This is my first post reviewing Interactive Fiction competition submissions. If you have no interest in IF Comp stuff, you can skip over, since I'm going to also use jump-cuts to serve as spoiler space. Reviews of IF Comp games will generally have spoilers, so be advised before clicking on the jump.
First Review is of Gleaming the Verb and is practically spoiler free. I'm picking the games to play sort of randomly, to be honest, by whatever strikes my fancy and this one looked short.
Cutting mostly to practice cutting correctly. This is a test of cutting!
There's actually not much I can say about this one that hasn't been said by other reviewers. I thought it looked short but it is really short. It had no particular story to speak of. Stuff outside of the scope of the main puzzle wasn't implemented at all. Once you 'get' it, it's pretty boring. Maybe future reviews will be more interesting than this!
Shouldn't it be 'gleaning?' I thought. No, it's a reference to some movie, about a cube, that I never saw, and the title of that movie doesn't make sense either. Huh.
