My new walkthroughs for May 2021

Recommendations by David Welbourn (Kitchener, Ontario)

On Friday May 28, 2021, I published new walkthroughs for the games and stories listed below! 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.com/dswxyz.

Oh, there's one extra walkthrough for an incomplete game on the IF Archive called in the skin of a lion quest: caravaggio's journey (2012) by parrishka, but it's not on IFDB yet. My walkthrough for that game is at plover.net/~davidw/sol/i/inski12.html.

David Welbourn says:

In this game, you play as one of the newly-dead sent to Hell via a large luxury yacht. You soon learn that Hell isn't a place for eternal torment anymore. They've modernized. You're free to explore, find employment, get a driver's license, and even visit Heaven if you want to. So what do you want to do with your afterlife?

2. The Four Eccentrics

David Welbourn says:

In this surreal game that may be just a dream, you fall out of the sky into a park, but instead of waking up, your left arm falls off. Nearby, you find the beautiful Architect, her face made of flowers, indisposed with a large weevil lodged in her brain. Later, you learn that the Expert, the Engineer, and the Farmer have not been seen in ages, their fates unknown. The absence of the Expert is particularly troubling, since with her vast knowledge, she could quickly fix the land's ills.

3. A Rope of Chalk
by Ryan Veeder
(2020)
Average member rating: (24 ratings)

David Welbourn says:

This is a story about a sidewalk chalk tournament in 2011 that went disastrously wrong. It's told from several points of view, and some of the protagonists experience drug-induced hallucinations. After the story is over, you can tour Ryan Veeder's office, examine some of his research materials, and learn how everyone is doing in 2020.

4. Captivity

David Welbourn says:

In this game, you play as a well-born young woman kidnapped by the lecherous Duke Esteban to be ravished. Your parents cannot pay the ransom and the one man sent to rescue you has failed. If you want to escape from the duke's castle with your virtue intact, you'll have to manage it yourself.

5. Out
by Viktor Sobol
(2019)
Average member rating: (20 ratings)

David Welbourn says:

In this short puzzleless story, you are taking a walking tour outward, ever outward, starting from your room in your house. How far out can you and your dog, Alpha, go?

6. Hidden Verbiage, by Linus Hamilton (2018)
Average member rating: (2 ratings)
David Welbourn says:

In this short wordplay game, you play as a someone sent by King Azaz to restore the cities of Reality and Illusion. Here, between the two cities, illusions are hiding things you need to FIND, and somehow reshaping a thing's absence into something else that doesn't quite belong. For example, why is a troll threatening to give you ab lace?

7. At the Bottom of the Garden, by Adam Biltcliffe (2000)
Average member rating: (4 ratings)
David Welbourn says:

In this small charming game, you play as a retired homeowner trying to protect your wife Martha's prize rosebush from an increasing horde of dragons before she and her horticulturally-minded friends arrive to admire it. Fortunately, these dragons are quite small and stupid, but there's only so much that one rosebush can take!

8. Good For Nothing, by Katalina (2017)
Average member rating: (1 rating)
David Welbourn says:

In this very short intro to a story, you play as a woman who wakes in a humid, run down shack. Do you follow the buzzing to your left, or follow the acrid smell to your right?
