Reiko's Ramblings and Writings

The goal seems to be to make enough money to buy an open ticket on the shinkansen, which can be accomplished a number of ways. By the end, the reason almost doesnít matter, but thereís a bit of exposition at the beginning about the PC running away from her family and her fatherís hired goons. The process of acquiring the money mainly involves taking multiple short-term jobs in the area, some not so legal, and solving puzzles to complete those jobs.

A richly detailed mid-length game set in a seedy part of Tokyo, February 3, 2016

Gotomomi was one of the better long games of the 2015 IFComp. The author spent four years making this game.

You play a young woman who is need of cash in a Tokyo train station. A fairly compact map with a few hidden exits allows you to explore carefully and get to no the culture and economy.

The game is all about money. You buy and sell a lot, negotiating everything. Some jobs or ways of making money require several prerequisites. It's important to examine background objects on a regular basis.

The atmosphere is grungy, sad and dangerous. I really enjoyed this game, but it takes more time than a typical IFComp game.
