I played tons of Infocom games as a kid. I loved them. Then I discovered other people on the Internets still loved them, too.

I like to try to write, too, but it's been quite a learning experience. I'm still leaving obvious stuff out, and I'm still going in for the sort of crazily abstruse puzzles that made Infocom such a neat profit in hintbooks. But I want to learn.

(21 ratings)

Threediopolis, by Andrew Schultz (2013)
(23 ratings)

Very Vile Fairy File, by Billy Boling (2019)
(7 ratings)
Well, your name is Kerry Kyle, so you can't be the worst person to destroy the Very Vile Fairy File.

Ailihphilia, by Andrew Schultz (as N. Y. Llewellyn) (2018)
(7 ratings)
No need for aibohphobia. It's polite on the Zarfian cruelty scale -and- will let you jump to the exciting conclusion if your 2-hour judging period is almost up!

Fingertips: I'm Having a Heart Attack, by Andrew Schultz (2012)
(11 ratings)
It's your time to make a statement. Make sure your nerves don't fail before your heart does.

I'm wondering about games (primarily parser) with weird directions beyond NW/SW/SE/NE, up, down or inside/outside. I like the example in...
