It all began with a Reddit thread about free horror games; shortly later, Anchorhead took the bronze cup in my all-time favorite video games [Planescape:Torment, arguably another IF game, got the gold – Silent Hill was second, if that helps anyone know what I’m interested in]. A friend recommended that I switch from writing plain text horror/sci-fi to interactive fiction for a change of pace, and now here I am, learning I7.
If you have any science fiction, horror, psych, or mystery titles I should see, please recommend them. I’m more interested in seeing what can be done with Inform7 than I am interested in length or challenge. I’d like to see some more deep games [x self – I don’t want to be as good-looking as ever].
I’ve played most of http://pr-if.org/'s small collection of IF highlights. I’m interested in http://playfic.com/'s database, but I can’t seem to find it. That has to be a mistake on my part, right? No one would create a huge repository of IF games without a means to browse it, right…?
If I could see the source code for the games, that would be a plus, but anything that will keep me thinking about what I can do with the medium would be great.
Edit: oh, I need more than the names of the titles, please. I actually have no idea where to GET them, and I’d rather hear about what sites you folks use than go on a wild google chase for them.
