I’ve been trying to remember the name of a game I played years ago, and that I’d like to replay.
In this game, you were the villain: it begins with you sending the hero to be incarcerated (or executed, I’m not sure). But he promptly escaped and went after you. The meat of the game consisted in rearranging the rooms that the hero needs to traverse to reach you, so that he dies before doing so. Each time you selected a particular permutation of the rooms, the game “played it out” and it ended on either you or the hero dying (most frequently the former). If you died, you had the chance to try again.
The game was short and small: it consisted solely of this puzzle. By any chance, do any of you know it and remember its name?
