A well-done parser hybrid mystery with graphics, November 16, 2017
It implements a blackjack game, and uses graphics and a hand-made parser hybrid engine.
The primary portion of the game is investigating a few suspects by interviewing them, examining their items, and talking to those who have seen them.
However, I never felt strongly emotionally invested in the game. I did feel interested while playing, though.
A functional murder mystery , October 19, 2017
This murder mystery takes the form of a parser-choice hybrid, with an interface reminiscent of Robin Johnsonís Detectiveland. Settings are individually illustrated, and the system is more or less robust, with a separate conversation mode. It may not look the slickest of interfaces - it recalls, vaguely, flash web games with a touch of homebrew about it.
The stakes are not always made clear: there are hints about this being troublesome because itís on reservation land, and about FBI involvement, but these hints never added any tension to gameplay.
I would have liked a little more flair, a little more panache in the descriptions, but overall this is a mystery which does whatís expected of it.
