Are there any games where you use special abilities like mutant powers or spells?

Are you only interested in ADRIFT games?

I haven't seen any games with "mutant powers" (like x-men) but there are lots of fantasy games with spells, such as "The Lost Labyrinth of Lazaitch" ( https://www.adrift.co/game/1534 )

"The Potter and The Mold".

If it doesn't have to be ADRIFT, there's also "Hero Inc. Volume 1" (unfortunately, the other games were never made), "The Epic Origins of Camel Girl", and 3 episodes of The Frenetic Five, three episodes of Earth and Sky, and a bunch of Scott Adams games.

I was going to suggest Earth and Sky. Never played anything but the first and can only vaguely recall it, but they're pretty well known. Really the only ones I can think up off the top of my head, although I know David is working on a pretty extensive one.

Always seemed a little strange to me the genre wasn't more popular as to me it seems like it would lend itself perfectly to IF. I blame a bias against something perceived as anti-intellectual, and the influence of all these....Europeans...

My game, I summon Thee, has you play as a sumernaturally powerful demon-being summoned by an eldritch ritual. You have various "powers" including the ability to summon items on command, eat characters, and melt characters' brains.

Also, I recommend The PK Girl, by some accounts the best and most ambitious ADRIFT game ever made

Oh right, I completely forgot you made a game that no one but you has ever played.

The anime is very strong with the PK Girl, tolerance levels may vary. But looking at Based's age (auggh how do you even pronounce the plural of Based?!) he probably already reads comics right to left by reflex.

Thanks for the suggestions! I'm only interested in Adrift games for now but I'll check these out. Interesting to know there haven't been that many, maybe I could make one.

And happy Easter everyone!

@The0didactus do the objects in I Summon Thee do anything? I got killed while I messed with them and I wonder if that was you playing a trick.

most objects in I Summon Thee! do nothing. After all, why would you need to do anything with objects? You're an omnipotent elder thing, if you need to open a locked door you just ANNIHILATE THE DOOR.

I created a bunch of random dynamic objects for I Summon Thee! just so the CONJURE command would do interesting things. You can CONJURE fish, cars, gold, ham, and cigars, along with many other things.

Some objects in I summon thee! are edible. You can DEVOUR cake, potatoes, and most other food. If you do, you gain power. It's not worth CONJURING food and then DEVOURing it...unless you want to, for fun.
