An easy-to-play and intriguing IF mystery set in a small town, March 27, 2024
by MathBrush
Related reviews: 15-30 minutes

This Ink game was fun. You play as someone who received a note to come and investigate a town on behalf of a countess who has had to make herself scarce.

Most links involve either moving to a new location or performing an action in a location, most commonly talking to someone.

There are a diverse cast of characters. To me, the most evocative parts were the location descriptions; it's really nice to think of the bar with a back patio that is set on stilts overlooking a river. Sounds really beautiful!

The investigation was slightly tricky for me, being in French, but the game keeps things simple and it's not too hard to solve just by clicking around, although you may get stuck if you don't stop and think things through just a little.

Definitely enjoyed this one, and easy enough for a foreigner like me. I wondered about the motivations of the characters, though; I feel like they were as detailed as the settings were. Except for the priest, who I felt was very well characterized. Overall I like this, though; this is just some little nitpicks.

Easy mystery and fun little puzzles, March 9, 2024

Panique à Mandonez is a fun little mystery game made in Ink, where you play as Camille, the friend of Comtesse de Peyrian who recently disappeared. Taking the first bus to Mandonez, you will do everything to find your friend, and maybe… uncover a darker plot.

It was fun to investigate the village, talk to the different inhabitants, and solve the different mysteries. You need to interact with different elements to get to the next bit of the game (like make a character leave the room to search through it), and the concise prose gives you just enough hint on what you should be doing next*. And, like every good mystery, it has twist on twist on twist!
*when in doubts: pick the options from bottom to top…

It was short, but I enjoyed myself quite a bit. A neat and polished short game.

Only slightly related, but opening a drawer to see Vous trouvez une demi-douzaine de boîtes de calissons. on the screen was so funny to me. Then it made me a bit sad, because it wasn’t real and calissons are delicious…

Une enquête dans le Gers, March 18, 2024

Cette fiction interactive nous fait mener une petite enquête dans un village fictif a la demande de la Comtesse de Peyrian pour résoudre le mystère de sa disparition.

On peut explorer plusieurs petits endroits et parler à quelques personnages pour avancer dans l'enquête, et découvrir quelques rebondissements.
Un jeu agréable qui permet de se détendre (si on a des calissons).
