by Seth Paxton
(2021)
Average member rating: (9 ratings)

OverThinking says:

Another IFComp 2021 entry. It's clear from the get go that your choices matter and are irrevocable, and it got me invested quickly enough that I didn't get frustrated when it was unforgiving.

Has the honor of being the first piece of IF I ever played (at least, the first while knowing what IF was), and it got me hooked immediately.

25. What Heart Heard Of, Ghost Guessed
by Amanda Walker
(2021)
Average member rating: (26 ratings)

OverThinking says:

Another IFComp 2021 entry. Uses a set of custom verbs to great effect. I have a bit of a soft spot for this kind of horror.

by Leon Arnott

Average member rating: (25 ratings)

OverThinking says:

Another IFComp 2021 entry. I was initially put off by some of the interface (and by the length, which was about twice as long as the comp listing claimed), but it's since grown on me.
