Andrew Plotkin 2011
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 1/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Interpreter

A simple farmer is looking for his axe to chop wood. In the process, he has to enter the nearby forest which, according to his superstition, must be haunted. His naive viewpoint is sometimes contrasted by those of a clergyman – or rather the farmer's interpretation of that guy's views. Until a shift in perspective occurs in the last few turns.

It's the night before you're leaving for your vacation. You can't sleep, so you think you might as well get the things on your todo list done before your taxi arrives. Not that your single room apartment allows for much varied action. A futon, a desk with a computer, a kitchen-like corner, a shower, a sink, a toilet - that's it. However, things are starting to shift, change and everything generally gets weird soon enough.


Spider and Web

Genre: Adventure
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Freeware

Let me quickly recap Alfred Hitchcock's theory of suspense with the stock example: Two men are sitting at a table, chatting away about completely unimportant topics. The audience knows there's a bomb under the table (they saw someone planting it before). However, they are powerless - they can't interfere. They want to warn the two men, but they can't. All they can do is watch. Thus, suspense is built up based on the audience's superior knowledge. Spider and Web, on the other hand, uses exactly the opposite formula: The protagonist knows more than the player (his 'audience') and it's not until the very ending of the story, that everything becomes clear.
