The Bibliophile

About the Story

“Azathoth is a cosmic horror; a force outside of known physics, Higgins.” Doctor Coffey explains, “It is the embodiment of chaos and destruction and now Dennison has found a way to bring this nightmare to earth; to destroy everything we know and plummet the human race into chaos.”

“Hmm.” you say, not knowing what else to say. As if to double-down on this ignorance, you then say, “Food for thought, huh?”

Off-Site Reviews

Emily Short
Bibliophile is a parser IF game set in a large map over multiple days. A lot of work has plainly gone into it. There are loads of rooms and numerous NPCs, and the piece comes with a rich assortment of maps, walkthrough information, and art.

Sam Kabo Ashwell
One of the original purposes of Spring Thing was as a place for games substantially larger than suitable for the two-hour play time of IF Comp. This is more of a hope than a strict rule, and many games don’t aim at it. Bibliophile definitely fits the bill, though: the walkthrough runs to ten chapters (although some of these are fairly brief).
