Now, we are in IFComp's judging period. And EctoComp is also started. I would like to begin with this blog two reviews about eejitlikeme's IFComp games. I am not a fan type of person, but for me eejitlikeme is the absolute winner of IFComp. Both last year, and this year. Let's see the reviews:
Behind the Door
This was my favourite from last year's IFComp. I don't know Quest engine, but it was a fusion of parser and CYOA games as i can observe it. The story wasn't too overcomplicated, I liked it very much. It was a bit surreal, but it's okay. The Alice allusion wasn't bad, made a familiar atmosphere. The character of old man with the chess might have a deeper meaning. The twisty ending made me amazed, it worthed to play the game. When judging IFComp i gave You a 10, now i give you a 5. :-) My advice is not complicate things at the future either, just keep up the good work!
First it was a bit hard to me to find out what is the task in this game. It's a rather short, and maybe a bit surreal interactive experience. The game not as hard as it seems. It counts in the game that what you did before you go to bed. There is 1 really task in the game: to choose the correct book in the library. The correct book always depends on our choices before sleeing. Brilliant! The writer's last year's entry was better, but it's also done. One of the best games in this Year. I give it a 5.
As far as I know these two games were made by her. I am looking forward to play the author's other games. And now it's nearly Halloween, and EctoComp is just started in the morning, where I also submitted a game, named Deliver Until Dawn. It's a shitty little game about delivering newspapers in Halloween, encountering monsters, etc. I'd like to review the other EctoComp entries here, when the authors of the games will submit them.
