IFComp: A Final Thought on Earl Grey

Filed under: IFComp — matt w @ 9:14 pm

Mildly spoilery (though it’s for something that you’re railroaded into doing), so it goes below a cut.

In my review of Earl Grey I wondered why Eaves knocks the sky to summon Earl Gry. Just now I realized that he’s actually knocking the title of the game, which is why the name changes from “Earl Grey” to “Earl Gry” in the status bar. That’s pretty clever.

I’ve also come up with an idea for a game which will rip off Earl Grey rather, and probably do most of the things that annoyed me about it and more besides. If I ever write this game, I wouldn’t blame the authors of Earl Grey if they started up a blog just to talk about how much I suck.
