Last year’s competition included a game called “The Dragon Will Tell You Your Future Now,” the joke of which was that you can’t actually get to the dragon. “Re: Dragon” is the unofficial, unauthorized sequel to that game, in which you play a long-suffering competition organizer who’s being sued for defamation by the dragon.

Gameplay: The game has two intersecting parts: reading email from the dragon’s lawyer, and eventually ret-conning the events from the 2017 game. The latter is really just a hyperlink maze, but that’s totally reasonable for a game like this one; the goal of playing it is to read the funny jokes. 8/10.

Mechanics: I had no problems navigating the email interface, and the choice-based scrying portion of the game worked without issue. 7/10.

Presentation: The email account structure for the game is a clever touch, and the interface is clear and simple throughout. It’s truly a funny game; I literally laughed out loud at several points in it. 8/10.

You might be interested in this game if: You want a good laugh, especially if you played the 2017 game.

Score: 8
