Starship Fabulous, by E. Joyce, Ayse Gursoy, and Chris Johnston
Really Fun!, May 30, 2014
by Jubell (Florida)
I liked this dating sim a lot. They use some of the narrative techniques you find in japanese dating sims in order to bring the reader something really special.

You have the option to pursue men or women and the game is formatted in a way that it doesn't matter whether the player is male or female. So you can play it gay or straight- the choice is yours.

The shining part is the characters and how you interact with them. It doesn't quite feel like a dating sim so much as just getting to know other (alien) cultures and civilizations. The people you have the option of ending up with feel varied and unique.

I certainly recommend giving this one a try.

Tapes, by Jenni Vedenoja

Confused, April 3, 2014
by Jubell (Florida)
I had no idea what disability the main character had in this game. The other reviewer was right about there being no choices. This is a perfectly linear visual novel.

There's no sex to speak of, though. Although it is fully illustrated and full of pixellated nudity (The characters are nude throughout the entire game). So it's erotic, but not necessarily pornographic.

I just wish the author said something about why the tape was needed. I might have missed it but...I felt like I was being a given a glimpse into something no one talks about and...no one talked about it.

This one is more akin to "flash fiction" than anything else.

ULTRA BUSINESS TYCOON III, by Porpentine

One of the best Twine games, April 3, 2014
by Jubell (Florida)
Everyone who grew up with video games as a large part of their lives should play this game. If you look into why it was created, you find that this game is based on an essay on how much video games form a part of our pasts and how we should stop and think about that. Some of us spent hours playing a Sonic or Mario Bros. game and sometimes those games become entwined with events, periods, and phases in our past. Why do we play them? What do they mean to us?

In Ultra Business Tycoon III the player steps into the live, and gaming experience, of a young and avid gamer. As you play you uncover bits and pieces of that person's life. There are a lot choices, a bit of humor, and a fanciful gaming world that we experience through the nameless, faceless, player.

The game deals with many themes and doesn't seem to be winnable, but the experience is what's important. You're just supposed to enjoy the ride, which I liked. If you're an introspective person you may enjoy this game.

Simple and Fun, April 3, 2014
by Jubell (Florida)
I liked this game quite a bit. There's a nice element of exploration and choice and it's just simple enough to move you along. There's also a good amount of light humor peppered throughout the experience. It doesn't take long to play but I thought it was memorable.

Wonderful game, April 3, 2014
by Jubell (Florida)
Solid story and you can tell that the author knows the magical girl genre fairly well. I wish that there was more description for what the weapons you can craft...do. But otherwise it is certainly worth a play.
