This is a piece of the intro to a game I started but didn't finish. It has two puzzles in the beginning (or perhaps one extended one) and then doesn't go anywhere. But I'm curious if how this starts "works."

A linear rendition of a short story of mine, but with some effects... More a "read" than a "game". (Note: works best full screen. It's not very robust if you re-click links. Yes, work to do still. Consider this an experiment.)
Work in progress. Uploaded as a test...

This is a demonstration, meant to exercise some text effects. In its current state, you can't actually play the game, but it does give an example of what sorts of effects are possible using Quest. It's all for display - and please forgive some "glitches". If anyone would like the source for this, please let me know. I'm hoping to work up a general "TextEffects" library. If it ever amounts to anything general and useful, I'll post it (or make it available). Sadly, when played in a browser, it's painfully slow. If you want to see it in its glory, you'll have to download i...

Review for The Intruder

Not much to say, as not much to play. But then you probably know that. You have a promising premise, but it just doesn't go anywhere.

Review for Tragedy
17 Nov 2012
This has some nice touches. I enjoyed the highlighted words in the descriptions providing that extra level of guidance. There were some errors (e.g. you slipped into "I" at one point instead of "you"), and after the police station, the text was loonnggg. I tried out the various endings (I found three), and the Mustang question caught me by surprise, as I used to actually own a yellow Mustang... Overall, a pleasant experience and straightforward, if a bit light.

Review for Ditch

I enjoyed this. The writing was engaging and occasionally funny, and the ideas were intriguing. You've set up a world that I'd like to explore more. So my only complaint is that it's too short. :)

Review for Magic Math Mine
23 Aug 2012
A nicely done endeavor. The pictures are a great addition to the basic texting, and I appreciated the extra help given for those who might not be familiar with adventures.

One difficulty. If I entered an answer wrong (and I did on the first one, as I read it wrong), then I couldn't just type the correct answer. I had to look at the room again to get it into the right state to accept the answer.

Another minor point: if you try to "use" the pasty (clicking the button in the UI), it gives a script error.

My last beef is that when the game was over, it said the total possible points was 100, but it didn't say what my score was! I'll just assume I did ok. :)
