SF Bay IF Meetup in Oakland Sat Nov 1st 1PM

There are so many games for us to play this month, it’s positively absurd.

  1. Andrew Plotkin’s long-awaited Kickstarter’d parser game, Hadean Lands, will be released on October 30th. This game is so enormous (and so difficult) that zarf wrote in September, “Eight people have been working on the first (July) test release, and none of them have made it even halfway through (which is how much was implemented in July).” hadeanlands.com/

  2. Dana Duffield, whom many of you have met at our IF meetup, has a new game out with Choice of Games, Thieves’ Gambit: Curse of the Black Cat. “You’re the world’s greatest jewel thief! Well, second greatest. But if you and your team of talented crooks can steal the Black Cat, the world’s unluckiest diamond, you’ll be legendary!” An average playthrough is 20,000 words, so we could easily spend the whole session playing that. choiceofgames.com/thieves-g … black-cat/

  3. Ryan Veeder has published a new parser game, Dial C for Cupcakes, a sequel to his 2011 IFComp 1st-place winner, Taco Fiction. rcveeder.net/if/cupcakes/

  4. Anna Anthropy has published a new Twine game, Star Court, a comedy sci-fi game about the criminal justice system. auntiepixelante.com/starcourt/

  5. All of the Halloween-themed EctoComp games will be released to the public on October 31st. There’s still time to enter: all games are required to be coded in just three hours’ time (on the honor system). viewtopic.php?f=23&t=16754

  6. If that somehow weren’t enough, there are a bunch of great IF Comp games that we didn’t try last month, including With Those We Love Alive by Porpentine, Krypteia by Kateri, and Hunger Daemon by Sean M. Shore. ifcomp.org/ballot/

Emily solved HL at the end of September, and then another tester finished it on the 14th. :slight_smile:

I am unreasonably smug about this.
