Game Appearances

As an NPC:

  • Four Days of Summer (David Welbourn; 2017; Glulx). A shameless self-insertion, David is your companion in this game and makes frequent references to other works of interactive fiction.

As a cameo appearance:

  • The Day I came back (Marius Müller; 2014). In a clear reference to his game 69,105 Keys, David is not named but presented with the words:

    Suddenly, a man appears from the cabin. He has glasses, a moustache and a friendly face.

As a reference only:
