Town; Afternoon in the House of Secrets


Town and Afternoon in the House of Secrets
By: Anna Anthropy
Format: Browser

These two games are simple, succinct, and controlled entirely by clicking hyperlinks in the text. They're notable to me in particular because of how similar they are to what I'm attempting to do with my current work in progress, and they also happen to be fun, well written adventures to boot.

Of the two games, Town presents less of a challenge, but also, I think, makes better use of the format.

When I read your earlier post I almost brought up Twine, but I figured you would want to stick with TADS 3 if you were in the middle of something.

Auntie is kicking some ass lately for sure.

I have to say, I really like the look and feel of Twine from the user's perspective... But it sounds like it's really difficult to actually work with it.
