A homebrew parser with great interface; a catburglar story, February 3, 2016
by MathBrush
Related reviews: IF Comp 2015
Second Story features a web-based parser that is, in my opinion, a quite nice visual improvement over several other parsers.

The story is about a catburglar who has changed their life, but has to go back to work to save their brother.

Gameplay is straightforward, taking, opening, and dropping things, but the story drives the game forward. It's fast and fun. I especially liked the twist at the end.

I recommend this game to those interested in developments in parser technology, and for those into crime-based stories (it reminded me a bit of the story of PataNoir, stripped from its mechanic).

Um?, December 2, 2015
So this is a pretty cool game, and the writing is ok, but when it came to making choices where you had to type what to do and it took me many tries to get it to work. Then finally I came to the hostess area and I couldn't figure out how to get past, it didn't give me any hits as to how. So that is when I stopped the game. Thank you develpoer for the effort, but this isn't my kinda game.
