About the Story

The Delusion Dilemna is a 60,000+ word twine game, where you are stuck in a maze of dreams and have to figure out what is real. Your actions in a previous world will have no effect on the current world, but each world has its own branches, so your decisions do impact what happens in each world. It has two different endings, each resulting from a decision made in the last layer. There are a couple sci-fi worlds, and a couple fantasy worlds, among others. The game also contains 5 different theme songs. You can talk to a number of interesting characters in the game, including Iltara (a half-succubus), Ilgerenda (Iltara's daughter), Evan Times (a research mage who attached dragon wings to himself), and Sir Raulin Wylde (my version of Don Quixote). It was recently renamed from The Dream Dilemna upon realizing that that name was taken. It is now available for free.

Also, if you are going to give a bad rating (less than 3 stars), please explain what you didn't like about the game so I can improve future games.

Is it real?, May 16, 2017

This is a great game where you are never quire sure if the world you are in is real or imagined. The writing was quite good and the plot very original. It did pull elements from thrillers, King Author legends, and sci fi novels. Add to it a bit of philosophy and it becomes a deep, engaging game I wanted to play repeatedly to find out more.

Games featuring music by Karl Ove Hufthammer
I have always thought that music has a huge potential for enhancing IF, more so than graphics has. So what are the best examples of IF games that use music? Note that this poll does not include games with only sound effects; they have to...

Mother-Daugher Relations by matt w (Matt Weiner)
What are some IF works that involve a relationship between a mother and a daughter? Not necessarily as the center of the work, but as something that impinges on it at all.

Games with graphics and/or sound by eyesack
I couldn't find an easy way to search for this, so I figured I'd ask the hivemind: What games use graphics and/or sound to enhance the gameplay, similar to City of Secrets and Necrotic Drift?
