Publicly Available Alan Games

EmailPrint

If you go here, you can find a list of all Alan games available in the Interactive Fiction Archive. Currently 41 of them, have you played them all?

The games in the list below are the ones I have played so that I can comment on them. They are more or less publicly available, i.e. they can be downloaded from the Interactive Fiction Archive (where you should start looking) or be found on shareware collections, CD's etc. If you fail to find them, first try the author. The list is in some kind of chronological order, the order in which they where brought to my attention that is. Most recent games first, older at the end.

  • No Earthly Use. An Interactive Monoverbal Experiment perpetrated by This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for the UseComp in February 2000. It was the single entry in a mini-competition which was inspired by a long and increasingly silly RAIF thread about the pros and cons of the verb 'use' in IF. Clever game that is probably amusing to RAIF regulars, perhaps pointless for others!
