1-5 of 5

A straightforward game with few failings about being stranded on the road., July 24, 2016
This game was entered in IFCOMP in 2005. It's about getting stuck on the highway, and exploring an abandoned motel to get out.

This game has few major flaws; it has a few typos, the puzzles are original, the writing has a lot of clever notes.

But the game never takes off; the descriptions are fairly sparse, and so on.

Baf's Guide

Another variation on a classic text adventure theme. Your car has broken down on some dreary spot, not far away from an abandoned hotel. Your goal is to get out of there. The author hasn't taken any risks by complicating the plot with elements of the horror genre (like axe-armed maniacs, etc.) that suggest themselves for such a setting. As a result, the game turns out to be quite solid and without any "crimes" against good taste; yet, on the other hand, it's not very memorable.
