I’m not sure which version of Inform it is, but it’s listed as the 71st most popular programming language on the TIOBE Index.
Matthew Cangelosi’s A Curious Nightfall is a short platformer about a young girl who finds a mysterious pouch dropped by a bird. When she attempts to discover its contents, the earth beneath her cracks open and she falls into a mysterious world. She then sets out to return the bag to its rightful owner.
Playing through the AGS One Room-One Week (OROW) competition entries reminds me of that point in Samurai Showdown IV where the characters consume more than 75% of his life bars in order to gain more power. Some of the games produced in the comp have been pretty astounding, to say the least.

Necrotic Drift and Fallacy of Dawn author Robb Sherwin has finally released his latest piece called Cryptozookeeper.
Sherwin describes the game in an early interview as “basically a cross between Monster Rancher, Zork, and a good call on Coast-to-Coast AM.”
The game can be downloaded from the Internet Archive. It’s a hefty one at around 600MB (mostly because of the graphics and the music files).
