In the past I used to do the occasional brief article highlighting a few (generally small) AIF games that most players have probably overlooked, but which can give you a fun diversion for a while. In that spirit, here's three for you now. These are all from the 2006 AIF mini-comp (it was a good year), though none of these won the competition. Links to the games are included.
Shamelessly Slutty: Teacher by Rip CPU
This was a mini-comp entry that suffered from the issue many such good entries do: it didn't actually win its year and thus got largely forgotten. I'm sure I'm not the only one who enjoys the scenario of a sexy high school teacher seducing one of her students. In this game you play as one such teacher. You don't have to be looking for a female POV game to enjoy this one, either. I was a little disappointed we never saw a sequel like, "Shamelessly Slutty: Nurse", or "Shamelessly Slutty: Babysitter".
The Clairvoyant by Priapus Rex
Another mini-comp entry suffering from the "didn't win, thus forgotten" syndrome, this was (when it came out) a bit of an old style mini-comp game, in that it didn't try to reinvent the wheel and push the rules to the absolute limit. Instead this has a small, fun, erotic scenario in which you go with a hot girl to a clairvoyant and try to use the situation to your advantage.
A Dream Come True by Purple Dragon
My third honourable mention from the 2006 mini-comp should go to Purple Dragon's A Dream Come True - Purple Dragon's stuff doesn't usually feature in my "overlooked" category because he was so prominent in the community for quite a while, but he never really got all that much formal recognition so perhaps this is appropriate. This game sees a young couple trying to get together on a school trip. I kind of felt that the scenario for this game put the guy and girl together a bit too easily, but it's a Purple Dragon game so I had high expectations. It's well written and the staging of the first scene on the bus is was an innovative scenario for its time, breaking away from more conventional, full-sex-scene staging.
A point of academic interest, the winner of the comp that year was A. Bomire's WWE – RAW’s New GM which is included in the link with the rest of the comp. There are a few others in there you might check out as well.
What do you think of these selections? Did you enjoy them? Do you have any other suggestions for overlooked AIF that I could feature in the future? Let me know in the comments below.
