IFComp 2012: In a Manor of Speaking, Living Will

Hooray! Time for more IFComp reviews. Here, we’ve got “In a Manor of Speaking”, and “Living Will”. For some odd reason, these sound like they should be the same game, and I suspect that if they were somehow combined, we’d have a comp winner on our hands for sure. Or not.

IFComp 2012: Signos, Shuffling Around

It’s time for yet another annual Interactive Fiction Competition! I didn’t enter this year due to Pamplemousse-related matters, but since last year was such a great experience, I thought I’d give back to the community by writing up reviews of all the entries I’ve played. I’ll do my best to get through all the games, except for “Body Bargain”, which I beta’d.

Anyway, I’ll start off with two games I played last night: “Signos” and “Shuffling Around”. As one might expect, there are spoilers behind the cut.
