I must confess, I wasn't overly impressed with malinch's stuff myself, which is why I've not bought any though I've played their free titles and attempted a couple of demos (though not got far, actually i couldn't get past the first puzle in the first pentori demo).

I think the thing that narks me most about malinch and actually discourages me from playing is their website.


Advertizing and telling people about the game is one thing, but I don't want to have to waid through page after page of ridiculous self congratulations and smug reports about how much they think of themselves in order to download and try their games. for me this has the opposite effect to the intended one and actually puts me off their titles.

Beware the Grue!

Dark.

Hi,
Your problem isn't with the game per se, it's with the program you're using to play it. The latest versions of Frotz have an unfortunate problem when it comes to accessibility on Windows, perhaps something to do with the way text is rendered on screen. I suggest Filfor as an alternative which is more readable. To return to the subject of the games themselves, might I suggest that you avoid Malinch on general principles? The company and developer have, well, a reputation in the interactive fiction community, and not the good kind. I highly doubt your game experience will be worth your while.
Hope this helps,
Zack.

Hi Everyone,
I have been away from the list for quite a qhile but since I am having a problem when trying to play games I thought I would ask if anyone else has experienced this. I am using windows xp with jaws 11 and I have installed the newest version of frotz for windows, version 1.14 by david kinder. Recently I bought 3 games from Malinche games (z8 files) and downloaded a free one vanguard. I am having a problem with at least 2 of them (pinched in st petersburg and vanguard). When I type a command into the frotz command window the results dont get shown and nothing happens. It is as if text is just not being printed and I cant continue onward with the game at all. According to Howard Sherman the writer behind malinche games the games have been extensively tested but I do remember from a few years ago that I also had this seem problem with another of his titles endgame.
The strange thing is that I dont get an error message at all.
Are there any other people on list who ordered a malinche game and experienced problems like this?
Greetings, Anouk,
