A game about playing inside of classic arcade games, September 28, 2017
However, both were not completely finished/polished in time for the competitions they were entered in. This game, in particular, falls flat in the most exciting part: the actual game simulation. You play as Mario, and you have to jump with timed Glulx effects, but it just doesn't work out, and later levels are, I believe, unfinished.

An ambitious effort that didn't get pulled together in time for the competition (and has never gotten cleaned up). For the first half, you're a teenage video game junkie wandering around a mostly deserted mall, and things work fine, though it's a bit unexciting; mid-game, you become the protagonist in a real-time video game. There are no graphics--everything's described in text--but the real-time aspect is badly broken, and as far as I can tell the game's unfinishable. The mall segment, if you want to try that, is very thoroughly done--lots to ask NPCs about, lots to explore, etc.--but that's about all there is here.
