New walkthroughs for August 2021

Recommendations by David Welbourn (Waterloo, Ontario)

On Tuesday, August 24, 2021, I published new walkthroughs for the games and stories listed below and at IFDB! Some of these were paid for by my wonderful patrons at Patreon. Please consider supporting me to make even more new walkthroughs for works of interactive fiction at Patreon and Ko-fi.

There's also a ninth walkthrough for a very short story not yet on IFDB. It's Major Charles Boulton and the Northwest Rebellion (2007) by Shawn Graham, and I made an unofficial website for it at plover.net/~davidw/games/major07/ .

In this sprawling fantasy/western game, you play as a housewife who accidentally knocks herself out after stepping on a toy car in the upstairs hallway. When you wake up, you feel fine, but before you can stand up, a gnome steals your gold watch right off your wrist... and drops a special gumball? What is going on?

In this science fiction game, you play as a human soldier imprisoned in a cell by the Shwabolians, somewhere. Life became routine and dull. But for three days, you haven't seen anyone or any food. Find a way to escape this planet before you starve.

In this old-school-style escape game, you play as someone whose car battery dies while driving in deadly acid rain. You go to a nearby mansion for help, but soon find yourself trapped inside! You must build an electronic door opener from the scattered electronics in the house if you want to escape.

In this campus exploration game, you begin in the Red Square at the University of Washington to solve a puzzle. All you know is that the answer to the puzzle is a word, and that there will be clues leading you to that word.

5. The Weapon

David Welbourn says:

In this one-room game, you are Tolan, the galaxy's best Mechanist, brought in handcuffs to the control room of the Yi-Lono-Mordel, which is believed to be the Yi's final weapon against the Lono. Dig Leader Cheryl Thadafel doesn't trust you at all, but she needs your help. You are to bring up some Yi text, then stop immediately. Her hologram device is scanning the room constantly, so outwitting her will be tricky.

6. 404- Life not Found (Beta)
by Evan Derby
(2011)
Average member rating: (3 ratings)

David Welbourn says:

In this very incomplete game, you're meant to be fighting zombies in a school and trying to escape, but so far, there's just one locked-up zombie and a large, sprawling campus with very little implemented in it. There's no way to win, so feel free to casually explore the place, kill that one zombie, and consider that a win.

7. Daddy's Birthday

David Welbourn says:

In this small slice-of-life game, you play as Daddy on your birthday. After sleeping in a bit, go downstairs and find your daughters and Mummy. They've planned a small birthday party for you, and there's a present and some cake!

8. Keepsake
by Savaric
(2011)
Average member rating: (24 ratings)

David Welbourn says:

In the oddly-told tale, you play as someone who just shot a man in vengeance. You hear police sirens. You wear a silver medallion and carry a pistol and a paper bag. Time to get back home and make plans.
