft's writing.

SPAG

If you happen to be open to appreciating Lord Dunsany's very florid 19th Century writing style you'll find the game very enjoyable and actually a rather clever way of getting painlessly through some fairly dense prose.
