Hunger Daemon

Sean M. Shore 2014
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Interpreter

Hunger Daemon is a game about the search of a long-time veterinarian student for a heart, a girl and something to eat… not necessarily in this order. His journey is linked to his uncle, who wants to take over the world by summoning an elder being into his body. Of course this cannot be for real, so the only serious question he has to ask himself is: When are you going to get your hands on some food?

You know what – let's ignore the technical level after this one sentence: This game is very buggy, even game mechanics central to the game don't work as they should most of the time. This is obvious and it needs no further analysis. Let's instead focus on what the author intended the game to be and measure the success of the applied storytelling and gameplay techniques. Unfortunately, the conclusion will still be that this is not a worthwhile game, but at least on this level, it is worth examining in a little more detail.

Anyone who has done some serious maths will tell you that it can be quite magical. Even with the most basic of operations you can do some impressive tricks with astonishing results. It is that feeling of wonder you get, when you finish a long set of calculations that end up with surprising – simple but true – answers which makes people love mathematics. Just think of the flow of solving a problem, that single moment when everything fits together and you see all the connections, and you might know what I mean. And this magic moments is exactly what Junior Arithmancer is all about.

Genre: Adventure
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Interpreter

[Herr M.] Ollie Ollie Oxen Free is the name to a game of hide and seek with a special, slightly grim twist: The school, were you work as a teacher, is attacked, seemingly out of nowhere and by unknown enemies. Soon after you have to cope with the difficult task to search the ruins for your students in a severely weakened shape.


PataNoir

Simon Christiansen 2011
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Interpreter

The stereotype hard-boiled gumshoe is hired by an elderly Baron (by proxy through his butler) to find his 'free-spirited' daughter who might have run away with a shady suitor. The Big Sleep, here we come! Though instead of delving into the dark depths which lurk beneath the surface of society, PataNoir is a game about language. In particular, it plays with one of the most common stylistic devices of the genre: something being described as being like something completely different.

Joining an exclusive game-playing club is not a simple affair. Every aspirant has to go through an aptitude test which starts out very much like one of these silly games which, if Hollywood movies are to be believed, are also required to join a fraternity: You're blindfolded, filled up with alcohol and left in the woods.

Taco Fiction

Ryan Veeder 2011
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Interpreter

Expectations: low, because the title makes obvious references to some of the uncoolest movies ever made; these wannabe funny 'gangster comedies' which just try too hard to be oh-so-cool – achieving exactly the opposite of the desired effect. In this one, you take over the role of a desperate small-time criminal planning to rob, of all places, an all night Taco place. Which, of course, turns out to be full of lazy policemen. But he stumbles into a much bigger adventure instead which might pay off nevertheless – financially and otherwise.


Terminal Interface for Models RCM301-303

VigiMech Corporation 2018
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Interpreter

Imagine a rather bizarre setup: An industrial mech with remote control, which still relies on having a passenger on board, whose sole purpose is tagging items for the controller at the other end of the line. Since naming things is not that overly exciting you thankfully take over the role of the controller in this game. So your task will be remote controlling the robot around a research complex, ordering it to shove things out of the way and punch the one or the other object, while listening to the comments of your on-board companion.


Tex Bonaventure and the Temple of the Water of Life

Jim Warrenfeltz 2013
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4.5/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Interpreter

[Herr M] It is time again: Equipped with the classic fedora and the good old whip in your hand, you are standing in front of an ancient temple to figure out one of mankind's best kept secrets. If you are now thinking about a well-known leather jacket salesman, I am afraid that you are mistaken: We are not talking about the escapades of Indiana Jones, but about Tex Bonaventure on the search for the water of life.
