About the StoryA parody of Infocom's Infidel, written when the author was fifteen, then converted to Inform. To collect a treasure, you must show an ancient guardian how awful an adventurer you are.
[--blurb from The Z-Files Catalogue]
-- Carl Muckenhoupt
[...] it's actually kind of fun, with a few small laughs, and it brought back some great memories of my own abysmal (though they seemed great at the time) early attempts at I-F. (Christopher E. Forman)
Inhumane (a game originally coded in basic by Plotkin when he was 14) [...] is easily winnable within an hour. No guess-the-verb puzzles, no scenic landscapes, no moral plays. Basically, it's the antithesis of everything Andrew Plotkin has made since. (Francesco Bova)

Show how good you are at dying. An Infidel spoof , July 5, 2016
The opening part is a much easier version of Infidels opening story. Once you are in the tomb, though, you have to prove how bad of an adventurer you are by dying in 9 traps.
The traps are fairly simple, mostly just exploring each area and trying everything. They are very clever, however; the glue pit really kept me guessing.
The commentary is enjoyable. The game itself is spare, and not completely compelling, but it is valuable for historic purposes.

Give me a second chance! by verityvirtue
I'm looking for games which work like Bigger Than You Think - where dying isn't the end, where you're given second chances, where your second chances give you gear or skills or knowledge that you need to know to win the game.
