I'm a spare-time player of IF, an amateur Inform 7 programmer, and a haunter of raif. I'm rubbish at puzzles, so I tend to prefer conversation-oriented games -- please bear this bias in mind when you read my reviews, as they generally do favor the puzzle light.
I've changed names on this site a few times - I'm currently Rose, but I have previously been IcyChoc and Laela. Just to avoid any possible (but unlikely) confusion.

*** Okay but bland
**** Enjoyable, but missing a few essential elements
***** An excellent game missing very little
