My new walkthroughs for September 2020

Recommendations by David Welbourn (Kitchener, Ontario)

During the morning of Monday September 28, 2020, 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

Note: I also published a walkthrough for "Paulinus fights for Christianity", but I have no links to the game itself; see Paulinus walkthrough.

In this huge tribute game to Anchorhead, you play as a woman named Naomi. You've just arrived at the train station in Backwater, Vermont to help your husband, Peter Cragne, out of some sort of difficulty. But considering all the horrors lurking about the town and Cragne Manor, you may be needing some help yourself.

2. Zozzled
by Steph Cherrywell
Average member rating: (41 ratings)

David Welbourn says:

In this game set in Seattle's Grand Poseidon Hotel during the prohibition era, you play as Hazel Greene, one swanky sheba. You were making bedroom eyes at this hot-shot artist fella when the prohis raided the Lounge. Worse, all the giggle water is now actual water, everyone's disgustingly sober, and no one knows why. Now you really need a drink.

3. The House on Sycamore Lane
by Paul Michael Winters
Average member rating: (8 ratings)

David Welbourn says:

In this old-school haunted house game, you play as kid. You were on your way home from school when the local bully and his pit bull chased you until you had no choice but to enter the spooky haunted house on Sycamore Lane. People have died in here! The bully blocks up the way you got in, and all the other windows and outer doors are boarded up, so how are you going to get out?

4. Trapped in a One-Room Dilly, by Laura Knauth (1998)
Average member rating: (9 ratings)
David Welbourn says:

In this one-room puzzlefest, you want to escape from a room with lots of items but no obvious exits. (This was a novel idea back in 1998!) Features some photographs, a dartboard, a slot machine, a puzzlebox, a closet, a couch, a table and chair, a thieving mouse, and a pink fish.

5. Moving (On)

David Welbourn says:

In this story, you play as a young woman back at your mum and dad's house. They're moving to a smaller place, so you're here to finish cleaning out your old room. Explore the memories associated with your old things and remember the lessons you've learned.

6. The Magnificent Museum of Masterly Masterworks, by Nils Fagerburg (as Inverted Normals) (2020)
Average member rating: (2 ratings)
David Welbourn says:

In this puzzleless work of interactive fiction, you may tour a small museum of art pieces inspired by the interactive fiction works of Ryan Veeder. The source code is also presented as artwork.

7. Balder's Death, by Wynne Lok (2011)
Average member rating: (1 rating)
David Welbourn says:

This is a simple and clumsy retelling of the Norse myth about how the god Balder died. The sole interesting feature of this retelling is that, depending on your choices, you may be playing as the blind god Hod, or as the trickster god Loki, or as Balder himself.
