About the Story

The PC wakes up in a dark room, with no idea how he arrived there. He has to work his way through his memories to figure out what happened, and why he has this awful sense of dread.

First place in 2009 AIF mini-comp.

Would be nicer without the sex, August 20, 2009
The AIF and the "normal" IF community are seperated for obvious reasons. I've learnt that they have their pretty own space on the net, with their own set of extensions and so forth.
Now In Darkness strikes me as a somewhat interesting mash-up of IF clichés and the failings of AIF. You wake up in a dark room full of bodybags, with no memory of how...You get the idea. The story is told in a series of flashbacks, telling of your encounters with a girl and your best friend. The solution to the story is obvious pretty quick, but still nicely done - if not the sex was intruding. It feels out-of-place, tagged on, as if GoblinBoy had an idea for a game, saw the AIF mini-comp, and decided to add some naughty bits just for the comp's sake. It's a shame. I think GoblinBoy could write a game where the girl (Spoiler - click to show) you're about to kill didn't have supple curves and firm breasts.
