when if-thens become a game
April 24, 2004 4:46 PM   Subscribe

what is it about web games? they start as if-thens and then they become alive. i've been following this game for a while; just out of beta now, free to play. any other games of this sort out there? (perhaps not detective, but same click-per-page web app style)

Went through two cases. I wish there was some kind of primer on what to do. Apparently all you have to do is see whose alibi doesn't match up and just interrogate a lot of people. Of course I'm sure it gets more complicated as cases go on.

Still really, really interesting... there aren't many detective style games out there.

So how do you form agencies? Because obviously there should be a MeFi agency.

Hmmm. In the Sleuth Universe, it would appear that most "best friends" despise each other.

agreed on the Kingdom of Loathing, and Sleuth is fun too. I love these games, independant, creative, fun! One day I hope to have a fancy cell phone with browser so I can play these on the commute.
