This game is the French translation (by Hugo Labrande and Monsieur Bouc) of Shade. I found it very useful to use Emily Short's French IF manual (translated by Eric Forgeot).

The translation is implemented very well, with many synonyms and verbs allowed. Due to my difficulty in completely understanding the French, I appreciated having the to-do list; it made completion much better (I had never used it in English; some of the lines made me chuckle).

A worthwhile play, both for Francophones and for others trying to learn French.

"AND LEMME TELL YA, THE MAGIC WORD ISN'T 'PLEASE.'" —The imp. A fiendishly difficult limited-verb puzzle box. Created for SeedComp '23, based on a seed by Rovarsson.

Alone, by Paul Michael Winters

Just you and your car, alone on the open road. You haven't seen another car for weeks. You haven't spoken to another person in months. And if you want to stay alive, you'd better keep it that way.

A Thousand Words, by Milo van Mesdag
Average member rating: (1 rating)
A satirical comment on modern art commentators who have many more words than insights, with a sprinkle of absurdism on top as garnish. For the content warning, type 'content warning' in game. Made for Seedcomp! 2023
