There was a long break when I didn’t play any IF at all (about 1990-2018). This means that I have a lot of catching up to do…
One problem I have is to determine how large of a commitment I need to do playing a game. Is it a multi-week effort or is it a couple of hours? I personally would very much like a field in the “game details” on IFDB that says something like: “Approx. playing time about 4 hours”. But, in lack of that, I need some other method.
Example: Lost Pig
The fact that it is a IF Comp entry indicates that it should not be very big but on the other hand it is a Z8-file that indicates that it is big. Wich is it?
Is there a better way to determine the length of the game besides reading reviews and trying to extract the info from them?
