Happy New Year! I know of three cool new games to play this week.
Emily Short just released her newest game, Counterfeit Monkey, and it’s a doozy. You start the game with a full-alphabet letter remover, allowing you to transform “chard” into a “card” by removing the H. emshort.wordpress.com/2012/12/3 … it-monkey/
Andrew Plotkin wrote a choice-based game for Yuletide, “Bigger Than You Think.” eblong.com/zarf/zweb/btyt/ Like an old-timey “Choose Your Own Adventure” novel, but when you pick up inventory items at dead ends, you keep them when you restart.
Choice of Games released “Choice of Kung Fu” by Alana Joli Abbott; I think it’s one of our finest releases yet, right up there with “Choice of Broadsides.” choiceofgames.com/kung-fu/
