(This is an edited version of a review I originally wrote for my 2013 IFComp blog.)
The Challenge is a one and a half room demo with graphics which are stills from a simple 3-D modelling exercise. You can turn to face in different directions. There's a knife. And that's about it. If IFComp had a qualifying round, The Challenge would have been eliminated at that stage because the competition is not a venue for incomplete tech demos.
I played the archive.org version of this game, which now lacks the original graphics, which I understand were simple 3D graphics.
All that's left is the choice structure, which is meager. You are in a 3d area, and you can turn left and right and go up stairs. I played another game recently using Unity that had similar mechanics, but I can't find it now. (Maybe from Introcomp 2019?)
The game ends after a few moves. Pretty disappointing.
