Have You Played... Endless, Nameless?
Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.
When I first reviewed interactive fiction masterpiece Endless, Nameless in 2012, I just begged that people go play it without reading the article. I suggest the same right now. Just go play the game.
It's a fascinating exploration of IF, of eras, of genre. IF is a real weakness in my knowledge, which is why I'm so enormously delighted that we have Emily Short - one of the foremost experts in the world - writing a column about it for us. But every now and then I'll remember to dip in, and find extraordinary, bold and damned smart games. You should do that too and play Endless, Nameless.
