Jacks or Better to Murder, Aces to Win

by J. D. Berry

An interesting effort, though it’s so short that it feels more like an introduction to a game than a game in its own right. You’re a high-ranking authority in a nameless religion, scheming for more power and avoiding plots to bump you off. It’s not very interactive–the game without warning periodically launches into what amount to long cut-scenes, in which your character does lots of things that you can’t control–but the story is nicely put together. The opening scene is hilarious, moreover–it features a sermon made up of randomly generated banalities–and that in itself makes this worth downloading.
