Editorial Reviews

Baf's Guide


The story of a blind date with the man of your dreams. (The protagonist is female.) I've seen this in lists of adventure games more than once, despite the fact that it's not an adventure game. It's just an insubstantial bit of hyperfiction that doesn't branch very much - most choices either end the story immediately or rejoin the main narrative after a page or two. Still, it's not as bad as most hyperfiction that tries to pass itself off as adventure.

SPAG
A lot of the (supposedly) usual Romance novel elements are in there; i.e. date has a secret pain which you must find out about and help deal with. Yes, the Schlock Factor does ride quite high.

However, the writing is where this game really shines. The repartee between author and player is quite entertaining. The game's atmosphere seems to repeatedly switch between "real" reality, Romance Novel reality, and fantasy in a very entertaining way. The tone manages to remain bouncy (ah ah ah, no jokes! I'm not having things getting silly!) and lighthearted at the appropriate times without slipping into pure comedy.
