IF 2009 – The Ascot

The Ascot

This is simply a yes/no game.  Or ‘Shake’ and ‘Nod’ which delightfully work in the parser as well.  This game is written very well, the storytelling is pretty good.  This is probably the first game of the competition that I would actually recommend to a friend to play.  Maybe Interface, but this game for sure.   The game is pretty madcap in it’s approach, all in all.  Normal world logic doesn’t really work on the game, but it does maintain it’s own internal logic.   Plus the cost of failure is pretty low, as there are only about 2 dozen choices in the whole game.  I did enjoy this a lot.  It was a good diversion, probably a bit short.
