Ceci n'est pas une revue, ceci est postmodernisme., April 2, 2016
Given the nature of interactive fiction, someone had to make this game eventually.

i'm just glad that it was in a context where it was actually sensible for it to have happened.

Recommended for: the commercial break of a show you're only half-watching, on a lazy Saturday morning.

A one note game, as the title suggests, February 13, 2016
For the Apollo 18 Tribute album, authors wrote 20 one-room games (and 18 larger games) based off the titles of tracks in the album.

The title of this track suggests something immediate to fans of parser fiction, and the author ran with it. They did a good job with the implementation; I imagine this was not easy to code.

This game takes place in a single room but not always the same one. The room contains just one item, but again, there's more to it than that. Experiment and enjoy.

This Is Who We Are by Sam Kabo Ashwell
A considerable number of games exist largely as the commentary of the IF community (or some subset of it) upon the medium and the community itself. These works are likely to be befuddling to outsiders, but provide windows onto blah blah...
