If you’re interested in one-room escape games, JayIsGames is hosting a competition for them. One of the entrants is Hoosegow, an interactive fiction game by Ben Collins-Sussman and Jack Welch, the team behind this year’s IFComp winner Rover’s Day Out.
I did some design review on this game, although I wasn’t able to beta the finished product. It’s another well-written, fun little adventure with a tongue-in-cheek Western style that should have wide appeal. I was very impressed with it.
It doesn’t look like JIG is showing the contest details at the time I’m writing this, but it should be up soon. Check it out when you get a chance!
