Cragne Manor is one of my top ten favorite games of all time. If you haven’t played it, about 80 authors (whoever wanted to at the time) got together and each made one room according to a general plan by Ryan Veeder and Jenni Polodna, then they were all stitched together.
It has a lot of gems in it, including a room by the author of Anchorhead, a subroom by Zarf that’s as big and polished as some of his full games, procedural content by Emily Short that affects the whole game, the only big chunk of IF ever written by the author of Violet outside Violet himself, and quite a few other incredible rooms. It also has tiny hardly-described rooms by first time authors. It’s incoherent and crazy.
Because of the plot structure, it can be hard to get to all of the rooms to have fun and poke around. This walkthrough has maps and all sorts of other stuff that make it way easier to get through.
Despite being an amazing game, only about 10 people have played and rated Cragne Manor on IFDB. I hope this gets more people able to experience the whole game!
