An unsettling parser experiment, June 10, 2016
by verityvirtue (London)
Related reviews: melancholic
[This game concerns a sadistic kidnapper. Please exercise discretion.]

First Person turns the relationship between the parser and the player on its head, making your interaction with the parser into a dialogue of sorts between a kidnapper and the victim. It's very brief. Details are kept to a minimum, to the point of underimplementation - it sometimes feels more like a proof of concept rather than a full-fledged game that one may be immersed into.

First Person is unsettling once you figure out what's going on, and be warned: there are no happy endings in this one. It's worth playing to figure out what's going on with the parser.

A short horror game with an unusual narrative viewpoint, July 16, 2017
by MathBrush
Related reviews: less than 15 minutes
This is an ectocomp game about a confined, frightening story with an unusual viewpoint suggested by the title of the story.

The game does a very good job at splitting up the parser-viewpoint and the player-viewpoint. It's also fairly grim. I enjoyed this game, but as a speed-IF, it had some spotty implementation.

Party Foul, by Brooks Reeves
Average member rating: (23 ratings)
You're cornered, trapped. There seems to be no escape. You aren't in a jail cell. No, you're in the cocktail party from hell and only by using your wits and luck are you going to get out of this suburb alive.

the uncle who works for nintendo, by michael lutz
Average member rating: (63 ratings)
It will take some time to get through one game, maybe 15 to 20 minutes your first go? It has five possible endings. The original commissioned artwork (some glimpsed in the cover art) was made by the talented Kimberly Parker...
