Quite late on Sunday March 29, 2020, I published new walkthroughs for the games and stories listed below! Some of these were paid for by my wonderful patrons at Patreon. Please consider supporting me to make even more new walkthroughs for works of interactive fiction at patreon.com/dswxyz.

1. Koustrea's Contentment
by Jeremy Pflasterer
(2015)
Average member rating: (8 ratings)

David Welbourn says:

You play as someone named Koustrea. You have arrived via a one-way blue curtain to a curious house built inside a mountain, where the inhabitants have settled into various spots of singular interest and the long passage of time is reckoned by football seasons. Will the Golden Door ever open? And where will you, Koustrea, find contentment?

2. The Orion Agenda, by Ryan Weisenberger (2004)
Average member rating: (13 ratings)
David Welbourn says:

In this sci-fi story, you play as Capt. Jon Stark of SciCorps. You're monitoring a promising alien species on Orion 3 from orbit on Station One when the General gives you your first field assignment. Outpost 132 has gone silent. You and Lt. Rebecca Crusoe are to take a shuttle to the surface and investigate the situation.

3. Spellbound
by Adam Perry
(2016)
Average member rating: (10 ratings)

David Welbourn says:

In this wordplay game, you play as a graduate student of the Institute of Orthographic Studies. Professor Spruce has given you a mission: find all 26 (twenty-six!) letters out in the wilderness of Phoenicia!

(Note: In the IntroComp release, you will obtain somewhat fewer than 26 letters.)

4. Internal Documents
by Tom Lechner
(2003)
Average member rating: (4 ratings)

David Welbourn says:

In this odd, large, and sparsely-implemented game, you play as a civil servant sent by the incumbent governor to the tiny township of Sebastian to examine the records of the John B. Holden estate. There's been far too many allegations about bribes and extortion in the current election cycle and it's up to you to exercise due diligence and determine the truth.

5. Captain Piedaterre's Blunders
by Wade Clarke
(2017)
Average member rating: (5 ratings)

David Welbourn says:

In this short and amusing choice-based parody of Captain Verdeterre's Plunder, you play as Captain Piedaterre, a sea-faring rat who, after crashing his ship on a reef, lucks out by finding a pirate's house to plunder. Oh, what treasures will soon be yours!

6. Buried In Shoes, by Kazuki Mishima (2008)
Average member rating: (21 ratings)
David Welbourn says:

In this surreal yet serious story based on a historical event, you play as a child experiencing several events relating to shoes. (To say much more would be a spoiler.)

7. Dreary Lands, by Paul Lee (2005)
Average member rating: (3 ratings)
David Welbourn says:

In this small buggy game by a young first-time author, you play as someone in a brightly-colored room with a hot-pink rod sticking out from one wall. You don't know who or where you are, but you will deal with your surroundings and ultimately escape them. Features an evil tree and seven arrows named "(which is currently burning."

8. Being the Ending of the Beginning , by Chris Conley (2011)
David Welbourn says:

In this small surreal game set in a shopping center, you play as someone named Leslie. It begins with you in a tanning bed wearing your mum's shoes and nothing else. Expect to find several odd items and deal with two evil adversaries before this day is over.

9. Comp00ter Game, by Brendan Barnwell (2000)
Average member rating: (3 ratings)
David Welbourn says:

In this tiny pointless, buggy, and incomplete game, you play as a naked man wandering in four abstract rooms looking for something to do while the author regales you with his hideous prose and insulting banter. It's really bad and there's no way to win.
