Gardening for beginners by Juhana Leinonen
Gardening for Beginners by Juhana Leinonen is a short speed-IF game describing the misadventures of a budding gardener.
What is supposed to be a peaceful and upbeat day of work quickly turns into a nightmare as the player is beset by the horrors of nature.
I can recommend this game as a choice to suggest to text adventure newbies, as it is uncomplicated, easy to play and funny to boot.
Personally I would add an option to name your fish to add some more personal involvement to the game. In fact the enclosed framework of the game world even would allow for a game granting the player to do whatever he wanted to do (e.g. drink the poison, or eat the fish).
Anyway, quite a fun little title to play.
