Mouse & Milquetoast - Modern-World Games With a Timid Protagonist
by Ghalev - 28 votes for 16 games, last vote on May 4, 2016; created on May 17, 2010

"In some games, you play a brave hero, or a cynical crime-fighter, or a cunning robber. In others, you play an artificial mind, an alien, or an animal. In many, you play nobody in particular, just an average person of some kind, doing a..."

One Room Non-Escape Games
by tggdan3 - 56 votes for 22 games, last vote on February 19, 2015; created on April 7, 2010

"I'm looking for a one room game, where the purpose is NOT to escape that one room. (Eliminating games such as Enlightenment, Suveh Nux, 69,105 keys, etc). I'm not sure if there even ARE many such games, but I would be interested in..."

Game mechanics as story
by aaronius - 7 votes for 7 games, last vote on June 23, 2015; created on April 7, 2010

"In the best story-centered board games, the rules and system mechanics create or encourage the sorts of stories the game is supposed to be about; one suspense-themed game I discovered recently uses a Jenga tower to create rising dread in..."

Games with easy English
by Fitbos - 18 votes for 14 games, last vote on June 28, 2018; created on April 6, 2010

"I'm a Chinese guy who is really interested in text-based stuff, but my English is not very good for me to play games with hard English. Especially games with slangs every where. So I'm just looking for games that really written in easy..."

Games for iPhone or other mobile devices
by DenniaDale - 9 votes for 9 games, last vote on September 19, 2015; created on March 26, 2010

"This is simple and I'm sure the list will grow as new games are developed, but what IF games are available for the iPhone, or like devices? I'm aware of one called "Cathy's Book" which looks like a lot of fun, at least for girls, but..."

Games with an evolving environment
by Sorrel - 12 votes for 10 games, last vote on May 8, 2017; created on February 5, 2010

"I'm looking for IF where the setting constantly evolves/changes to either advance the plot or confuse the player. Something to the effect of Shade. "

Nautical IF
by Felix Larsson - 14 votes for 10 games, last vote on April 20, 2015; created on February 5, 2010

"I know there was a couple of commercial high-sea text adventures. Now I am on the look-out for ‘modern’, post-commercial IF with a nautical theme. As far as I can tell, there is a definite shortage of bucaneers, boatswains, able seamen..."

Games where the PC is an antihero

Games with an abrupt and unexpected ending twist
by dutchmule - 70 votes for 25 games, last vote on May 19, 2018; created on December 13, 2009

"I'm looking for games which, as in a lot of short stories, feature a sudden and unexpected revelation/twist at the very end of the game, that possibly changes your interpretation of what the game was really all about. (but please be..."

Useless, pointless Z machine games!
by NosesAreAlive - 1 vote, last vote on January 2, 2010; created on December 12, 2009

No map necessary
by Divide - 61 votes for 40 games, last vote on December 8, 2016; created on December 1, 2009

Games That Reward Sticking With Them
by Ghalev - 19 votes for 10 games, last vote on March 2, 2017; created on November 24, 2009

"Here's a dangerously subjective poll. I can be a bit impatient with text adventures on most days, sadly, and if a game doesn't grab me, shake me, French-kiss me and hump my leg in the first 2,000 words (those long intros count toward the..."

Sandbox games
by JonathanCR - 8 votes for 7 games, last vote on February 15, 2016; created on November 23, 2009

Games to Remember
by Newbot - 5 votes for 5 games, last vote on July 1, 2018; created on November 15, 2009

Birds in IF
by Wendymoon - 68 votes for 43 games, last vote on June 24, 2019; created on November 8, 2009

"What games can you think of with birds in them? What's the bird? Is it important to the game?"
