50 Years of Text Games, by Aaron A. Reed
Within days of Nepstad’s announcement, a group of Spanish authors contacted him to say that their community, too, wanted to submit an anthology game. Over a dozen stories in three different languages were now planned to be part of the project.
...
The Spanish community’s games hewed closer to the standard auteur-driven mode of IF authorship, with each vignette given a title and credited to particular authors, and thus exhibited a somewhat wider range of styles and subjects.
...
The Spanish collaborators, in contrast to the French authors newly arrived to the hobby, were mostly old veterans of the 1980s scene, and brought a range of concepts and styles to the scenarios they created. In one scene set in the present day, you play an addict whose bad coke trip triggers a hallucinogenic nightmare [...]

Un museo de estilos, October 7, 2009

El museo de las consciencias es un proyecto colaborativo, y la aportación hispana a la iniciativa de Peter Nepstad basada en el 'Commonplace Book' de H.P.Lovecraft.

Su estructura se apoya en una historia central que transcurre en el museo que da nombre a la obra, bastante respetuosa en su planteamiento y conclusión a la "doctrina" lovecraftiana, y en torno a la cual el protagonista puede experimentar una serie de historias breves enlazadas de forma más o menos arbitraria con el argumento principal. A estas sub-historias se accede experimentando con los distintos motivos expuestos en este peculiar museo.

El hecho de que cada historia esté escrita por autores diferentes provoca una cierta disparidad de estilos que puede llegar a ser chocante, y eso también aplica a la calidad. Por tanto estamos ante una obra que por su naturaleza alterna algunos momentos brillantes con otros algo menos satisfactorios.

De entre las historias breves destacaría aquella a la que accedemos a través del diorama. Por su cuidada literatura (con una introducción que por sí sola ya justifica la publicación de la obra) y un desarrollo que de forma muy natural nos conduce a su conclusión, merece una mención especial dentro del conjunto.

La historia central, de corte algo más clásico, nos permite avanzar hacia el desenlace del relato una vez superados una serie de puzzles que, aunque bien implementados y en ocasiones ingeniosos, adolecen quizás de algo más de trasfondo. A pesar de que el juego proporciona la información suficiente para resolverlos, no he podido averiguar la relación exacta que estos acertijos guardan con la historia principal.
