You Can Watch the Oscars!

oscars cover.png

The ultimate Oscar watching game! While my family was watching the real Oscars, I put together this wholesome entertain-game, just for you guys! Aren't you so lucky? (Cover comes from here, btw.)

Note that this game does require an interpreter to play. If you're playing from the launcher you're good, but if not, try Zoom for Mac, or Gargoyle for Windows.

You Have to Put the Ball in the Cup *DELUXE EDITION*

noun_in_noun cover.png

A Deluxe version of the SoftSoft classic! Can YOU put the ball in the cup?

(Blah blah blah, needs an interpreter to run; if you're playing this from the launcher, you're good to go, but if not, there's Zoom for the Mac, and Gargoyle for Windows.)

Interview with a Rock Star *DELUXE EDITION*

interview cover.jpg

For Pirate Kart this year I think I'm going to release pointless Deluxe editions of my games. First up on the list is Interview with a Rock Star, which I never really felt satisfied with, although I am pretty fond of its low-key subject matter.

Note that this does require an interpreter to play; I recommend Zoom for the Mac, and Windows Frotz or Gargoyle for Windows.

You Have to Put the Racially Progressive Message in the Funnybook

noun_in_noun cover.png

Yet another entry in the storied "You Have to Put the Noun in the Other Noun" series, this one pays tribute to the late, great Dwayne McDuffie, who died a year ago today. The sharp-eyed will note that this is kind of a sucky tribute to the man, and I'd agree. I wish I could say something witty and profound here, but all I can do is link this and hope that most of you will find it as amusing as I do.

(Oh, and before I forget: You'll need an interpreter to play this game. I recommend Zoom for the Mac, and Windows Frotz or Gargoyle for Windows.)

noun_in_noun cover.png

Healy and SoftSoft Present an IGF Text Adventure Funpack

noun_in_noun cover.png

Presenting my 7-in-one Text Adventure Fun Pack! Requires an interpreter to play; check out Windows Frotz or Gargoyle for Windows and Zoom for the Mac! If you are confused by these text adventure things, check out this handy dandy card!

Games included in the fun pack:

You Have to Put the Ball in the Cup: A SoftSoft classic!
You Have to Put the Spider in the Jack-O-Lantern: Just in time for Halloween!
You Have to Put the George Washington in the American Flag: Everyone's favorite piece of Americana interactive fiction!
You Have to Put the Candy Cane in the Stocking: A Holiday classic!
You Have to Put the Indie Game in the Contest: Made especially for IGF!
Delicious Breakfast: From Pirate Kart 2!
Interview with a Rock Star: Made so long ago and is so obscure that it's just like a BRAND NEW GAME!

All of these classic and soon-to-be-classic games are now blorbed up, so that they can include cover art and bibliographic data and stuff!

Also, if you would like to volunteer to get these games running through Parchment or possibly another web-based interpreter program, that'd be great! It'd certainly take a lot off of Mike's workload.
