Winner - Spring Thing 2002
Dude, Where's My Script?
The puzzles are the star attraction here, and they're a good mix. Good puzzles, too. Part of the fun is getting to use props, costumes, and special effects equipment in fun and devious ways. Most of the puzzles feel fresh, or at least are fresh twists on old favourites. I was particularly fond of one puzzle that I mentally dubbed "Son of the Atomic Chihuahua".

Tinseltown Blues is nothing more, and nothing less, than a competent puzzle game. It tells no story -- there is a plot, but that plot is deliberately paper-thin, and makes sure that it doesn't get in the way of the puzzles. The game itself has a simple, and well-tried goal: the scavenger hunt, where you must find objects that have been placed in totally arbitrary, but always hard to reach, locations. The nice thing about Tinseltown Blues is that it has no pretensions of being anything more than that -- it's a game, to be played and enjoyed, not anything more, and it knows it.

This game was the first Spring Thing winner. It was the only entrant in its year, but it probably would have won if there were more. This game is one the author worked on for many years.
You play a hopeful hollywood writer, going to deliver your scripts to a producer for evaluation when they are scattered and stolen by a mailboy!
You have to find each of the seven scripts. This is an old, old-school adventure. Timed challenges, complicated machinery with ascii displays, hidden items, leaps of intuition, locks and keys, it has it all.
It also has a lot of Infocom references. There is a movie set that is a faithful reproduction of the Zork house, and quite large. There is a parrot squawking 'Hello sailor', a set for Hades from Zork, and so on.
This is a real treat for puzzle fans, but for everyone else, it could be fun just checking out the map and area and exploring for a while.

"CROWN JEWELS STOLEN!" scream the headlines of the Meighsalot newspapers. Anastasia the Power Pony is no ordinary horse, and she's not going to let the Smashy Llamas get away with their latest villainous plot... Enjoy a delightfully...

There is an old adage: When you hear hoofbeats, think horses. However that particular piece of advice does not always hold true.

If adventure games are a performance themselves, then it makes sense for some of them to also be about performers. So, here's a list of games involving performers and their venues.
