The wrong strategy, January 12, 2014
by Simon Deimel (Germany)

It seems to me that the writer came up with the idea of a zombie apocalypse, created a room with some items and a little puzzle how to exit it, then he created a vast area with room descriptions (and the writing is not that bad at all), and then stopped continuing. Most of the things mentioned in the room descriptions are not implemented, some exits mentioned are not further pursued. It is simply unfinished, for whatever reason: maybe the writer lost interest, maybe he did not have time anymore. It is still not justified to label it as a "beta". It should not have been published in the current state.
It is much better to have a smaller game with a tight story and maybe just a small amount of locations than an unfinished code that presents many locations and details and the promise "have a look, this is unfinished, but will maybe become awesome one day". People who visit this database want interactive fictions, not a text that could become an interactive fiction one day.
