Editorial Reviews

>INVENTORY - Paul O'Brian writes about interactive fiction

A Paper Moon isn't a game I'd really recommend to anyone, but for its brighter moments it makes an excellent example of some underexplored aspects of interactive fiction.

An origami-based 'fetch items for wizard' game, September 15, 2017
by MathBrush
Related reviews: about 1 hour

This game is part of the incomprehensibly large subset of 'a wizard asks you to collect items' games.

It's also part of the 'parser likes to insult your character' genre.

It also begins with 'my lame apartment', including waking up with a hangover in just your underwear, which is also a surprisingly large genre.

However, it also lets you make about 15 different objects with origami, which is pretty cool.
