As I said above, the competition for 2nd and 3rd was ridiculously tough. On a different day those two spots would probably have been taken by two different games. I know exactly what you mean. All the games were of great quality and had I voted on a different day, or even played the games in a diff...

Hm... I'll have to play it over to find it. Unfortunately, I'm leaving for the weekend here and only on the forum to procrastinate until my parents are ready (although I've been ready for hours) so I'll have to try when I get back.

1. What was your initial impression of the game, when you first opened it up, and how did the game compare? The purpose of the game was clear from the beginning. 2. How did the author do within the restrictions? Brilliantly. The concept of the game seemed to fit in perfectly with the restrictions w...

1. What was your initial impression of the game, when you first opened it up, and how did the game compare? The start of the game didn't really give me any indication of how it would turn out; the game itself, I guess solving the puzzles were fun but the story wasn't much, and even the problem-solv...

1. What was your initial impression of the game, when you first opened it up, and how did the game compare? The first thing that hit me was how well the atmosphere was made. 2. How did the author do within the restrictions? There was a lot in the game, and a lot of atmosphere, and many things were ...

1. What was your initial impression of the game, when you first opened it up, and how did the game compare? The type of humour was evident from the start. 2. How did the author do within the restrictions? Not bad, the descriptions were good, although I wanted to interact with more things and it was...

2. How did the author do within the restrictions? Okay. It was a very short game but nice, if bittersweet. I thought maybe it would be a horror at the beginning but it didn't really end up that way. 3. How were the puzzles and/or storyline? There weren't really that many puzzles; it was pretty line...

How did the author do within the restrictions? They did okay. I liked the descending into deeper levels of absurdities are different ro...

1. What was your initial impression of the game, when you first opened it up, and how did the game compare? It seemed confusing. But I got the hang of it quicker than I thought I would. 2. How did the author do within the restrictions? Very well. Like Business As Usual, they used a unique and creat...

1. What was your initial impression of the game, when you first opened it up, and how did the game compare? I thought I wouldn't like it, that it would be a small game that wanted to be a big game, but I was pleasantly surprised how concise and satisfying it was. 2. How did the author do within the...

1. What was your initial impression of the game, when you first opened it up, and how did the game compare? I thought it was going to be a survival game (which I'm not good at) but was intentionally misleading and I was pleased to find it wasn't. 2. How did the author do within the restrictions? I ...

Oh, right, duh.

I couldn't work out where the front door was. But it's right there, in the description.

I don't know if when she leaves is randomised, as it seems she leaves at different points each time I play, but I've tried about a dozen times now, and each time she leaves BEFORE I can make the minimum amount of moves needed before opening the door and not losing.

Quantumsheep: I enjoyed "Main Course" but I'm finding your game, "The Seance" frustratingly impossible. I can't even get past the first bit! I go to the bedroom, open the dresser, get the key, go south to unlock the attic door, but then the woman leaves before I have a chance to unlock it! I'm doin...
