want some rye

ifcomp reviews, group 1!

So the annual Interactive Fiction Competition just started, and apparently we don't have to hold reviews until the end of the IF Comp any more, so I might as well post these as I play. (Feel free to wait until after to read if you're going to; I am going to do that with other people's reviews after feeling odd about reading a few which disagreed with me on games I've played.)

I'm not putting numerical ratings on now, as I do tend to grade on a curve for the comp. Instead, I'll just do pretentious hipster-restaurant menu descriptions. :)

I've mostly stayed spoiler-light with these reviews, so that they won't spoil the experience if a description sounds intriguing, but they're not spoiler-free.

And those were the games I played on my first day. Next up: The Contortionist, Fifteen Minutes, Unform, The Urge, Zest, Missive.

Note: if linking, link to my ifcomp 2014 tag so that the spoiler cuts are intact.
