My claims to fame are designing the previous SPAG website in 2006, and being a judge in the French IFComp 2008. More recently, I developed Ramus, a CYOA authoring system. As a programmer, I find creating IF just as exciting as playing it, but I seldom authored anything serious. Nowadays I am more active around the MMO cousins of text adventures, a.k.a. MU*s.

Sabotage, by Felix Plesoianu (2006)
(1 rating)
Sabotage! is a set-piece story in a space opera setting. It was an entry in the IntroComp 2006. As such, the game ends on a cliffhanger. It's otherwise complete within its own framework, but YMMV....

Secret of the Starry Depths, by Felix Pleşoianu (2016)
Secret of the starry depths is a very short game about a wannabe cave explorer who discovers that when things seem too easy, there's usually a reason. It was originally a demo for the experimental...
