Kicker

Hut one! Hut two! Hut eleven! Hut whatever! Hut hut hut! It’s game time, kicker! Taste the incomparable flavours of glory and defeat! Even a tied game perhaps! Play as the kicker on an American football team! Get used to life on the sidelines, kid!

Kicker was written in Inform 7 and is based on an idea concocted at dinner with Doug Wilson and Simon Christiansen. See the game’s ‘walkthrough’ for testers’ names, bless them all.

You can read my writing about the game on my blog. Kicker was reviewed by Emily Short, Too Much Free Time, and LMD Adventures. It placed 20th in the 2012 edition of the Interactive Fiction Competition.
