A Collection Of Houses

About the Story

A short disorientating game about dealing with depression, the hidden truths in a family and the strange way in which we collect and acquire things.

This is my first game and was inspired in part by 'House of Leaves' by Mark Z Danielewski and Resident Evil.

Oneirriffic!, March 12, 2013
by Marshal Tenner Winter (Truth or Consequences, NM)
Related reviews: dream, dreams
I don't normally write reviews and I don't normally play this type of interactive fiction, but I wanted to say that I believe the author has done the job he set out to do; to create a dreamlike environment through text. So, I won't speak of the system he used to make it or the details of the game, I'll leave that for others. I just wanted to say it's worth a play through; dreamy, well-written, strange, yet familiar. I'd be interested to see more from this author and even this particular medium of IF.

Kerkerkruip is a short-form roguelike in the interactive fiction medium, featuring meaningful tactical and strategic depth, innovative game play, zero grinding, and a sword & sorcery setting that does not rehash tired clichés.
