The author, Manon, is an active member on the intfiction.org forum, so I’m not surprised that her work shows up here. She organizes plenty of jams that everyone in the community can and does participate.

I’m surprised “Buried Love” hasn’t been mentioned here yet. You are a regular human on a dating show with supernatural creatures. Big fan of the romance options and even for someone who doesn’t watch dating shows IRL I really enjoy the premise for an interactive fiction.

Crown of Ashes and Flames just updated with its third chapter. 55k words added without code.

Crown of Ashes and Flames is one of those ones that annoys me because, objectively, it is very good, but subjectively I can’t see myself playing it in any other way than a bitter malcontent who hates basically every character.

I didn’t like Ros in this IF, especially that their precious heir…

And… I don’t know if it was that game or I made wrong with some other (I played quite a long time ago) but I think there were a lot choices that forced some behavior, although I would like to play my MC differently, they didn’t fit their personality.

In general, MC felt like weak despised shit (which is understandable considering that they were a child and in what situation they were) but still it was annoying for me. I hate playing weak characters that are insulted and they can’t do much about it.

Aquarii is a new story that just dropped.

After being abducted by two aliens, their spaceship crashes and leaves you stranded on a galaxy called 'Aquarii", which is populated by a species called ‘Mitans’.

You’re taken in by the Queen of Aquarii, where she reveals you are a child of one of Aquarii’s gods. A cool idea in theory, but it appears the Mitan’s aren’t particularly happy with a human being half-god.

It was one of my favourites. I hate what happened with this if.

What has happened?

It used to be a WIP like most, full customization. It promised to be a brilliant story and there were things that I love and are rare (MC can fly and they actually did it in the game).
Then the author said that MC can be only a woman and changed the gender of all ROs to females, too. Yeh, great.

Why not write a game only for women at first and save others exclusion and disappointment :unamused:

That sounds extremely weird… and disappointing, yeah
Thanks for the heads up :frowning:

Still crying in the corner over it :face_holding_back_tears:

That’s the risk of reading “works in process” I guess. Recently I’m thinking about stopping following them… Most WIPs are either abandoned or changed so that I don’t like it anymore.
