A bunch of great games are available for us to try! There's a big game, and a bunch of smaller ones.
The big game is "Where the Water Tastes Like Wine" http://www.wherethewatertasteslikewine.com/ a gorgeous game composed of little illustrated visual-novel vignettes. A star-studded team of IF authors collaborated on this.
If you've been to a few of our meetups, you'll definitely recommend a few names on this list of authors who worked on WTWTLW: Emily Short, Gita Jackson, Cara Ellison, Jordan Minor, Mari Landgrebe, Claris Cyarron and Silverstring Media, Leigh Alexander, Sydney Meeker, Anne Toole, Stuart Arias, Jolie Menzel, Austin Walker, Demian DinéYazhi’, Matthew S. Burns, Laura Michet, Duncan Fyfe, Nika Harper, Olivia Wood, George Lockett, Bruno Dias, Cat Manning, Kevin Snow, and Elizabeth LaPensée.
The little games are:
• "What Isn't Saved (will be lost)" by Cat Manning. A hypertext sci-fi game where you can choose only a few memories to keep, erasing the rest https://catacalypto.itch.io/what-isnt-saved-will-be-lost
• "Ex Materia" by Juhana Leinonen. A hypertext sci-fi game with nifty effects https://nitku.net/if/exmateria/
• "Dolores and the Cave" by Magda Knight. A choice-based horror game, played in dialogue with a creepy antagonist https://www.mookychick.co.uk/dolores-and-the-cave.php
