About the StoryAfter endless months of indoor recess, an eager student's plan to try out his brand new sneakers is thwarted by one missing assignment. [blurb from IF Comp 2008]
15th Place - 14th Annual Interactive Fiction Competition (2008)
The opening scene of Recess At Last is very promising - well-written, atmospheric, and refreshing. The game itself, however, doesn't live up to these promises: the story turns out to be disappointingly straightforward and uncomplicated, and the puzzles - almost trivial. The game world seems to be developed pretty detailed (in spite of a few minor issues), but the player doesn't seem to have a sufficient motivation to explore it.

They then spent a great deal of time polishing that game and adding extra frills. But the core game is brief, and the means of completing it are clunky.
This is certainly a unique game.
