I have authored The Baron, Fate, Figaro, most of The Art of Fugue, The Game Formerly Known as Hidden Nazi Mode, 'Mid the Sagebrush and the Cactus, Kerkerkruip and Nemesis Macana. I have also written a large Inform 7 extension called ATTACK.
A note on my ratings: I am mapping stars, numerical values and prose evaluations onto each other in roughly the following way.
1 star = 1 to 4 numerical rating = a bad game; not worth playing.
2 stars = 5 to 6 numerical rating = either does something interesting, but in flawed way; or is solid but truly unremarkable; might be worth playing if the premise interests you.
3 stars = 6,5 to 8- numerical rating = an interesting and solid game that nevertheless lacks something that would make it thoroughly successful; definitely worth playing, but not 'must play'.
4 stars = 8 to 9 numerical rating = a very good or great game that shines in almost every way.
5 stars = 9+ to 10 numerical rating = an (almost) perfect game, a fantastic example of what interactive fiction is capable of; something to play and replay.

|De Baron, by Victor Gijsbers (2006)|
An evil nobleman, a kidnapped daughter and a father who wants to rescue her at any cost--that is not the way life works. Something much darker, something much more human, lies underneath.
