Jörgs Wort[be]reich
Rezension zum IF-Comp 2007 (German)
Als Erskine Ring lebst du in einer düsteren Zukunft, in der die Verpflegung knapp und die Gesellschaft zerrüttet ist. Eines Tages erhältst du eine mysteriöse Botschaft auf deiner Videokamera, die dich antreibt, auf die Suche nach deinem Schicksal zu gehen. Diese Suche wird dich zu unterirdischen Wohnanlagen und künstlichen Umweltbarrieren führen, du wirst Leidensgenossen und Gewaltverbrecher kennenlernen, und am Ende findest du etwas ganz und gar unerwartetes.

A confusing futuristic game about... I'm not sure, February 3, 2016
In this game, you play a young photographer during acts of terrorism on a campus. Crime is rampant, and people across the world are moving underground.

You have been receiving messages telling you to do various things. As you carry them out, you get closer to finding your way to your family and/or safety.

The game has an odd hook, which is that it's written in first person with all scenery objects included in two lists: "Good" and "bad".

Overall, the story is interesting and fun but didn't make sense to me yet. I'm interested to read other reviews and see what other people thought.

Dystopia by dacharya64
I love dystopian fiction, and after playing Square Circle, I decided I had to see if there were other dystopian tales in the IF-verse.
