Editorial Reviews

Baf's Guide


As with other IntroComp entries, this is the beginning of a longer game--but this one is unusually substantial and fleshed-out as IntroComp entries go. Depressed after the death of his wife, a man has himself cryogenically frozen in 1997, and he wakes up roughly 8000 years later in the middle of a brewing war among evil archmages. Divided into several chapters; you play different characters in the various chapters. Mostly told in the past tense, third person. Very linear, and hardly any puzzles, but overall a solid entry.
