Continued Dreamhold

Worked on Dreamhold tonight.

The game was made specifically to be a beginner/tutorial IF, and it has “narration” of sorts, coaching how you how to play this IF, and IF in general.

I like the idea of it, and I think I’m doing alright, but mapping it has been a pain in the butt! I don’t have very many IF under my belt but mapping this “beginner” IF sure does require some not-so-beginner cartography skills.

No, its not part of IFcomp, but I saw it and just had to play it. And what I have done so far I have enjoyed… The mapping has been more frustrating than anything else… And perhaps with some of these games that proclaim themselves to be beginner IF’s, it may not be necessary to map everything. Since I’ve already started mapping it and taking notes on it, I’d like to continue that… If only for the sake of completeness (I did that for Lost Pig and Body Bargain… although I didn’t do that for 9:05).

Anyway, it’s really late and I should probably get some sleep as I do work a double tomorrow… ciao!

Finished Body Bargain

Just finished Body Bargain. And, my stomach is a little upset. I get the feeling that there are multiple endings to this game. And, while I could play through this game again to explore and find out what those other endings might be, I’d rather play another entry in IFComp 2012.

Upon reading the walkthrough, there are indeed other outcomes than the one I experienced. And actually, before I move on to another one, I may go back and do the other playthroughs. An alarming level of interactivity in 388k 😉

Semi productive day

Worked, ate lunch with good buddy lazer. Came home, took a nap, ate dinner, studied for a bit, watched tv with the rents… And now I’d like to have some one on one with Body Bargain…
