A short, surreal game with some straightforward puzzles , April 21, 2016

The Island is a relatively short surreal game with some straightforward puzzles (guess a riddle, search every item, push everything, follow instructions, etc.). It includes some old-school puzzles that are tricky to program (like a raising/lowering bucket puzzle similar to the one in Zork I).

I actually like surreal creepy games like this. The plot structure was strongy reminiscent of Recorded, from a later IFComp.

The ending implies that (Spoiler - click to show)everything is a loop, with you becoming the new screaming man and the screaming man becoming the new guy in the coffin.
