A crazy drug-and-violence story set in Australia, August 1, 2017

This shortish TADS game has you framed for murder at a biker bar in Australia.

It uses garish colors and the writing is choppy and strewn with profanities.

It's an on-the-rails mystery that has a good base story but implementation issues.

Redeye is quite a poor game, but it's quite a good cautionary example. If you play it, you'll probably come up with your own list of what not to do in creating IF.

An earnest attempt at a mistery/action story. Very rough around the edges, with lots of edges. The "unexpected twist" in the end can be seen approaching from miles ahead.

A nice sketch of Australian solitude turns, as the story develops, into a rather stereotyped mystery. Besides, personally, I'd prefer if the author spared at least a part of the efforts he invested into fancy text formatting and other visual effects for a more detailed implementation of the game world, better animated characters, and the removal of small glitches in the game. Still, a few samples of apt characterisation made it worth playing for me.
