Baf's Guide

A little demo of Glulx multimedia capabilities. No plot or puzzles or anything. Only really of interest if you're testing a new Glulx interpreter or are trying to decide between Glulx and HTML-TADS for your next game.

This is just a demo game, but I found it amusing in a sort of way. It is clearly just set up to show off features of glulx.

There are images (including in-line) and sounds, both background and controllable. Hearing what I assume is Plotkin's voice going 'whoosh whoosh' at increasingly loud levels is enjoyable, as is switching around background colors around a photograph of his face.

I'd love to see someone remake it with backstory and more interactivity, but keeping everything that's already in it.

Best experienced downloaded.
