I can't find David's game "Cut the red wire! No, the blue wire!" anywhere in the ADRIFT adventure pages. I just played it and would like to write a review. Can you point me in the right direction please?

I thought it was on the main page as part of a competition bundle, but if not it's on IFDB at

Games I have reviewed:

Not Son of Camelot, but Return to Camelot via my blog and Planet IF.

Makers Local: played, but not reviewed. Never finished, got stuck in this game early on. Nobody appeared to be talking about it, so I moved onto some other games.

Cut the Red Wire! No, the Blue Wire!
Can You Stand Up?

Ambassador to Dupal

As editor of InsideADRIFT, I played all of these. Some of my thoughts are available in the opening editorial. I also contributed a couple of the articles for it. Has anybody reviewed the issue?

Seek and Enjoy, by Backmaster. Wrote two reviews, one on my blog and one on the adventures page entry. Unfortunately, the one on my blog is I think unduly harsh. I sought to remedy that with the more even-handed and properly encouraging review I published for it on in the Adventures page, referring the writer to our Forum, but he removed his game. I have heard from him since, and is a cool guy doing well. If you haven't played it, don't expect literature. It's gamey/puzzly. Uses pictures-- something we still don't see as often as we could, but that IIRC are inaccessible on Gargoyle.

Jacaranda Jim. Still haven't beaten it. Some day.

Jabberwocky - The Untold Story. Haven't played.

In Memory. Played and thought I reviewed this somewhere, but don't see a review for it now. Pretty sure I talked with Jacq about it, at the least. Neat game, do recommend.

Brain Dead Weekend. I beta-tested this game. Nobody else ever seemed to play it. I have not reviewed it, but the author has copious notes from me about the game in general. It's simple and referential/in-jokey about the Pangalactic Gargle Blaster, but we had a fun time with it.

Birth of the Phoenix. Have not played.

Ahhh, Seek and Enjoy by Backmasker and not Backmaster.
