Adventurer’s Consumer Guide (Øyvind Thorsby)

One of my favorite games that not very many people seem to have played. An unabashed puzzlefest, but a highly enjoyable one: not too linear, with several interesting objects that have multiple uses. Thorsby has a theory about IF that doesn’t need the player to overuse the EXAMINE verb, which means that the feel and pace of this one is a little atypical — but it’s a strong design and well worth trying out.[Emily Short’s description]

  1. Whoa! I love Thorsby’s comics but I didn’t know he’s made a game.

  2. Oh man, this is one of my favorite IF games of all time. Strongly, strongly recommended.
