Lose to win, hurry up and wait, February 6, 2012

I had a great time with the Binary. A game with inherent (forced?) replay value, it was a delight to play through to completion. With no input line (hyper-link only), you end up playing 'guess the sequence' instead of 'guess the verb,' but that's okay, because correct sequences of actions comprise the narrative as opposed to being arbitrary impediments along the way. Incorrect sequences are at least as interesting as correct ones.

Bugs are practically non-existent, which is impressive given the buginess of real-world time-traveling.

The tone, setting, and mysterious narrative-discovering gameplay reminded me of the novel The Manual of Detection.
