I heard some time ago about this topic.
I want to know more games like Emily Short’s “When in Rome #1”
“As the author says, this is a lunchtime game. Easy and brief: just some 15 minutes to reach the end (though it doesn’t really end, cause 4 more episodes are coming - supposedly).”
Thank you, I just know I have seen this topic before elseware.
Many games (around 30) from the last ifcomp may enter this “lunchtime” categorie.
Curiously the game that start the topic isn’t in your list.
SpeedIF and Mini Comp games are usually fairly short. They also tend to have a small map, so you can keep it in your head. Admittedly, they’re not everyone’s cup of tea, but I used to enjoy playing them on my phone while travelling to and from work on the train.
