What does AIF stand for? Adult Interactive Fiction. If you likely to be offended by games with sexual content, you are advised not to open these files.

Memories are Made of These is probably my favorite example of AIF after Interstate Zero. So I was really looking forward to playing another game by Optimus. I was not disappointed.

Optimus employs two unique concepts into his entry. First, the main character you are planning to boff wants you more than you want her. There are no puzzles to solve in order to get her (come to think of it, this is also much like MaMoT). Secondly, all characters involved are rather pathetic examples of human life. While this left me apathetic with regards to the characters and what happened to them, the underlying story was intriguing enough to keep my attention. Sort of like Wild Things.

There are multiple endings, and like Tapestry, the PC is relatively satisfied with all of them. While the player might not then have anything to relate to, it works as a basic case study of human thought processes.

Had this game been fleshed out a bit, and better yet, not restricted by the limits of the competition, I think I would have enjoyed it even more. As it were, I had completed it in an unsatisfying five minutes.

Becky finishes a sloppy 2nd on my ballot out of nine waiting in line.
