Off-Site Reviews

The Bryant Collection is essentially a collection of unrelated IF stories, originally sourced from a box of notes and story drafts that the developer had acquired from a yard sale sometime in 2008. The envelope marked 'Undelivered Love Letter' is this writer's pick, simply because of the way the author has limited your mobility and actions to one single scene in an airport.

There is however one major flaw with Gregory's IF collection that could not go unmentioned. Most of these stories have very little puzzle elements in them, save for figuring out what to do in each scene so that the story may progress. But it is also because of this recurring theme that causes the inclusion of the Tower of Hanoi puzzle feel so out of place, something that only persistent IF veterans would appreciate in this package.
