The games are coded well, and the tone varies a lot, sometimes dramatic, sometimes silly, sometimes frightening, all sort of tongue in cheek. Many of them have twists, whether geographical or as a meta-narrative etc.
I came, I saw, I had fun, the stories aren't really related, so why don't you just go try it out and see for yourself?
Light in difficulty, if not always in content (although never shocking or mean), I found this a delightful hallowe'en feast.

I'm looking for Easter Eggs.. by morganthegirl
I'm somewhat new to IF and was wondering if Easter Eggs are ever hidden in these games as they are in others? If so, which games have them? If there a lot of them, then which ones are the "best"?
