Underrated Menu-Driven Games

Recommendations by forgepoet

Menu-driven games that I think should have wider exposure. Games that might not be perfect but deserve better than no reviews or no rating.

1. Leonard Robinson and the Quest for the Gift, by samyuol (2013)
Average member rating: (3 ratings)
forgepoet says:

A surprisingly fun, punchy piece let down by a rough first few pages.

2. Play Nice
by alicethornburgh
(2013)
Average member rating: (7 ratings)

forgepoet says:

A logic puzzle of intergalactic proportions... okay, not really, but amusing and clever.

3. Quit Your Job Simulator 2014
by Caelyn Sandel (as Colin Sandel)
(2014)
Average member rating: (8 ratings)

forgepoet says:

Sends up the "stuck in an office" trope quite effectively, and then lets you do something about it.

4. Duck Ted Bundy, by Coleoptera-Kinbote
Average member rating: (4 ratings)
forgepoet says:

Not one for the kids. A game that somehow isn't as stupid or careless as it first seems.

5. The Girl in the Haunted House, by Amanda Lange (2014)
Average member rating: (12 ratings)
forgepoet says:

Like a creepy, grown-up version of an old Choose Your Own Adventure book.

6. 6-Million Dollar Tricycle Co-op!
by Solon
(2013)
Average member rating: (2 ratings)

forgepoet says:

As whimsical and earnest as a toddler on a mission.

7. INFECTION , by varshajay (2013)
Average member rating: (5 ratings)
forgepoet says:

If you don't giggle at the end, there's something wrong with you. (Or maybe I'm just easily amused.)

8. The man-eating, halitosic gorilla of Brazil, by Marius Müller (2011)
Average member rating: (4 ratings)
forgepoet says:

Especially funny if you've played a lot of parser IF. (Okay, and there's a tiny "gotcha" near the end.) This one should definitely be online somewhere.

9. Who Among Us, by Tia Orisney (2013)
Average member rating: (10 ratings)
forgepoet says:

This is my kind of game -- pure entertainment.
