I am not the Brian Rushton who is the author of the Plasma Master books.

I give one star for each of the following criteria:

-Polish (no or few implementation errors or typos or bugs, nice styling for web games)
-Interactivity (do I feel part of the story? For kinetic fiction, do I feel invested in the action?)
-Descriptive writing
-Emotional impact (any emotion, whether awe, pathos, fear, disgust, etc.)
-Would I play it again?

not sure if you seen my mortal kombat fire and ice game, if you have, that's not really a game to review, I made it to get used to inform7 language. my upcoming game, the untold story, is going to be one worth reviewing. in it, your trying to work up the currage to tell someone you love them. this is not just a game, it's what I had experienced in 2016, so, it's actually a true story. the start, takes place in 2016.

Thanks for the heads-up! The Untold Story sounds cool, I'll keep an eye out for it (but feel free to message when it comes out.)

If you're requesting help with beta testing, I'd put it here:

ok, I just checked, and, it was ground zero, I would actually replay it, even though, choice based games are not my prefrence.

I forget what game it was, but, I recently played a choice based game, where you had to seek shelter before something bad happened, I think it was ground zero, I'm not for sure though, however, I really enjoyed it.

I prefer parcer games, vs choose your own story games.
MathBrush, February 12, 2021 - Reply
I too prefer parser games in general. Although you may want to check out Open Sorcery or Creatures such as We or Tavern Crawler. You may be surprised at the complexity.

In fact, Chuck and the Arena is a choice game with very hard puzzles you may want to try.

I have noticed lately, that, most if games, are choose your own type stories, my question is, why are there not that much of the parcer games beeing made that much anymore?
MathBrush, February 12, 2021 - Reply
There is a competition starting up to get more parser games made:

Each year most parser games are made for IFComp or Spring Thing. While it may not seem like many parser games are being made (compared to choice) there are actually more good parser games being made per year now than in past years. There are just more choice games because many players do not like having to guess what to type, I think.

Thanks for taking the time to review my game, Saint Simon's Saw. I felt this was constructive feedback and I'd be interested to hear about the kind of experiences that you've felt more of an emotional attachment to after playing. Sam.

Thank you for your reviews! They're great, I always know that if you give something a good review it's going to be a good quality game. When you give something a lower rating you always give solid reasons and are never mean about it. I really appreciate that.

Keep on keeping on, and have a great holiday season!

Thank you for all of the great reviews! They have been incredibly helpful in discovering some amazing games that do not attract as much attention as they should.
