A little diversion, January 6, 2014
by Simon Deimel (Germany)

The concept is not bad, but there is something missing behind it. The game makes the player read summaries of newspaper articles and decide which of them are interesting enough to appear in the newspaper. The article suggestions are entertaining and I had some thoughts about them. (Spoiler - click to show)The game ends with a list of the articles that were chosen and a statement concerning my choice. I replayed some times but the choices obviously did not affect the final statement, so the interactivity is just an illusion. There should have been a genuine evaluation of the topics chosen. There is not much time needed to check this out, so it is surely worth a try.

Hej, danke fürs Kommentar und deine Zeit! (gonna stay english here...) I'm glad you liked a concept; this is definitely not much more than that. It was an experiment to try a more complex form of decision-making in interactive fiction. Maybe in future I will try to embed this kind of decisions in an actual game with actual different consequences. I still think it would be a hella confusing game ;)
