IFComp 2017 reviews, first batch

It's October, and time for the annual Interactive Fiction Competition. This is the 23rd year of the venerable “comp”, and a record-breaking 80 entries have been submitted. As usual, I'm playing through the games and voting (and so can you!). This year, I'll also be posting commentary on some of the games here.

Please make sure to play each game before reading my review of it! Or at the very least, read some other reviews before reading mine. Not only will there be spoilers, but my ramblings are a bit on the experimental side this year, and I fear that they could be obscure to the point of misrepresentation if read out of context.

It says 'Please come back later'.
And the Austrian text version is missing an E, or rather: the E should shift:
