25th Place - 10th Annual Interactive Fiction Competition (2004)
A mystery taking place in "post-Hussein" Iraq of a more or less distant future; however, the scenery is so cliched and inexpressive, and does affect the gameplay so little it could be almost any time and any country. If amateurish attempts of writing about a topic the author doesn't understand a thing about don't annoy you as much as they do annoy me, there are chances you're going to like this game; however, speaking objectively, its puzzles aren't the strongest ones, either.

You wake, a pounding headache loud in your inner ear, the back of your head itching and tingling, your mouth full of cotton. The pain drives away your dreams, weird visions of alien landscapes... Ecdysis is based on an entry in H.P....
