I’d love to see what everyone’s favorite games from IFComp are so far! I don’t like to read the reviews before I play games, because they’re almost always spoilers. So I thought this could be a place where we could list our favorite games from this first week, along with a non-spoilery sentence or two about it, to help everyone decide what to play next!
My favorite game of the week was The Best Man, by Stephen Bond. Which was really surprising, because I almost never love choice-based games. But this one is so well-written, and so disturbing, with new (to me, anyway) uses of the format. It left me thinking about it, and feeling unsettled, for a long while after.
