About the Story

A surreal landscape - or three surreal landscapes? "Ogres" consists of three game files, each representing the same area, but with subtle differences.

The readme file warns: "ONE OF THESE GAMES (Red, White, and Black) might be CURSED... No one knows which one is the "real" one. But if you play the wrong one and only that one you're gone."

An entry in the 2003 IF Art Show.

Entrant, Landscape - 2003 IF Art Show

Editorial Reviews

Baf's Guide

This peculiar and dreamlike piece actually consists of three different game files; each one describes what is (apparently) the same landscape, but with some variations, and the interest of playing arises to a large extent from comparing the different representations. With that said, the descriptions are so metaphorical and surreal that it is quite difficult to extract from them any clear sense of physical layout or context.
