A need for Beta, November 22, 2010
by tggdan3 (Michigan)

You are a man. You are nude. You wish to find a place where naked people can live. Off you go on your adventure.

The premise seems simple enough. The game is very short, the puzzles are fairly easy. I solved the game in 33 moves on the first try. The puzzles are very hinted, but I don't want to give too much away.

The game could have been better tested. You find a sausage:
That's plainly inedible.

Also there's an ocean.
That's not something you can enter.
You head into the water...

These are just small polishing items that would have been easily caught in the testing phase.

As far as the writing, some of it is kind of funny.
"You're on a beach. It's very sandy where you're standing. To the north it becomes more watery, mainly thanks to the ocean."

I didn't see any dinosaurs, but I did find cerberus.

As far as this being inspired by a true story... I find that a little hard to believe, unless he wandered a city naked.

It's a short game, like I said, 33 moves. Don't expect anything crazy, and it doesn't seem to quite be AIF or anything (you aren't exactly fully implemented either). Seems like a starter game for a I7 programmer, and I'd be interested in seeing what else he comes up with once he learns the system a little more.

Absurd, but delightful, February 18, 2014
by Simon Deimel (Germany)

In this little game the player takes the role of a person who is prone to nudism. But the protagonist wants to extend this lifestyle. You as the player have to cross a part of a town to reach the nudist camp. Not to forget, you refused to wear your clothes and are naked. It is a story in the tradition of the author -- I checked out some of his games and liked them despite their briefness.

The situation sounds absurd, but that's what happens if you give in to your inclinations.

The game is very short. There is not much to do and the end is reached in a jiffy. There are easy puzzles and the solutions are more than obvious. Nonetheless I liked the absurd atmosphere. The implementation could be better, but it is sufficient for the easy play. The language is also okay. For me it was a nice diversion.
I recommend this game to people who are new to IF and want to check out the mechanics, and also to players who like a short absurd comedy.

Because this sort of thing doesn't HURT anybody., December 27, 2011
by Andrew Schultz (Chicago)

If you like cheap yucks, then this author's works are worth looking at. This may be the most complex of his works, featuring different verbs, a timing puzzle and various silly deaths you know are there but you just have to try. NGW features different verbs and actual puzzles. And it's been tested since its initial release, with a few extra jokes thrown in, with "you can't go that way" better supported.

I'm a bit confused as to why I needed to (Spoiler - click to show)enter and leave the nudist colony in order to leave the place called "win" and win, though I'm probably missing a meta-joke, and also this would've been handy to speed things up:

(Spoiler - click to show)does the player mean unlocking with the iron key: it is very likely.

It's a bit too short to give a meaningful rating to, but basically, it's good for a small lazy break when your usual time wasting games aren't cutting it. On playing games like this I feel sure I could do better, then I sit down and realize it's not so easy. I like the riff on clothes in an IF game, and that's enough for the time the player needs to invest (a few minutes.)

Very Short Games by tggdan3
Games that can be completed in less than 30 mintues. Need not be one room (though that obviously helps). Hopefully, the games are fun as well.
