Manipulating dreams for good or evil, November 6, 2017
Corrupter of Dreams is succinct, but manages to establish the PC’s motivation and the key dilemma early on. Without this dilemma, this would have already been an interesting game; I enjoy one-verb or limited parser games because of its limitations and the subversion of parser conventions of offering as many synonyms to make it as player-friendly as possible. But introducing a reason not to go down the obvious route made the route that much stronger.
This is a short, simple concept executed well within its contraints.
A short, thoughtful horror game about dreams, November 5, 2017
Like another game which I enjoyed in this comp, your character is more nuanced than the typical interactive fiction protagonist.
It's a speed-IF, so it's fairly short, but it's well-polished. There weren't many surprises due to the foreshadowing, but the imagery was vivid.
