IF Name Generator updated

Oh, I want to play too! Let’s see…

Cloak of Ultimate Ditch Day

“What if we get caught? We’ll be in detention for the rest of our lives!”

“We won’t get caught. Check this out.”

Your friend pulls a cloak out of his backpack, and before you can tell him that it’s a really lame disguise which will fool approximately zero teachers, he throws it over his head–and vanishes.

Intercept Your Lunch Money

“Steal” is such an ugly word, don’t you think?

King Tut’s Saga of Erik the Viking

A time-travelling extravaganza.


Obviously a Doctor Who fangame in which you play a Dalek. But are you a rebel who exterminates, or are you exterminating rebels?

When Bears, Bears

Can’t fault that logic.

I Expect You Ate Lunch

No, Mr. Bond…

Dames are Sherlock

Dick Lockhart, Private Eye strolled up to the new detective agency that had just opened across the street. It was time to get to know his competition for the already-too-few jobs that came this way. He wasn’t sure what to expect–another down-on-his-luck veteran like himself? A wide-eyed rookie with a misguided sense of justice?–but he certainly wasn’t prepared for the shock he got when he peered in the window. The agency was full of… dames!

Gymnasium of Horrors

And you thought normal gym class was bad…

Virus Toast

Why you shouldn’t make breakfast for people when you have the flu.

Scene of the Crime Bermuda Triangle

The police have been called in to investigate the rash of disappearances in the Bermuda Triangle. Will they solve the crime and make it back to shore, or will they too be trapped?!

Robot of Silver Mountain

Chased away from civilization by AI-fearing humans, a lone robot ekes out an existence in the wilderness of Silver Mountain…

… okay, I should probably stop now. But it’s so much fun!

You may or may not know that The Crimson Tape was actually the protagonist of the Superhero League of Hoboken, easily the fourth greatest post-apocalyptic computer game of the 1990s.

What are the other three? I’m guessing “Fallout” is one.

Fallout 2, Beneath a Steel Sky, Fallout. Any other contenders?

Superhero League doesn’t have the depth or replayability of the Fallouts and the puzzles and story aren’t as good as Beneath a Steel Sky, but the gameplay is still fun and the jokes come thick and fast. It plays a bit like Wasteland but it’s more accessible; it’s open-world but play essentially proceeds through a series of stages, each stage culminating in an encounter with your nemesis, Dr Entropy- an evil jack-in-the-box.

EDIT: Also, it’s worth pointing out that Superhero League of Hoboken is a Steve Meretzky game, if that sways anyone for or against it…

How true!
(A month ago I moved to Moscow after 9 years of West-Africa, and I am still laughing out loud and kicking the air at times when I see the speed of the hotel lounge WiFi connection.)

Castle about Gaming

Just because I’m totally castle about gaming.

More fun with the generator:

That generator is so entertaining.

Now here’s a mysterious and unappealing title:

Thror’s “Onion”

Aww, shit, and here I was about to get to work on a Shufflecomp entry.


“She’s Got a Thing for Lizard King” is a Shufflecomp entry.

Selma’s Portal
“What are you doing, Doctor King? Stop it! I… I… We are pleased that you made it through the final challenge where we pretended we were going to murder you.”

The Blair Grail
It’s probably in Iraq somewhere, right? I have very firm assurances that we’ll be able to find evidence of it.

The Man Gardens
My desires are… unconventional.

Curses! 1981
Embarrassing juvenilia; Graham Nelson holds forth about how his crappy house is boring, which sixth-form girls he has a crush on, and how badass Tygers of Pan Tang are.

The Black Mutant
In the 1960s, this probably felt really progressive, but by now Stan Lee is probably pretty embarrassed about this.

Rhyme the Oregon Legislature!
Yo I’m Oregon Senate President Peter Courtney / down with lumber and a predatory state lottery / got my stacks of wax, I’m gonna wreck the decks / we’re like doubleyou-A with more hipsters, less tech

Whitman Deadsville
“Do I contradict myself?” racks shotgun one-handed, shoots zombie in face “I am large, motherfucker, I contain multitudes.”

I would love to see the Generator updated.

I guess I need new business cards.

“Stiffy Makane: Termination” must be made.

Nostradamus’s Pants

Wow. There’s a song by a very famous Dutch comedian about Nostradamus, and the chorus goes like this: “Nostradamus, Nostradamus. Nostradamus in his tight green pants. They were looking good on him! Nostradamus, Nostradamus. Nostradamus in his tight green pants.” When the song has seemingly finished, this chorus is then developed into an, uh, rather banal coda. (“Tight green pants. With a big bulge. Tight green pants. Big big big bulge. Tight green pants. That big **** of Nostradamus [… and so on].”)

(Turns out there’s an English show of his on Youtube, if you’re curious. No Nostradamus, I think.)

Oh well, fell down that rabbit hole for a while. A few for your delectation.

The Plague Tutorial

Just two short steps.

The Terrible, Old Shit!

A fair description of a large part of the IF back catalogue.

Monday, For Tea

And then the Beast said to Belle: “I want you.” She replied, breathlessly, already unbuttoning her shirt: “When do you want me? How do you want me?”

Operation Operate!

Not the most inspired episode of ER.

One Way Dagger

It would be good for the assassin if that direction were in .

Gamlet Studies

Not a game. An academic magazine dedicated to the works of J. Pudlo, entirely written and edited by said J. Pudlo under a wide variety of pseudonyms.

Flawed II

Truly takes the formula of the first part to perfection.


Some of these have the makings of a speed-jam.

The cursed dagger can only be carried in one direction. Too bad you’re in Rome.

You, Sir, owe me a cup of coffee because I deserve another chance to keep it all in the cup. :rofl:
